Fluid, creative, and powerful.

Having moved to Gwinnett County from Atlanta, Sherry recognized the lack of hot power yoga classes or heated yoga studios in Gwinnett County. She drove 35 miles to get to hot yoga studios or studios that offered heated yoga classes, which made it very difficult to keep up her regular practice. Realizing that other Gwinnett yogis were doing the same, Sherry knew she had to bring hot yoga to Gwinnett County, and is excited to have founded Gwinnett’s first hot yoga studio in the heart of Downtown Lawrenceville.

Sherry began yoga teacher training in 2004 after college. Currently, she is a 200 hour Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT) with Yoga Alliance, and is also a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP).  She has trained through YogaFit International and CorePower Yoga, and is currently working toward completing a 300 hour Registered Yoga Teacher training under Sheila Ewers with John’s Creek Yoga to earn the designation of 500 hour Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher. Sherry practiced and taught non-heated vinyasa yoga for nearly ten years before finally trying hot power yoga in 2015. Hot power yoga transformed her yoga practice into new levels she never knew were possible and transformed her body into its most powerful form. Although teaching Power Yoga is Sherry’s specialty, she is also certified to teach Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra. Sherry also has experience teaching many forms of dance, and holds certifications to teach Barre fitness and mat Pilates.

Sherry’s classes are a moving meditation and are set to dynamic playlists that she loves to share. Having danced for 20+ years, vinyasa yoga for Sherry is like a dance. Her favorite part about teaching yoga is watching her students move together with harmony and rhythm, hearing their synchronized breath, and feeling their powerful group energy. She inspires yogis to find their strongest and most powerful practice in a mindful and safe space.

In between yoga classes, Sherry is a Georgia-licensed attorney and practices law primarily in Gwinnett County. She is a founding partner of Tyler Moore Law, LLC,  also located in Downtown Lawrenceville. Yoga balances Sherry’s life by offering her a yin to the yang of her attorney career. She believes that everyone can benefit from yoga like she does, especially those in high-stress professions. She is so happy to bring the gift of hot power yoga to the Gwinnett community and hopes to see you soon at PPY!
