I am a quadriplegic that had been seeking out a yoga class to meet my needs and found Sherry. She is internationally recognized for senior yoga – a population filled with disabilities and restrictions. Her online Chair Yoga Certification Program introduced me to other disabled class enrollees in England that are teaching yoga there.

Sherry is fun and approachable. For teachers interested in including people with disabilities and seniors in their class or for someone wanting to gain this knowledge and teach a chair yoga class, I strongly recommend this program.

I am glad to say that the Live Mentoring Program was an asset. Those sessions were definitely a plus to be able to ask questions and receive constructive critiques. Jane was such an informative mentor and personal teacher, the sessions had a relaxed atmosphere just like when you are teaching your chair yoga classes which I still love watching. Thank You for a wonderful experience.
