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.
