Cher received her 500 Classical Pilates Certification from Whole Body Gallery in Los Angeles in 2003. Her instructors included Heidi Kung, a second generation instructor under Romana Kryzanowska and Gin Gavran, a second - generation teacher who studied under Michelle Larson and Eve Gentry.
After attending CU Boulder for a BA in Theatre and Dance and a minor in Spanish, Cher danced professionally in the Los Angles area for 10 years before moving back to her native Colorado. She opened her own studio, pH7, Health and Fitness in 2004 where she developed and directed a Pilates Teacher Training Program. In February of 2018 she sold both her locations to shift gears and move to Telluride. She has been studying Pilates and attending continuing education courses since 2004 with second -generation master teacher Cara Resser and graduated from Cara's Kathy Grant Heritage Training Program in 2013.
Cher has completed a pre and post-natal Pilates training at The Pilates Center and a pre and post natal Yoga training with Laura Wade Jaster. She also holds certifications in Power Yoga, Yoga Sculpt and Forrest Yoga, and continues to study and assist her Yoga teacher, Ana Forrest. When she's not teaching Pilates, she enjoys snowboarding, surfing and traveling. Another passion is leading international surf and Yoga retreats in Nicaragua, Mexico and Costa Rica. Cher is so excited to be in Telluride and to have found a home In Sequence!
