A couple of powerhouse women,
Holly Robison and Cheryl McMurray will be your guides on this virtual yoga intensive.
Sharing their insights, wisdom, and experience, you'll graduate with a top-notch yoga education likened to a university experience. Because you, and your students, deserve nothing less.
Holly Robison, E-RYT 500, began her yoga journey in 2002 while pregnant with her third baby. She immediately discovered the physical, psychological, and emotional benefits of having a yoga practice. After teaching for a few years, she because the director of a few yoga studios. During that time, she was dismayed at the quality of yoga teachers who auditioned for the studios. Deciding to put up or shut up, she got off of her soapbox and created Sundara Yoga Shala's 200 Hour Teacher Training program in 2011.
With over 900 hours of training, Holly's classes offer a mix of encouragement, enthusiasm, love, compassion, and humor. As Founder and Director of Sundara Yoga & Wellness, her yoga vision and inspiration expands. Bringing her strong influence of fundamentals and personal empowerment to this teacher training program, she encourages her students to tap into their natural intuition and notice the subtlest of physical cues while they learn how to guide a safe, authentic yoga class of their own.
Cheryl McMurray, RYT 200, began practicing yoga in 2012 when a friend opened up a yoga studio a few miles from her house. It took some prodding, but she finally took class to support the business of her friend. After the first class, she was hooked. Not too long after, she met Holly at that same studio. Once Holly opened Sundara Yoga Shala, Cheryl came to help at the front desk -- and with Holly’s gentle encouragement, she enrolled in the Sundara Yoga Shala Teacher Training Program.
It’s been the beginning of amazing journey for Cheryl -- watching her own students progress in their practices as well as overcoming her own teaching insecurities. Coming from a background of long-distance road cycling and backpacking (and having sustained her own share of injuries), Cheryl's
interest and passion for anatomy was born through the school of hard knocks. She loves the amazing miracle of the human body and its ability to heal itself. Her trainings include 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training through Sundara Yoga Shala, Yoga Tune Up® certification, The Roll Model® certification, 20 hour Yoga Anatomy Training with Tiffany Cruikshank, 20 hour Tom Meyers Anatomy 101, and 20 hour Annie Carpenters Smartflow Yoga Certification.
