Cheryl Chaffee — Sarasota, FL
Cheryl Chaffee (ERYT-500) became dedicated to yoga in 2003 when she moved to the Sarasota, FL area and began taking classes with Betsey Downing and Jaye Martin at the Garden of the Heart Yoga Center. She began teaching in 2005, became a Certified Anusara Yoga Teacher in 2010, and bought Garden of the Heart Yoga in 2011. Cheryl currently loves studying Ashaya Yoga with Todd Norian. She has assisted Todd at Kripalu, and at his 200 hour Teacher Trainings in Lenox, MA and St. Michael’s, MD.
Cheryl loves the depth and intensity of Ashaya Yoga. She feels that the purpose of yoga is not to do the most difficult asanas, but is to go deeper into the understanding of the Self through the body, and connect to the Heart. Ashaya Yoga invites students to look at the places where yoga (and life) is challenging, and encourages everyone to connect to their own authenticity. Cheryl teaches authentically from her heart in order to help her students bring about their own transformation.
Join us for our Ashaya Yoga 200-Hour Teacher Training, Sarasota, FL, August 2019 — March 2020 at Garden of the Heart Yoga Center.
Janie Gunn – Fishers, IN
Janie began her yoga journey in 1996 by taking a yoga class at her church. It was like coming home to her own heart. Yoga was so transformative that she decided to align with this passion and share yoga with others as a teacher.
She took two teacher trainings in 2000-2002 and they gave her an overview of the various styles and philosophies of yoga. She opened Source Yoga Center in 2004, which serves the Fishers, Indiana area. When met Todd Norian in 2006, she felt like she found the teacher that was going to help her expand her skills both personally and professionally. She took his alignment-based teacher training in 2007 and went on to assist at another of his trainings.
She attended Todd’s workshop on the five elements and he invited her into his system of Ashaya Yoga. What a gift to study with such an authentic teacher who has poured his heart and soul into creating a system that has so much depth of body, mind and heart. She completed this teacher training in 2015 and is excited to share Ashaya yoga with others.
