About Me

My Way Of Health & Life

I embrace Yoga in everything I do – join me on this journey.

Cheryl Ellis

I am a Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Medicine and a YM Therapeutic Specialist. I started practicing yoga almost 20 years ago, which eventually blossomed into a passion for teaching.


After years of dedicated practice, I completed Zenways Yoga Teacher’s Training under Zen master Daizan Skinner. I continued to train in Yin Yoga with Teachers Norman Blair and Sarah Lo, and have since completed my 300hr Senior Training with Yoga Medicine, covering modules in Orthopaedic Injury (Hip, Spine and Shoulder), Myofascial Release, Women’s Health, Mental Health, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Meditation.


I am passionate about using yoga as a form of medicine for the mind, body and spirit. Inspired to support others to achieve healthier, stronger bodies and calmer minds, I love to share the practice and the numerous benefits it can bring to peoples lives and well-being.

What My Clients Say About Me

Absolutely brilliant, would highly recommend. Cheryl is a brilliant teacher, we have previous experience with her and was very pleased to find she was doing a class local to us. Would highly recommend.
Sandra Shurmer
Such a lovely calming class and very nice to get together afterwards for a coffee. I find this class truly amazing, Cheryl certainly knows her thing but is so kind and always offers a lesser pose should you need it. It’s never the same from one week to the next and I also find it quite therapeutic. Her Yin class at the retreat in the New Forest last week was also a really nice class, like I say so very friendly. Cheryl is approachable too and if you have any issues she can always help with something.
Sue Hall
Cheryl explained everything well, the class was in a beautiful place, felt at a good level with different level options. All moves & postures were very clearly explained, and various levels were offered so suitable for people with varying needs. Cheryl the instructor is very welcoming & friendly.
