Sherri’s yoga journey began only to stop and start again a few times. She started with solely appreciating the physical practice of the asanas at the gym and a short stretch of Bikram, but was never quite hooked. It wasn’t until she found her way to studios and teachers who she was inspired by, with the way they held space in their classes and filtered in messages of connection, discovery and acceptance of self with patience and compassion. Sherri was launched into these spaces with these teachers during a time in her life when she felt weighed down by struggles.
The spiritual messages of yoga became something she clung to as she would breathe through each pose, each moment. Then she started really letting them sink in, really feeling them and harnessing them within her practice. These moments of centering, discovery, surrender, acceptance and love, as she moved through the poses like a dance of sweat, meditation, breath and empowerment.
She began seeing it carry over into my day to day life. She began to notice that she felt as though she was standing taller. More open, more with breath. More with love and belief. Less with fear and doubt. It was a bit of an awakening to discover that she didn’t have to “wait” until she had everything figured out or worked out, to honor and love the light within that was already there and always has been.
“Yoga brings me back to that place over and over. Brings me back to my center, back to myself.”
Sherri knows that yoga takes a lot of scattered thoughts and distractions and begins to bring everything to one sacred spot, one breath, one moment… One mat and one home within herself that she’s learning to fill with love and appreciation. It’s a continuous journey and practice for her.
“I return to my mat to come back to this center over and over again. Building upon it each time. Forever a student myself.”
In Sherri’s classes she strives to provide a space for students to explore, discover and connect to their own inner light, self love and empowerment.
“I am deeply humbled and honored to step into this space and share this practice with you. Let’s move through it together finding both connection within and with this amazing yoga community...and maybe drop a few dope dance beats while we are at it!”
