Balancing Art's Impact

"Yoga was always something I had wanted to try, but was intimidated by. From the beginning, Sheri offered a calm, welcoming environment. I've only been practicing for a short time, but have found yoga to be a fun, therapeutic, confidence-building and stress relieving experience."​

Molly Houben​

"Sheri does an amazing job with teaching yoga. She made me feel comfortable and at-ease from the first moment of the first session. She is patient, kind, respectful and a pleasure to learn from. As a first-time yoga student, I have quickly developed a love of this practice, which I plan to continue forever. Sheri is a gift!"​
