Sharon Starika is a runner and triathlete with over 20 years of competitive racing experience. Her involvement with the Certified Feldenkrais Method® of somatic education began in 1984 when she had a debilitating cycling accident resulting in nine surgeries. Her doctors said she would never compete again and probably would not be able to run. Using the Feldenkrais Method®, she not only recovered and returned to competition, she improved her marathon time by an astonishing 20 minutes. As a result of this incredible experience, Sharon became a Guild Feldenkrais Practitioner™ and began to develop her own theory and ideas about optimizing fitness using the Feldenkrais Method®. Sharon has a private practice in Park City, Utah and teaches classes and clinics around the country. She also offers instructional online workshops so people interested can practice her methods anywhere.
