Meet Cheryl Martin, one of the newest certified Sage Yoga for Athletes teachers. It was a treat to work with her as she moved through the training—her skill set is unique and inspiring. As an emergency physician and ultrarunner, she knows the value of yoga to keep you grounded in every situation. Scottish by birth, Cheryl lives in Melbourne, Australia. Watching her final exam video was a treat, between her hybrid accent, positive spirit, and obvious enthusiasm for the benefits of yoga for runners. And I loved reading her homework, which was always as thorough and evidence-based as possible, while also surprising me with details (and a video, below) about how to handle a snake bite during a trail run, or the antics of Australian-rules football, or the incidence of eating disorders among jockeys.
You can learn lots from Cheryl, too. If you’re in Australia, study with her in person. If not, enjoy this excellent post:
