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 in 2017.

Sherry has over 20 years of yoga practice under her belt, and took her first 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 received her additional 300 hours of advanced teacher training under Sheila Ewers with John’s Creek Yoga, thereby earning the designation of a 500 hour Registered Yoga Teacher. Sherry practiced and taught non-heated vinyasa yoga for nearly 14 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 as a yoga teacher, she is also certified to teach Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra. Sherry has experience teaching dance to children and adults, and also 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 Lankford & Moore Law,  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 honored to serve as a community leader in Lawrenceville and hopes to see you in the Square soon!
