My Yoga Journey
Hello, I’m Shawna Harkias., a.k.a Sharma Karma Kafe, LLC.
I spent most of my career in the Corporate World of Mortgage Loans and Banking, and completing my greatest accomplishment, raising a Son on my own.
In 2017, I left my hometown of Littleton, CO. (population 47,000) and moved to Tabor, SD. (population 425). I knew that my career would be changing, but I never would have dreamed that things would change so much, so quickly. Before I knew it, before anyone knew it, in 2019 the world experienced the COVID-19 Pandemic. I, like most of us, had to figure out how to do life differently. In exploring that difference, I found YOGA and I am so glad I did. I spent the pandemic learning anything and everything I could about yoga and how to share it with others. I started going to regular classes at the local yoga studio in 2018, when the studio, like so may others had to close due to the pandemic, I realized quickly how much I had grown to love and depend on yoga for my own health, well-being and sense of community.
So, I grabbed onto yoga on-line, and soon that lead to on-line yoga teacher training, I was hooked and at the ripe young age of 49, I finally figured out what I wanted to be when I grew up, I wanted to be YOGA!!
I spent the pandemic doing Yoga Teacher Training from my new “home office” with my two dogs and one of the Pioneers of Online Teacher Training. I completed my 200 Hour Teacher Certificate in February of 2021. But I couldn’t stop there, I started the next course of training right away and completed my 500 Hour Teacher Training in 2022.
I am a member of Yoga Alliance and Yoga International and I strive to keep learning with new classes and trainings each week.
I am excited to have the opportunity to share my love of yoga with you.
Hope to see you soon,
