The teachings of Sherry Sidoti of FLY Yoga School
Sherry’s vision is to provide a warm and welcoming environment for the teachings of yoga to find us in our everyday lives, to support a stronger and inclusive community, to honor and heal ourselves and our beautiful natural world around us, and mostly to be curious about and enjoy this journey called life! Sherry is a true sharer and a mirror into fearlessness, moving people to move- out of their comfort zones and into the fire for healing. She does so with the heart of a warrior, and the touch of the mother. She has a strong desire to "go there", and lovingly urges others to go with her. She believes greatly in the ancient teachings of yoga and how they seamlessly apply to modern living, our relationships and everyday life; and that the science of yoga in its' fullness is a sacred path for healing, harmony and balance. She helps us realize this by exercising the yoga teachings within our physical, mental, emotional, intuitive and spiritual bodies in every practice. With form, she says, comes freedom. She has been sharing yoga for 14 years and honors all of her teachers. Sherry offers 200 + 500 hour Teacher Training Programs on Martha’s Vineyard as well as guest teaching for her teacher Saul David Raye’s training programs. More about Sherry, click here

The longest journey is the one from mind to heart. What if we could easily uncover what clouds our hearts, and rest in the space of openness, of unconditional love? In this workshop, we will do just this; beginning with a Devotional Yoga class that will include yoga posturing and devotional meditations that tap us into the truth of our hearts. Following, we will learn and chant the Heart Sutra Mantra as a direct pathway to unclutter the mindstuff and open ourselves to being loving stewards in our lives and for the planet.
All levels movement, meditation and chanting

The Psoas is the deepest muscle of the human body, affecting our structural balance, muscular integrity, flexibility, strength, range of motion, and organ functioning. Additionally the psoas acts as a body brain, is known by many mystical traditions as "the muscle the soul". An overly contracted, thus tired, psoas is the culprit of many physical and emotional ailments, mostly by holding us in patterning of "fight/flight/or freeze". A relaxed psoas is the mark of freedom in the body & spirit, helping us connect to our ground, stand comfortably in who we are, and receive the messeges our soul wants us to hear.
