Cheryl completed her 200- hour Yoga training with Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, Lenox, MA, and, her 500- hour advanced training with Sacred Rivers, in East Hartford, CT. On July 1, 2017, she was recognized as an IAYT Certified Yoga Therapist. Knowledge imparts the understanding there is more to learn. Wisdom is a life- long journey on a path to release ego- consciousness, develop perception and attain enlightenment. Known for her authentic, non- judgmental instructional style, based on the Kripalu "Yoga of inquiry, compassion- centered" philosophy, she guides a practice that is built between the body, mind and spirit. Her practice has evolved throughout the years, grown stronger with life's experiences, as she continues her self- inquiry to develop a deeper consciousness, both on and off the mat. Yoga inspires her to live each moment more mindfully, to use each of her senses, equally. Cheryl is a life- long student of Kriya (movement), Prana (breath) and Karma Yoga(service) and continues her education with workshops and advanced training from various disciplines. She is deeply grateful for the loving wisdom imparted to her through both her teachers and students. As an instructor, she seeks to help others thrive in life by nurturing body, mind and soul with yoga, quieting the senses so to diminish the fluctuations of our mind. Cheryl incorporates all 3 practices: Pratyahara, asanas, and pranayama, designed to attend to the inner world of consciousness. With creative sequencing, a spirit of playfulness and a dose of inspiration students begin to slow down, discover shades of revelations to the deeper meaning of self. The surface self is deconstructed with the intention to tap into the authentic self. Her hope is students will discover lightness, freedom, an internal and external release so when they step off their mat, they are refreshed, nourished and balanced, with a sense of peace, joy and interconnectedness."
