Rhiannon Cherokee Wynn

Eight years later and I still don’t look anything like Madonna, but I sure feel like a rock star! The practice has helped to transform my life and spirit. In 2007 I did my first 200 hour Power Vinyasa Teacher Training and haven’t stopped studying and learning. Since then, I’ve completed a chakra based 500 hour Teacher Training, additional Power Vinyasa training and Yin Yoga training. I’ve completed certifications in Partner Acrobatics and Flying Therapeutics, HoopYogini, Aerial Yoga and am currently pursuing completion of my Elemental Yoga Therapy training with Swara Yoga School.
