Yoga & Stretch

As a Yoga teacher I have trained in Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin Yoga, my  corrective exercise training was through the Australian Graduate School of Health and Sport Science, and The Chek Institute, Corrective High Performance Exercise Kineseology.

My classes are often a blend of yoga and corrective work. Strengthening areas of weakness and lengthening areas of tightness. 

My approach is simple. Create time for this. Breathe. Work. Rest. Let go.

I've had a lifetime interest and passion for nutrition and wellness. I have a certificate in Food as Medicine and Nutritional Farming and have done numerous courses in Fermentation.

My workshops are informative and FUN!
Often we start with some Yoga practise, break for a deeply nutritious raw food morning tea and chat, then get into the workshop. If it's an afternoon workshop, then the same applies, but we break for afternoon tea!

Mostly it's hands on with participants sampling  and taking home the fruits of their labour, I always seem to add in neat little extras, tips and treats. A totally immersive few hours in a stunning location.

Book in advance to secure your spot, limited numbers, six people per workshop.

"For me, Sheryl’s yoga classes are about connection, her connection with us and also the way she teaches enables us to connect our bodies, minds and spirits. Her classes can be both subtle and rigorous as she fluently reads what each person needs at that time. I personally enjoy the way Sheryl weaves her knowledge of physiology with grace and humility through her practice."

Lesley Burkett, Taumarunui

Lesley Workshops

"I always come away from Sheryl’s workshops with a warm sense of commeraderie and a lot more knowledge than I began them with! The setting is absolutely stunning and the learning well paced and fun. Her morning teas are to die for - who knew such exquisite food could also be so nourishing!"
