Yoga For Real’s Cheri Harvey radiates lighthearted humor and a positive attitude as she guides students toward inner peace, spiritual epiphanies, and supportive friendships with fellow yogis. Harvey draws upon her extensive training to lead Hatha and Kundalini classes filled with classic poses, deep-breathing exercises, and meditation techniques. To promote safe exercise, she emphasizes proper alignment frequently—during stretches, standing poses, sun salutations, and whenever students need to parallel park—and happily modifies movements to suit each student's strength and flexibility.
Intent on fueling students’ personal growth, Harvey supplements her workouts with workshops on topics such as controlling clutter and setting boundaries with friends and family, as well as couples yoga. She also leads private sessions geared toward helping trainees reach goals such as building home-based yoga practices or shaking up future business meetings with unexplained breathing demonstrations.
