Name: Cherry Pearce
Cherry was introduced to meditation and mindfulness at 6 years of age with her Mum at an ashram in Western Australia. She grew up living on her Dad’s boat where the coast was her playground and she has been seeking waves ever since. The alternate lifestyle really cemented her love and respect for the ocean and the bohemian approach to life. Cherry moved to LA to develop her acting career and whilst she was there embraced yoga discovering that a regular practice really strengthened her surfing and the two passions really go hand in hand.
Now based in Sydney,when she’s not in the ocean the former gymnast spends most of her time upside down exploring the art of hand balancing, inversions and strength building. Cherry believes “A strong body through yoga gets me in the air, but a strong meditation practice keeps me light.”
Cherry made the leap from gymnast to yoga teacher training and hasn’t looked back since. With certifications from Amanda Fuzes Prana Yoga, Simon Park, Sarah Owen, & Noelle Connolly at BodyMindLife she has gained a wealth of knowledge and now also holds a 200hr Meditation Cert. She takes a mindful approach to her classes – you can expect to be challenged and strengthen the connection with your body and breath, which will leave you focused and present. Catch Cherry classes at Bondi Junction studio or give her a wave in the surf at North Bondi.
