Email me here if you’d like to discuss booking for late 2018 and into 2019.
I’d love to offer you and your community unique and useful embodied experiences.
I teach Franklin Method, Experiential Anatomy + Biomechanics, Bartenieff/Hackney patterns of connectivity, embodied systems and developmental patterns, and Yoga Therapy workshops and trainings. I particularly love teaching teachers!
When I offer continuing education experiences for yoga, fitness and movement professionals, we dive into grounded, embodied practice – learning by experiencing – not just theory.
Mentoring dance students and providing them exposure to embodied somatic practices at the undergraduate level is another passion of mine.
Here are kind words from workshop participants – they’d know best!
“Cheri has a wonderful way of engaging with groups of people and just one on one. She really communicates her information in a way that makes it accessible. I really enjoyed the one workshop that I did with her and watching the Franklin Method videos that she’s made. They really help to bring awareness to my body. I’ve also had the pleasure of having a consultation with Cheri and I’m very excited to continue working with her one on one.” Ruth Silva, Yoga teacher, Minnesota
“One of the best things I’ve received from your teachings of the Franklin Method, Cheri, is that the power for healthy, happy movement lies within me – I just need a little help to tap into the resources that already exist inside. What a gift that is!” Ellen Dovre, physical therapist and yoga teacher
“I practice bodywork professionally and teach tai chi, and I still learned a lot from attending a group workshop! Cheri blends her formidable interdisciplinary knowledge with a high degree of physical skill. Her friendly, challenging attitude helps her students go deeper into their own experience, and they learn how to move with more power, ease and poise. This represents the next level in healing arts: using awareness and the mind-body connection to bring health from within.” Chris Hayden, Rolfer/Bodyworker, Tai Chi teacher
“During your workshops in St, Paul, MN, a lot of the information was not new to me, but the visual and experiential way that you taught the anatomy of the pelvis made a couple of things click for me in a way that they never had before.
Through practicing the chair pose I found new awareness of my sit bones and how they move. I have some hip and prolapse issues that I’m studying right now, and I wonder if this ‘bone rhythm’ will contribute to my healing. Feeling the actual movement of the bones in my pelvis was the most useful part of my workshop experience. Oh, and the images during the exercises on the peanut and balls. I felt a totally different recruitment of my muscles!”
Amber Moesch, yoga teacher from La Crosse, WI
“Thank you so much for the wonderful workshops. The most important thing I learned was to have so much more body awareness. I loved when we talked about using the Franklin Method balls underneath the sacrum in supported bridge, instead of using a yoga block. I noticed a difference in my lower body. I often have too much compression in the lower spine when I use the block. So now I will consider something softer.
I really enjoyed the workshops and it left me wanting to learn more! Dancing is also my background and so I am interested in learning more about The Franklin Method and your work. Could you also send me information about your online running program? Thanks again, Cheri!” Ruth Silva, Zumba and Yoga teacher from St Paul, MN
“I feel much more at home with my spine – it has become a living, fluid center. I’m delighted…it’s been very useful to be taught dynamic alignment.” Helaine
