About Sharon Amos
Sharon Amos is an experienced Registered Oncology Nurse and 500 hour trained Registered Yoga teacher.
Currently Sharon works as a Nurse Navigator for the Comprehensive Sickle Cell Disease Program at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Cancer Center in Boston.
She teaches yoga part time in her Boston community, and has recently offered virtual weekly classes for SIckle Cell Disease patients. She has taught regular yoga classes for several years to staff and colleagues at the MGH Cancer Center on campus.
Prior to joining MGH, Sharon worked for many years in her hometown of New York City as an inpatient Staff Nurse at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. She has extensive experience caring for patients from multiple disease groups such as breast cancer, multiple myeloma, lymphoma, melanoma, sarcoma, and bone marrow transplant.
Sharon stumbled upon yoga more than 10 years ago in a “try it, you might like it” moment that changed her life. Practicing yoga consistently over the years as a working wife and mom has been transformative for her physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, and inspired the desire to teach yoga to others in her care, community, and beyond.
In addition to her Yoga Teacher Certifications, she has completed a 200 hour certification in Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga, which focuses on keeping the body and mind in balance with daily routines and dietary modifications specific to the individual.
Her aim is to make this ancient healing practice of yoga, with its deep roots in South Asia and Africa, combined with equitable health care, more accessible to a larger demographic. Sharon places a special emphasis on providing these resources to marginalized communities, those who suffer from chronic health conditions, and those who tend to have few resources.
