With Cheryl’s passion and focus for well-being, she started her yogic journey back in 1992 when she moved to Vancouver BC to pursue a more holistic lifestyle. Cheryl came from a physical way of life after 25 years of martial arts. In search for balance in the daily stresses of life, and managing chronic pain from many injuries, she discovered mediation and energetic awareness trainings. The melding of these two disciplines created a more balanced mind body approach. With the internal balance & focus that she acquired through karate her transition to Hatha yoga was a natural progression that led to her into incorporating yoga into her daily life. Just as Karate was a way of life for Cheryl then so became yoga…After years of study, and teaching her martial students, Cheryl fully realized her ambitions to become a yoga instructor when she went & embarked in an intensive yoga training at the ashram Anand Praksh located in Rishikesh, India.
Cheryl proudly obtained her 200 hour Hatha & prenatal yoga teacher certification. After being bitten by the yoga bug Cheryl realized the next step in her yogic journey to healing was to obtain her 500 hour certification in Yoga Therapy at Heaven on Earth Yoga Institute & Integrated Health & Yoga Therapy in Ontario. Other teacher trainings include, Yin, Hot, Restorative, Yoga therapy, Chronic Pain Care Management, RAD roller & Thai Yoga Massage.
Cheryl holds regularly scheduled classes, in Hatha, yin, restorative yoga, yoga therapeutics’, workshops and retreats abroad.
