About this pro

Cheridan Smith is a lover of yoga, poetry, travel, sunsets and life. Cher received her Yoga Teacher training in India over the summer of 2018. She started with aerial yoga and now focuses on hatha, yin, and vinyasa flow, as well. This experience has made her passion and understanding of yoga extremely vivid. Having received the training in India, Cher feels more connected to the natural source and more at peace in her mind, body, and soul.
Rumi once said, “Let yourself become living poetry.” There is no better description of what yoga is to me. Yoga is living poetry: in movement, in flow, in feelings, in connecting yourself to every breath. Yoga is an art that works with each human based on their own needs. It is a practice I do to heal, to focus, to love, to breathe, and to live each moment in the present. Let the things that help us grow and the things we love be the things we do.
I am also an English, Spanish and ESL tutor. I taught for 3 years in these subjects but like the more one on one attention and growth.

I enjoy every aspect of what I do. Meeting people, helping them achieve their goals, watching people become the best versions of themselves and improving every single day to align the mind, body, and spirit. 

I love watching people learn and be passionate about expanding their abilities.

    Cher taught me English as a second language. My first language is Spanish and I had a really hard time learning in highschool at our International American School in Mexico but she made it super fun and never made me feel dumb. She is creative and pushed me to do my best.

    Cheridan is a super relaxed yet energetic teacher. She is able to bring calm and intense into the same lesson, which is just what yoga should be. I feel challenged but connected and also notice my growth and the distance I have yet to go. Cheridan helps me create a space where I feel like I am capable of everything and beyond. She is a great motivator and not at all judgmental towards anyone's appearance.

    Cher is an amazing human that lights up any room she walks into. Her aura is really positive and she knows how to help everyone in their own element.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I love working with people. Watching people grow and become the best versions of themselves is a passion of mine. I love being a part of the process of self growth, acceptance, and love. When I have a new student I find out their strengths and weaknesses. I ask them about their goals and what they are trying to accomplish. This is a complimentary assessment and session before we begin proper exercises for the body.

How did you get started teaching?

I am passionate about teaching in general, therefore I decided to become a teacher about an art that I am fervent about. This art/lifestyle/sport just so happens to be yoga. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I work with all types of students. No age limitations. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Always look to better yourself and when you practice yoga you are aligning your mind, body, and soul. There is no better art than the art of mastering thyself. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
