arts, including classical ballet. She began her professional life as a respiratory therapist, and after
seventeen years of practice, she returned to school and earned her master's degree in physical
therapy in 1996.
Cheryl discovered The Pilates Method in 1983, and once she began working as a physical
therapist, she made the connection that Pilates presented a wonderful tool to help people of all
ages recover from injuries and illnesses. She immediately began applying the principles of Pilates
to her patients to improve their quality of life and level of function. In 1999, she founded Ilov
Integrated Arts, specializing in Pilates-based rehabilitation. Cheryl had her first experience with
The Feldenkrais Method® in 2000.
She began the required four-year training program to become a Feldenkrais practitioner in
February 2006 and graduated in November 2009. During Cheryl's remarkable journey of learning,
healing, and self-discovery, she also discovered a martial art called Ninpo Tai Jutsu. She fell in
love with the art and the training as well as the powerful connection between Feldenkrais and
martial arts and their incredible healing power.
Cheryl has dedicated her life to helping others achieve the best quality of life possible. Having
personally experienced the anxiety of dealing with chronic pain, stress, and fatigue, she also
understands the frustration of feeling out of control, gaining weight, and struggling to find a
healthy, effective way to recover after devastating injuries. Cheryl has integrated her education,
experience, and expertise to develop a program for people, regardless of their age or current level
of function. It is her firm belief that anyone can be fit, flexible, healthy, vibrant, and energetic in
their fifties, sixties, seventies, and beyond.
