    Review by Meaghan Ryan from United States

    A little bit of everything :)

    CONS Cons: If Shara has another retreat in Ukiah, perhaps during cooler months would be better. The facility has no air-conditioning and second story bedrooms and the yoga studio heat up too much.

    PROS Pros: Shara's retreat is perfect for anyone wanting to unplug and unwind. She offers a nice mixture of Feldenkrais, sound healing, hiking in the Redwoods, yoga and free time (choice of alone time, hot tubbing or massage). The food was amazing; both delicious and healthy. The facilities were beautifully situated in the oak tree laden hills above Ukiah, with a picture perfect view.

    Organizer response: Thank you for your review. We had a nice time and I love how our group connected so well. I actually spoke to the people running the house about the heat and they are considering options for weekends as hot as ours. Yet, the next retreat is end Oct, so the heat should no longer be an issue. Best to you~

  • Review by Dr. Aymee Coget

    "Shara has helped me countless times with relieving physical discomfort from my body. I was born with triple scoliosis which is a condition where my spine twists and curves in three places. Because of this condition, I suffer from migraines, difficulty breathing, posture issues, and my ribs frequently go out of place. Shara has helped my spine align and my ribs go back into place. She has also helped me recover from a concussion that I suffered from a car accident. She has the ability to help most everyone become pain free and live happily and healthy. She is my first go to when something or anything is off in my physical body. Shara also is a Reiki Master so she combines her reiki energy ability with her knowledge of the Feldenkrais method so this turns her healing sessions into a energetic reprogramming of the nervous system."

    "Right from the beginning, I knew I was in good hands. Shara did a thorough assessment of how I was holding and using my body. Everything she said was in total alignment with where I had been feeling pain and discomfort. She then began the treatment which was tremendously relaxing and healing. After I felt like million bucks! I felt like I was moving in a balenced and aligned way for weeks after! Nothing short of amazing! "

    "Shara's approach to sexual health is outstanding. She really cares about the well-being of her clients. Also, she is so much fan and very easy to talk to. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to conquer their shortcomings. I'm certain because of her delightful personality, all her clients love her deeply."

    "I'm telling you, you are great at the Feldenkrais. When you worked on me I was mesmerized, and sort of hypnotized. To me it felt like if you continued for another couple hours I could leave my physical body and go floating out the window. My body felt so wonderful after."

    "Thank you for your wonderful healing today. Your magic was received. After 4 days of not being able to walk (even to the bathroom) due to a slipped disc, I can now walk upright again after your 1 session. My neck pain is gone as well."

  • Review by Valerie D. from San Francisco

    "Shara had been recommended to me as I was seeking help for a pinched nerve in my neck which was leaving me with a less than optimum left arm and numb fingers. I was immediately put at ease by her calm hands and touch which was at the same time very loving and precisely knowledgeable and which seemed to rejuvenate all the places she was working on."

  • Review by Ali G. from San Francisco

    "Shara’s touch is amazing. Throughout my life I have never enjoyed massage much but this is different. Shara asked me to walk forward across the room and pointed out inconsistencies in my gait. Then she touched me for an hour. It felt unbelievable and afterwards my gait was even and my whole body felt lighter. Sign me up again. All the pain in my lower back is gone."

  • Review by Nivcole H. from San Francisco

    "I went to Shara because I had experienced a neurological condition in my face a few weeks before that was still present for me. She did some exercises with me, some feldenkrais and some massage. I was really impressed by how I left feeling more relaxed, specifically in the area where I still had symptoms and how she was able to make the connection from tightness around my mouth to my stomach and left me with some exercises to practice. "

    "Shara is great! She does amazing bodywork that really helped me with my carpal tunnel arm pain. I’ve never been to a one-on-one treatment like this before."

  • Review by Harry Mills from Virginia

    "With no Feldenkrais Method teachers in West Virginia, I got a couple of books and your DVD to continue to improve from my lower back surgery to repair a herniated disc. Your DVD Part 2 has been a real treat… relaxing and energizing at the same time. My body feels free and relaxed immediately after your session."

  • Review by Randall Baird

    "You should know that I feel transformed by even one hour and a half session with you. I felt pain in my heart that I didn't know was there, and you transformed that pain into a deep understanding of my life. In the few days since your reading of me, I am feeling/thinking/knowing reverberations of your words into self-understandings that are gigantic and fast moving. "
