Meditation


This class is taught by:

Cheryl King

Cheryl King began practicing yoga and meditation while studying World Religions in college. Upon graduation she traveled to Thailand seeking cultural immersion in the epicenter of Theravada Buddhism. Self-exploration took a backseat to career and family over the next two decades, but a health crisis brought her to a state of utter depletion by age 43. One Friday night in 2007, desperate for help, she tried Chris Green’s Restorative yoga class at DYC seeking relief, and she found it. The Dallas Yoga Center provided the solace and support, the hope and strength to sustain her through this next phase of her life’s journey.
 

In time, yoga and meditation infused all aspects of her life, and eventually led to a career change—after twenty years of teaching British Literature, she retired from academia and currently teaches yoga and meditation full time.

 

Cheryl brings an interdisciplinary approach to her students, combining mindfulness and movement to restore body / mind unity, invite self-discovery, and deepen self-compassion.

 

Drawing inspiration from mentors as diverse as Julliard dance instructor Irene Dowd and MBSR pioneer Jon Kabat Zinn, Cheryl’s approach includes utilizing breath, imagination, and curiosity to encourage a moment-to-moment experience of connection to self and others. Through anatomical alignment and mindful movement, her yoga and meditation practice promotes a radiantly healthy body-mind-spirit.
