Writer | Yogi | Consultant
Hi, I am Sharman Ghio, pronounced similarly to the “Karmann Ghia” Volkswagen.
At my core I am a non-conformist who thrives in nature and geeks out on everything “well-being”, including challenging my physical and mental capacities.
Professionally I transform marketing departments from cost centers to revenue drivers and my favorite aspect of this work is the collaboration with leadership, creative, design, and development.
My career calling is the integration of my marketing knowledge and well-being experiences into a unique skillset to guide companies and individuals in identifying their vision, values, and growth objectives.
I’ve lived in New York City, Los Angeles, and Phoenix, but Seattle will always be my true home.
I have a killer knack for naming 1980’s song titles and artists in five seconds or less.
I would love to connect and learn how we could work and grow together. You can reach me at well-being at sharmanghio dot com – send me a note and I will get back to you as soon as I finish my hike.

Every day for the past ten years I have thought about how I can unify my life experience as an artist, teacher, yogi, explorer, marketer, and entrepreneur to help people craft their unique quality of life. Ideas swirl in my head like an unsolved puzzle, and now, since returning from my Camino de Santiago pilgrimage, the puzzle pieces are forming into a clear vision.
This vision is to systematize my 20-year self-awareness journey so that people can apply the lessons and practices to their own lives and unlock their inner wisdom, and just maybe shorten the time span between awareness, embodiment, and even enlightenment. This work is my purpose and I call it:
From awareness to embodiment: Unlocking inner wisdom to live in our full potential and power.
In the fall of 2022, I embarked on a drive-about to explore and live around the western U.S. for six months. The adventure was a natural evolution for the seeker in me and for the personal journey I have been on for the past several years.
What began as a quest for work I love has evolved into an exploration for crafting a life that is fulfilling, meaningful and lived consciously. During the road trip I wrote about my experiences, which were some of my most trying and challenging times and culminated in a decision to walk 450 miles in 30 days on a Camino de Santiago pilgrimage.
In 2018 I set out to find work I love. I quit a good job and took a leap of faith towards finding work that was fulfilling, inspiring, and fueled by innovation.
I’ve learned a lot since then while making progress towards my True North and I continue to strive towards helping myself and others achieve the following:
- Being seen and heard at work and in life for who you truly are.
- Belonging and contributing to something bigger than yourself.
- Prioritizing self care and feeling good.
I am a student of human nature and spend much of my free time studying the connection between people, relationships and work. With yoga philosophy and mindfulness as my foundation, I practice what I learn and then share my observations with others so that we can learn how to thrive wholeheartedly in our lives, including at work.
Come along on the journey. You may just find what you are looking for, and possibly even far more than you imagined.
