Cherishe Sookdeo was born in Trinidad & Tobago and raised in NYC. Coming from both a colorful, bold and spiritually rooted background; she didn’t follow her spiritual roots until after acquiring her B.A. in Comparative Literature. In 2014 she practiced the art of trust in the universe and it led her to complete a 200 HR (RYT) Hatha yoga training through the Sivananda Ashram in Bahamas. Since then her life has changed immensely for the better: learning how to live life fully and understanding that life is more than just a bunch of coincidences but a guided path.
Practicing Ahimsa (non-violence) is one of the main practices that keeps her on the yogic path. Allowing for unconditional love and the ability to always look for the good in others. Soon after her training, she has also received certification to teach chair yoga and is a Reiki master teacher. In her classes she aims to bring a unique sense of empowerment to each class through intention, meditation, pranayama and Asana (posture).
Her goal, is for students to leave each class feeling refreshed and renewed. She teaches in a way that provokes thought and meaning, letting the student experience themselves through careful planning and energy reading.
