Cher Joy

About The Teacher

A life full of wild adventures and many injuries lead Cher to the physical practice of Yoga in 2007. After many doctors and healers and therapists tried to “fix” her spine, knees, and shoulders… the practice of yoga quickly became a self-healing path which lead her to an intimate connection with her body, allowing freedom from physical pain, and opened her mind to understand the interconnectedness of everything and the ever-present bliss inside. After her first year of private one-to-one classes on Maui with Ted Surman, student of Desikichar, she was moved to dedicate her life to continuous study and sharing of this ancient tradition. Cher completed various yoga teacher trainings around the Hawaiian Islands ,on a quest to understand the many different “styles” of yoga being offered.  She found her teachers at Maya Yoga on Maui, HI where she completed a 500-hr teacher training course. Here she developed through practice and application, an ability to “see and understand bodies” and here she realized the power of vibration (chanting). Cher spent the last few years traveling, studying, and teaching Yoga in Hawaii, India, Indonesia, Thailand, China, Peru, Guatemala, and Mexico. After 10 years of dedication to sharing the teachings of Yoga around the globe, she felt a strong need to find a place to ground and be still while diving deeper into her purpose, continuing to study and share, and create space for others to come to and experience the magic of “BEing”. That’s when she found Kura Kura. Upon arriving at Kura Kura Cher had an instant feeling that she had arrived in the right place at the right time. Soon after, she met Geri and a partnership/ new adventure of life began…
