consistently inspired by Sherris ability to continually
demonstrate the asanas and their fullest spectrum of possibilities
in a way that seems new and fresh every time. To me, this is one
clue into the huge popularity of Bapiste Power of Yoga which attracts
both beginners and advanced students to the same class. Each posture
often includes a sweetly delivered golden nugget of information.
This spiritual or anatomical component not only informs the student
but assures them that their yoga practice is part of an expanded
system. The class is challenging in part due to the breath work
that she encourages bringing new depth to each practice. She is
relentless in supporting each student to BREATHE through clear instruction
interspersed with inspiring quotes from great masters. Somehow in
a class edge to edge with sticky mats, she is able to connect with
each and every student on some level. To me, thats Yoga.

What a wonderful
retreat. I very much enjoyed working with and seeing you work
with your students. You are such a lovely embodiment of all that
Yoga is. You are energetic, enthusiastic, joyful, relational, spiritual,
full of life and vitality, love what you are doing and bring that
infectiousness to your students. How could they resist the power
of what Yoga is when seen through your eyes. Thank you for allowing
me the gift to be with you in action.

enjoy the new found spirit yoga has given me, for the very first
time in my life I have connected with something that is athletic,
involving my body and health and I have greatly benefited in so
many ways. It has been an opening in my heart, my mind, and my
body. The last year was one of tremendous change for me. I found
you and your classes and that was my saving grace. I embraced it
immediately ! I had found something new, I was in love with it.
I am ready to focus on me and my life and what makes me happy. Yoga
makes me happy, your yoga makes me feel alive and awake. I want
to make the commitment to the training you are offering. I want
to be a part of this dynamic group of people and I want to connect
with more of them this year. Your encouragement and devotion is
an inspiration and I want to keep that as a part of my life as it
is a positive and beautiful complement to everything else I have
to be thankful for".
your class was so incredible today, class was FABULOUS. I
just wanted to write and tell you because I didn't get a chance
after. I feel so lucky and grateful to have your classes in my life
!! Being in your class today I realize how WONDERFUL they are and
how good they are for my life. Thank you, thank you- I feel
1000 times more grateful even than this can express!! Thank you
Sherri, you're the best.
Aloha nui loa,
"I had never tried a yoga class that I liked before Sherri's
class at the Nautilus of Marin. I'm originally from New York, and
when I moved out to California my daily exercise routine halted and
I put on some weight. Between Sherri's excellent classes, changing
my diet, and a very bad winter chest cold, I have lost almost 15 pounds
and am in better shape than I have been in quite a while. While a
chest cold is not recommended, Sherri's classes are. It's a safe,
non-judgmental and invigorating workout that boosts my self-esteem
and improves my body. It's the best of both worlds with a truly

you, has carried into my classes adding so much to my teaching.
Thank you again for your incredible energy and joy in teaching.
It is an inspiration to learn under someone who truly has the spirit
and love of the practice shining all around them. I look forward
to more classes and retreats with you.
Sherri's gentle and unconditional giving of her heart, you will
be opened up, fed and nourished with her abundance of yoga knowledge,
wisdom and love. Sherri is truly a catalyst for those that want
to further their understanding of the mind/body connection through
the experience of yoga. What I have learned from Sherri is both
infinite and priceless and will carry with me for the rest of

I remember an
inspiring class you gave two summers ago. I believe that you had
just lost your father, and you read a wonderful passage. Well, it
turned out that, that very day was the last time I saw my own father.
I will always remember that gift you gave us. Your classes are
memorable and exceptional. I hope to see you soon.

I don't know
where to begin to thank you for the incredible experience at the
Green Gulch Yoga Retreat. It was just what I needed and everything
I hoped for. When I went to Vegas to the spa convention, so many
of my friends told me how beautiful and calm I looked-what was different
about me? Well, with all the stress I am under now, it is only the
miracle of your yoga retreat that could prompt those feelings.........thank
so much for the weekend at Green Gulch. I feel so grateful that
I could be a part of it. I came with a heavy, raw heart. And then
the yoga, everything returning again-----inside my body. Breathing
What a mystery! Ping-the bell sounds. What a deep joy, watching,
listening, feeling, BEING. That inspiration is still with me---and
Im happy to say it feels deeper and stronger with each returning
visit and retreat. A co-worker remarked that I looked different
when I returned. She said, More yoga weekends! I
in Baptiste Yoga with you has been only a short time but has been
life changing. I have been in the company of the yoga practice
for 25 yrs. but this is the 1st time I have made a commitment to
the practice and attribute my commitment to your teaching. You are
an inspiring teacher. Thank you for bring the Baptiste Yoga practice
to us and sharing your knowledge of yoga with us. Many blessings

It was a
great retreat and I enjoyed almost every minute of it........the
pain in my body showed me how much I needed to be there. It met
all my needs and had been just what I was looking for. Thanks for
the great weekend. I hope to do it again.
I met you Tues.
at the Marin Bay Club. When I told you I loved your class, I
did not know your history. It was truly the best class I've
ever taken. I would also like to get your video. Thanks so much.
your video while you were away on retreat and vacation. I am so
grateful to have it to bring with me on vacation. I have to
let you know that while you were away I had the opportunity to practice
with other teachers and no one compares to the way that you teach
yoga. Everyone that taught was good in their own way but no one
was as thorough as you are in their instruction of how to do yoga.
This opportunity has shown me how blessed we are to have you as
a teacher. Thank you for making this video and for sharing your
knowledge of the yoga practice with us. Many blessings to you!
