Cheri grew up in Southern CA but spent the ages 14 - 21 in Vancouver WA & Portland OR. She lived on 15 acres and cared for the family horses, cherry trees, blackberry bushes, etc. Upon returning from the NW, she settled in Carlsbad, where she met her love and husband of 18 years. At the same time she discovered yoga in Encinitas.
Cheri was always achievement driven. She put herself through College and built a successful career in the Corporate world. As she built her career and family, she fell further away from her yoga practice. Without the benefits of yoga, she grew more disconnected with her true self. She could feel in her heart she had a bigger purpose. But the financial security from the Corporate world supported her family. At that time she didn’t have the vision or courage to seek a new way. It took a rock bottom of physical illness and mental pain for her to finally “let go of the wheel” and she began her spiritual journey and reconnected with her Yoga practice. The journey of Yoga Teacher Training was one piece of the puzzle that healed her physically, mentally and spiritually.
Now Cheri practices and shares the many tools of self care, yoga and meditation being key. As a Yoga Teacher she is re-invigorated by the beauty in each soul and has a sincere desire to help others live their best and fullest lives. Her classes always go deep into the mind, body, breath connection and have a healing/learning thread to them. She has her 200RYT certification at HYHY and teaches V1 at HYHY.
