Sheri was an English teacher when she first heard the word “Pilates” in 1988, but it wasn’t until years later that she was encouraged to actually experiment with this fascinating method of mind-body awareness. Sheri is a fully certified, classically-trained Pilates instructor and has been practicing since 2002, taking classes and workshops with several 2nd generation master teachers and many talented instructors along the way. She works with everyday people, clients from all paths of life and hopes to inspire each one to find something in the work that becomes their own. She loves introducing beginners to this unique movement system, as well as challenging students who are ready to hone more advanced skills. Her caring nature and genuine love for the Pilates Method creates a safe place to explore and challenge your potential. Sheri works to integrate and improve posture, spinal flexibility, muscle strength, and connection to the core. Sometimes simply moving through our day can be difficult, but when we move from our center with the support of the breath and focused attention, it can be lot easier! When not teaching or doing Pilates, Sheri also practices yoga and rock climbs….both of which are complemented by the core work of Pilates.
Erin Harding knows first hand the healing benefits of a regular Kaiut Yoga Practice. She considers it a cornerstone in her three year recovery from chronic Lyme disease. After years of battling her lyme and a busy full life including: equestrian sports, skiing & biking (that maybe weren’t so kind to the body) Kaiut has proved to be a practice for life and is easily integrated into the busiest of schedules. After developing her personal practice for 3 years and participating in workshops with founder Francisco Kaiut, Erin signed on to the instructor training in Toronto, ON Canada. Francisco was asked at her first teacher training, "What is the end result of this practice?" His response was simple...."Joy!" Having a body that allows us to do what we want to do, when we want to do it, leads us to joy. While Erin considers herself an unlikely yogi, she has always been passionate in her pursuit of the most joyous life possible! Erin has been a regular at Body Dynamics for the past two years so bringing her passion for The Kaiut Yoga Method, was a natural fit. In September she will receive her 300- hour Kaiut Yoga Certification through Kaiut Yoga International.

Aprille began practicing yoga in 1993, first studying on her own with books, then later seeking out a teacher. She dreamed back then of becoming a yoga teacher, but it would be years before that became a reality. Over the years Aprille tried and studied a variety of styles of yoga. After years of sitting stationary in the technology field and dynamically moving while rock climbing, Aprille came to Kaiut Yoga with a variety of injuries. Somewhere during that time Aprille had children, which had also altered her body in ways that required healing. After stepping into her first Kaiut Yoga class, Aprille immediately recognized the benefits of Kaiut, experiencing sensations she hadn’t felt in all her years of other yoga practice. Aprille has spent the last year studying with Francisco Kaiut in Boulder and in Brazil and is excited to focus on helping others experience greater freedom of movement and enjoyment of their bodies.
