As the mother of four active, dyamic young girls, Sherry found her center, her peace and her increased ability to deal with the needs of this busy family, including her own needs, in the practice of yoga. With her certification in Yoga Dharma, her added training in Grounded Kids Yoga and her current study of Anatomy and Therapeutic Training, she enthusiastically teaches students both the physicality and the philosophy of Yoga. Her early educational background in theater and drama and her classroom teaching experience increase her ability to present Yoga in an interesting and sound way. Sherry offers careful explanations and demonstrations to beginners, but she also challenges advanced students to reach their potential. All of Sherry’s classes are imbued with a playful happiness, inspired by her work with children. Come and learn with her!
Sherry Fahs instructs the following:
Vinyasa Flow (Level 1)
Level 1 moves through physical postures at a very moderate pace, usually starting with a sun salution series. Level 1 offers verbal instruction in alignment during the flow, but less than you will find in Beginner Basics, and more than you will find in Mixed Level. Often included is chanting, pranayama (breathing exercises), yoga philosophy and meditation. All levels of practitioner are welcome at Level 1 classes, including Beginners, although those very new to yoga should bring an understanding that the class will be moving and flowing.
WARM Vinyasa Flow (Mixed Level)
A Vinyasa Yoga class performed at a WARM temperature (90+ degrees) and taught at a regular Mixed Level pace. A prior yoga practice and knowledge of basic postures is assumed as the class moves quite vigorously. The only difference between a HOT Flow class and this one is temperature. Come prepared to explore physical postures, traditional yogic chanting, breathwork and philosophy. Bring a non skid towel for your mat, hydrate well prior to class and bring water. We recommend that true beginners should start in Beginner Basics (regular temperature) before moving into WARM or HOT classes.
Vinyasa Flow (Mixed Level)
Connect movement with breath "vinyasa" as the teacher guides you through traditional yoga asana postures sequenced into a "flow". Against a backdrop of great music, move through physical postures, usually starting with a sun salution series. Often included is chanting, pranayama (breathing exercises), yoga philosophy and meditation. All levels of practitioner are welcome at Mixed Level classes, although some knowledge of basic postures is recommended and those new to yoga should bring an open mind and an understanding that class will likely move at a rigorous pace.
