What Teachers Have to Say
I have been a licensed massage therapist since 2010 (with extensive training in oncology massage) and graduated a 200hr YTT in 2020. Because of my oncology background, I briefly considered not taking Cheryl's "Healing Yoga for Cancer" training and I am so glad I ignored that initial instinct! The education I have received through Cheryl has been invaluable. She is so organized, thorough and provides a teaching format that you can adapt to the many, many side effects of cancer treatment. In taking this training I KNOW I can provide safe, effective and client centered yoga without any self-doubt or feelings of imposter syndrome. She gave me the confidence I didn't even know I needed! Thanks Cheryl! - Linda McGill, Bellevue, WA, 2022
Very happy and grateful for the opportunity to take this course, Cheryl is a great teacher with an incredible knowledge and ability to explain clearly. This course is a valuable tool that will allow us to help many people in the cancer process.! - Guadalupe Solano Bianco, Costa Rica, 2022
As a teacher, I have studied under Cheryl and I can't recommend her highly enough. I wish we'd had someone like Cheryl in our lives when my husband was in treatment for cancer, she is so knowledgeable and compassionate. If you are in treatment, recovery or have any kind of limitation and think you can't do yoga, she is the teacher for you! - Tiffany Cole Candiotti, Apex, NC, 2020.
Cheryl is a teacher's teacher as well as for new students. Her knowledge and experience in working with cancer patients is presented with such expertise and I might add warmth, I felt so much gratitude. Her work leaves you with a wealth of practices presented in a organized and thoughtful manner. I have taken other nationally well known courses but preferred Cheryl's philosophy more. I have worked with a few private students who had developed breast cancer during the course of our time together I used many of the techniques, practices,and philosophies I have learned thru Cheryl's work. She is a gem with the energy of a lioness. - Lynne Dreyer, Arlington, VA, 2020
12 hours with Cheryl is almost equivalent to a 200 teacher training, with Cheryl wearing all the hats! She is endlessly knowledgeable and experienced with all of the information she is presenting. She is an engaging, credible, professional and fun presenter/person. Her talents are endless! This course was thorough, brimming with information and the handouts were extremely comprehensive. Thank you Cheryl!!! - Sallie Moran, Walnut Creek, CA, 2018
The Subtle Practices weekend was full of valuable information, all of which I was able to immediately incorporate into my classes and with private students. This training definitely up-leveled my understanding and offerings as a teacher. - Tiffany C, Raleigh, 2018
I recently attended Cheryl’s Yoga for Cancer and I definitely impressed by her knowledge on the subject and the way she presented the information. I could tell she had put a lot of work and research into her training. I really believe that everyone could benefit from this course. Cancer is so prevalent and yet we know so little about it. Definitely an eye opener, Thank you Cheryl Eugenia Doniz, 2022
I completed a weekend of training for yoga teachers with Cheryl. I've been teaching yoga for many years but one is never too old to learn. Cheryl is an exceptional teacher. She has changed some of the ways I teach. Regardless of which class a student takes, anyone would benefit from her instruction. -Alan Ennis, Durham, NC, 2020
The Course Cancer & Physical Practices as written and presented by Cheryl offers current viable, mindful and caring approach to instructors helping cancer patients. Cheryl’s educational course offers an understanding for the anatomy of cancer, how to boost the immune system, how to approach inflammation in the body with research protocol, stress reducing techniques and much, much more. As a cancer survivor and yoga instructor I learned exponentially... and now having a deeper understanding and appreciation for the dynamics of mindfully helping students and practitioners benefiting in the resultant joys of such practice applications for all. Thank you, kindly! - Brett Mehringer., Walnut Creek, CA, 2019
I truly appreciated your course and you personally as a trainer. You “know your stuff!” My students loved learning new poses and the tidbits I sprinkled through the class, as I find science based teaching effective and so did they! - Dawn Rudluff, Walnut Creek, CA 2019
We are so fortunate to have Cheryl’s deep wisdom and many years of experience offered as a practical course to be shared. I received so much out of this training- practices and information I share directly with the students at the Cancer Support Community in Santa Rosa. They’ve responded with so much positive feedback about how the yoga is helping them cope with their illness. This is my second training and I look forward to what Cheryl and PYC will offer in the future. - Sarah Jenness, Walnut Creek, CA, 2017
