Cher Joy

About The Teacher

Cher is a traveling yogini, musician, and nature lover. She discovered the path of Yoga when she moved to the island of Maui, Hawaii in 2007. In 2015 Cher left Maui to spend a year in India to connect with the birthplace of her life’s work. She has been traveling since, fully embracing lightness and simplicity.

Cher’s speciality is bringing people together in ceremony to connect, sing, dance, heal and release. She believes breath is the main focus of yoga practice and she is passionate about utilizing yoga as a therapy for the body and mind. Cher has found that precise alignment in asana can heal many “problems” in the body structure, and can create a bridge to align thoughts, words, and actions. She believes every aspect of daily life is sacred.

Cher has traveled around the world and studied with great teachers from various yogic lineages. Some of her greatest influences include Mark Whitwell, Eddie Modestini, Nicki Doane, Shiva Rea, Arya ji, Ted Surman, Dr.Ringo, and of course: Nature. She learns daily by witnessing the rhythms of nature at work. Cher spent the last few years studying and collaborating with Mark Whitwell and has gained great inspiration in her daily life through his friendship and teachings.

Cher’s mission is now to share her experiences. “I believe Yoga is a path which helps us return to our natural state: Union [bliss]. It is my calling in this life to share my interpretation of these teachings, which have radically transformed my life.”
