Cheri Dostal Ryba is Co-Director of our Yoga Therapist Training. She is a Yoga Therapist Specializing in Musculoskeletal Ailments, and a Franklin Method Movement Educator. Cheri has been teaching movement and embodiment for 15 years.

Cheri started practicing Yoga as a dance student, and completed her B.A. Dance Degree. She then trained in New Zealand with Donna Farhi’s Advanced Yoga Teacher Training program. After a decade in the fitness industry as a Certified Personal Trainer through NASM, Cheri turned her training and energy toward more therapeutic outcomes through embodiment. Yoga, meditation and running helped her navigate personal trauma and rebuild her immune function, hope and resilience. Cheri deeply believes in the power of embodied movement practice.

Anatomy is often at the core of her lessons, giving students what Cheri playfully calls ‘x-ray vision’. She blends yoga, dance, developmental movement patterns, The Franklin Method, restorative yoga and fitness education. As a Movement and Yoga Therapist, she’s helped people with chronic pain, sacroiliac joint and pelvic, neck and back injuries, mental health/anxiety and to improve digestive health. Cheri’s contagious enthusiasm inspires you to reconnect with the joy of movement.
