Erich led a beautiful class with a pretty perfect balance of intensity and stillness/focus. The outside rooftop patio was dreamy in the early evening with a warm breeze. No better way to start my wkend! And Erich’s use of the accordian for beginning and ending class is spot on. Our Ommms sounded so deep and relaxing :). Will definitely come back for this class!
Cheryl Martin, RYT 200 Karuna graduate, Reiki Master, and herbalism student, is a native to the Harrisonburg area. It was while attending Manchester University that she was first introduced to yoga and meditation and personally experienced what a profound impact yoga had on every aspect of her life. From navigating every day stress, to deep physical and emotional healing. In the 20 years she has been a yoga and meditation student, she’s come to believe that the practice of getting on our mats, is the practice of coming home to ourselves.
As a former social worker, Cheryl brings a special awareness to addressing and working with trauma and finding ways to gently find healing through the nervous system. In each session, whether she’s teaching a yoga class, leading a meditation session, or providing energy healing, Cheryl’s desire is to create a safe and nurturing environment where everyone can discover ways to be more compassionate with themselves.
Off the mat, Cheryl is currently a second-year herbalism student. She’s passionate about botany, homesteading, hiking, camping, cooking, traveling the world with the love of her life, and spending as much time as she can with her loved ones.
