Cher Meli

About us

Cher has been studying and teaching yoga for almost 2 decades. She completed her first teacher training at the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara in 1999 under the mentoring of Erich Schiffmann and soon after was given the wonderful opportunity to assist Shiva Rea on many workshops, teacher trainings and intensives. She has since completed almost 1000hrs of teacher trainings in Vinyasa, Yoga Therapeutics, Pre & Post-Natal, Philosophy, Pranayama, and Meditation. Cher has been beyond fortunate to have had the opportunity to study in-depth with some of the best teachers in the world including a 500hr training through KYM/HYF with TKV Desikachar and and his stateside teachers Chase Bossart and Danielle Tarantola.

Cher’s current teaching style is best experienced through Yin yoga, vinyasa and especially meditation, guiding the student to connect with their deepest, truest self. She currently holds the position as Yoga Studio Manager at LifeTime Athletic in Garden City, NY, and is on the Yoga Teacher Training Faculty for LifePower Yoga. Cher leads workshops, lectures and retreats domestically and internationally focusing on a program that she’s developed over the years called “the Art of Self-FULLness”.
