<<< BACK TO OUR TEACHERS

Cher is our prenatal and mom + baby yoga teacher. She is also the founder of Dragonfly Maternity, consignment prenatal and nursing clothing. She is passionate about supporting moms and families,


Cher's journey into the practice of yoga started in high school, and by 2007 it had become part of her weekly routine. Cher's practice evolved in 2008 when she became pregnant with her first son -- she says she discovered a deeper connection with her baby on the mat. It also better prepared her for labour and delivery. 

 

Cher has completed her 200-hr Yoga Teacher Training, 85-hr Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Training, 50-hr Kids Yoga Training and 30-hr Yin Yoga Training; and is enrolled in a Chakra Healing course, continually deepening her practice. Cher brings a philosophical element to her guided sessions, as she truly believes yoga unites us on a level that surpasses the physical sense. Cher is passionate about contributing to the Heart + Mind Yoga community surrounded by the positive energy of other yoga teachers and practitioners.

After having kids of my own, I realized a few things about motherhood: how expensive it is to build one's maternity wardrobe for a short period of time; how isolating life can be as a new mom through the ups & downs of caring for a newborn; and how important community and fitness are for moms during this time in their life.
