Cheryl received her Pilates Mat Certification at Core Pilates NYC in March, 2015 and her Yoga certification in 2016. Cheryl spent 12 years as a Fashion Industry executive in New York City who recently moved back to the area. Because of the amazing impact Yoga and Pilates has had on her life she has made teaching her full time career. She has always been active in some sort of competitive athletic activity from gymnastics, softball and swimming as a child and throughout high-school to traditional training at gyms throughout her college years and twenties. She was introduced to Pilates & Yoga 5 years ago and was immediately captivated by the way they strengthened the muscles in her entire body, which other forms of exercises hadn’t as well as shifting her thinking and calmed the mind. She continues to be inspired by the way these fitness modalities realign, motivate, and improve all types of bodies and that they works for beginners to experts! Cheryl loves taking and teaching Yoga and Pilates, and the mind- body connections they create. Cheryl is also a Reiki Master.
