Hero's pose, or Virasana, is a common seated posture that may be difficult to sit in comfortably. It requires complete flexion of the knee as well as plantar flexion of the ankle. We will spend plenty of time stretching the hamstrings and quads as well as warming up the knee and ankle joints so that Virasana can become a joy rather than a chore.

I attend Cheryl's class regularly and feel that my practice has improved immensely over the past few years due to her expert coaching. Her teaching style is clear and compassionate and her previous experience in teaching adults is evident in her organized approach and easy to understand instructions. I also appreciate that Cheryl not only teaches us about how to correctly position ourselves, but also touches on many aspects of yoga philosophy, which in turn has deepened my personal practice and heightened my awareness of the connection between mind and body, breath and relaxation.
