Cherilyn Hopkins, RYT-200
Yoga has been both a best friend and a tool of transformation for Cherilyn, pushing her outside of her comfort zone enough to see things from different, new perspectives.
In 2012 at a low point in her life, she discovered Yin Yoga, during a random home practice. It opened her up in new and profound ways to the art of Stillness and Surrender. Quickly, she was guided to complete Teacher Training.
Cherilyn loves sharing this practice of quiet power in community. She created Yin Within Essential in 2014 sharing practices at various studios. She enjoys using aromatherapy in her classes to help initiate this gentle unfolding and moving inward.
She has studied and completed Yin Yoga 1, 2 and 3 modules with Biff Mithoefer. Cherilyn completed Reiki 1 and 2 with Linda Eyrich and 200 hour Hatha Yoga training with Delia Quigley and Denise Kay at Stillpoint Yoga in Blairstown in 2015. In August of 2018, she became the manager of Honor Yoga Washington, holding space for Yoga, Aerial and Meditation practices.

This yoga journey started for me like it has for many… just looking to move, the asana part. However, that quickly changed as I practiced more frequently. At one point I was overwhelmed by a feeling to deepen my practice by taking a teacher training, not even sure at that time that I want to teach. That decision was transformational. Continuing to yearn for knowledge, more trainings have led me to become a RYT 500 with specialty certifications; restorative yoga, trauma-informed yoga, yoga for anxiety, aerial yoga, yin yoga, and mindfulness. Being the perpetual student allows me to offer more to students. I enjoy teaching all students regardless of ability or reason for being in the class. I have had the opportunity to teach diverse populations such as trauma survivors, foster youth, at-risk juveniles and adults, as well as high school sports teams, corporate wellness programs, and in traditional yoga studios. One of the most memorable moments was when a foster youth in my Bliss Yoga program stated “ I have never felt this way before, peaceful”… now that is yoga working its magic.
I look forward to serving as a guide on your yoga journey, whatever that may look like. Hope to see everyone on the mat or flying!
