Yoga became a passion for Cheryl in the early 90’s and proved to be life changing and so very enriching. She became certified in 1997 and promptly began sharing the practice as her understanding of the ancient teachings were shared with her. Her specialty has always been therapeutic yoga, helping others find their way to wellness and continuing on that path. Along with a 2.5 year Yoga Teacher training program she also studied general anatomy and physiology and continues to upgrade in both areas as she says, “There is always new information to build upon. One could not possibly absorb the many teachings and variations of ‘True Yoga – Union of Body Breath and Mind’ in one lifetime but I continue to try”.
She holds certification from internationally acknowledged SOYA – South Okanagan Yoga Academy, IYTA – International Yoga Teachers Association, E-RYT500 – Yoga Alliance of North America as a Teacher of Teachers, YABC – Yoga Association of BC and Anatomy for Healers in Canada as well as various other shorter intense programs.
To this day, over 20 years later, yoga is her passion and sharing it her great pleasure.
