Your Teacher Cheryl Farthing
I was inspired to train as a yoga teacher after experiencing the profound effect it had on my health. It supported me through two "mature" pregnancies and continues to help me balance life with children and stay healthy with a rare auto-immune condition.
The precision and versatility of Iyengar yoga drew me towards its more detailed approach. I am a fully certified teacher, (intermediate level 2) but still consider myself a perpetual learner, and regularly attend workshops with senior teachers from around the world and have done 3 intensives with Geeta Iyengar the last one in India. My passion and joy for the inward journey of yoga is what motivated me to teach, and keep trying to find clarity of mind and equilibrium.
I am also a practitioner of Yoga For The Special Child, having trained with its founder internationally renowned teacher, Sonia Sumar. I enjoy working with children with disabilities on a one to one basis and teach an adults adapted yoga class in AUT's physiotherapy department.
My meditation practice and teaching draws on Buddhism, and mindfulness techniques and is profoundly influenced by the work of Dr. Richard Miller founder of the Integrative Restoration Institute. I am an certified iRest level 2 teacher. https://www.irest.us. Also, a Momentum trained life coach (International Coach Federation aligned).
