Dr. Shari Becker

Shari Becker is a licensed clinical psychologist and certified yoga teacher who has spent the last fifteen years integrating her two professional passions. In her work as a psychologist, she brings the wisdom of yoga philosophy, as well as mindfulness techniques, meditation and breath work to her patients.

Shari became a certified yoga teacher and began teaching for Kula for Karma in 2014. She has been teaching a weekly class in the partial psychiatric hospitalization program at Christian Health Care Center since 2015.

Shari has a special interest in the therapeutic application of yoga to issues related to food, eating and body image. She co-wrote Kula for Karma’s manual for our advanced yoga teacher training for disordered eating and body image issues, and co-taught that training in New Jersey and New York City. Shari was Kula for Karma’s “Ask the Yogi” webinar expert on yoga and mental health and spoke at a Kula fundraiser for medical and mental health professionals about self-care for women.

Shari says she is very grateful to be part of the Kula for Karma community, to teach yoga to the special population at Christian Health Care Center, and to share the wisdom she has acquired from her yoga practice with her patients and students.
