Marilyn's training style is motivating and encouraging. She will push you when you are slacking and remind you why you are doing this, but she will also slow down those hard core people who hurt themselves and need to rehabilitate. Fitness is important to battle life -- physically and mentally!

Terra Mathers, 200 RYT Hatha/Ashtanga
Rock Fitness Yoga Instructor
Terra has always been focused on fitness. She was a high school track athlete and as she grew older, she stayed dedicated to running and weight training. After the birth of her fourth child she found herself heavier than she had ever been. She began a fitness program that had an element of yoga in it. "I will never forget trying to move into a triangle pose and having to move my 'belly roll' out of the way to complete it," she says. The weight came off and she continued to do yoga.
After a terrible mountain bike accident, Terra was unable to run for an extended period of time. Her body couldn't perform the way it always had - but she found she was still able to do yoga. Yoga became an essential part of her life. She started to find peace and a self control she hadn't had before. This experience led her to Chidanandi Sherri Cherokee of Alpha Omega Yoga. Terra received her 200 RYT in Hatha/Ashtanga yoga from Chidanandi Sherri so that she could help bring others the physical and emotional healing that she had experienced through yoga firsthand.
Her own personal yoga practice is powerful and strong within a peaceful serenity. Terra's goal is to help others find their own practice that will strengthen them in a personal way. She considers it an honor to share her practice with others. Namaste.
