Becoming embodied means healing on all levels. I can help.
I’d love to give you the vision, first, that health isn’t simply the absence of illness, injury and pain.
True Healing includes and beckons us into greater vitality, joy, and purpose in our lives, too. I teach from within a paradigm of health and happiness being possible for all of us, restoring us to the vibrant, meaningful lives we’re all created to experience.
I believe physical healing is never purely on the physical plane.
It must encompass all layers of the individual’s existence – their mind must understand the changes happening, their emotions must be acknowledged tenderly and allowed to speak. The spirit must be honored, held, rebirthed into the new physical experience in the body as a new ‘self’.
We continually update our identity, our consciousness, through any season of practice or non-practice. Whether consciously or unconsciously, we choose our path.
In yoga and yoga therapy, we use the 5 koshas as a model for this return to wholeness through healing practices.
When we experience pain in the body, when strong emotions arise, when old stories surface, may we allow ourselves to observe objectively – welcome them as visitors with wisdom in hand. Perhaps we just need to see, hear and feel our full experience in this body first, in order to transform it.
“What can we learn from this current feeling? How can this experience teach me?” we can ask.
I help you translate your body’s messages, relearn how to move with ease and flow, gain strength…we gradually help you return to greater peace and health.
May we receive all of ourselves as we were, as we are, as we are becoming.
May we practice in the fullness of our embodied experience and see the fruits of our awareness.
May we be content with and through it all.
Even in the dark nights or long days – trusting the impermanence of these seasons, watching as they change. Hoping and truly seeing the light of dawn as it returns.
From a current client:
“I’ve had constant nerve and muscle pain. I’m supposed to be moving as much as possible but often find if I try to move I do too much and the result is a migraine and even worse nerve and muscle pain. So, learning to move correctly and with the right frame of mind sounded like the next step in my healing journey.
I found our consult very relieving because someone understood me and was willing to work with me to help me change and heal. This process is very difficult because exposing what I’m going through brings up a lot of issues of self-esteem, the abuse, and all of the physical challenges I’m facing. It altogether is so much, that it can be very difficult to face.
Our first session was so great! I realized that once I got over my nervousness that I can do a lot more that I thought, and that my mind is super powerful. And that the movement doesn’t have to be big to have a big impact.
I felt hopeful for the first time in a long time.” – Kari

I was dealing with a 10 year old hockey injury as well as the deep changes that accompany childbirth. Together, she helped me discover a new way of looking at myself and approaching my commitment to health and fitness — rather than focusing on what I couldn’t do, I started focusing on what I could do! I gained strength, confidence and integrity in my physical practice! I began a journey of loving my time within my body. ”

“One of the first things I learned about Cheri is that when I’m talking, she’s listening and is focused on me and only me. She responds thoughtfully and in a way that really rings true to me where I find her words speaking to me throughout the day when I need it most.
What I find most of all, is that she’s become not only my coach, but a true friend and confidant that has taught me to take care of myself because I am worthy of my own time, attention and love.”
