Cherie is a trainee teacher currently studying under Alan Goode. She came to Iyengar yoga after completing her initial Yoga teacher training within another system. Cherie came away from this experience with questions about what it means to practise and teach yoga authentically and with the deepest of knowledge. These questions were inspired by readings she had engaged in by B.K.S. Iyengar. Yoga Mandir’s teacher training program is providing a place where she can explore these questions through a self-study on and off the mat.
Cherie has a Masters in Educational Policy from the University of Illinois and has been a teacher and leader in schools for 20 years. Throughout her career she always sought to connect students and teachers to themselves as learners and is discovering how her theoretical knowledge and experience in this area has an application to her as a teacher of Yoga.
