She is an E-RYT 200 and has studied extensively with Ana Forrest and Erich Schiffman. She's been teaching group and private yoga classes for 18 years. Cheryl's classes are compassionate, strong, breath and alignment based, to create a meaningful experience where wisdom, growth, and healing unfold over time. She's passionate about assisting students to use asana as a mindful movement practice, cultivating flexibility and strength as well as developing deep listening's skills, paying attention to the body and breath for what is needed in the moment. Cheryl incorporates her understanding of the mind and behavior into her classes, encouraging her students to break free of their rigid, self defeating patterns and habits making room inside to heal physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. She is skilled at working with all ages, levels, and shape of practitioner and has expertise in working asana for injuries, chronic pain, and the 'changing body'. With intelligent asana practice she helps students release and relieve pain patterns to feel open, stronger, healthier.
