Originally from NYC, and transported from Los Angeles, CA, Sherry Sidoti-Rego has lived on Martha’s Vineyard, MA since 2002. She offers private and group yoga, teacher training, yoga retreats and one-on-one mentoring to many wonderful humans from around the world. Sherry weaves in the spirit, magic and integrity of the yoga teachings and the practice of self awareness without taking it all too seriously. Sherry is particularly drawn to the change that is experienced through yoga – the “play” within the body; to use breath and movement, to get to know ourselves and our nature better; and to purify the body and mind stuff so we can be more in our truth. Sherry is humbled by the process of unfolding – peeling through layers – and is stricken by the sweet power of quiet mind and seat.
Her musings are hosted by a number of magazines and periodicals; including her Seasonal Sanity column in The Martha's Vineyard Times and, There’s No Place Like Ohm a column for Heart & Soul Magazine where she was a guest author from 2015-2017. She has published articles and stories in Elephant Journal, Anthropology & Humanism Quarterly, and Om Body, as well as being a guest on numerous podcasts including: Twisted Times and What Matters Most. She writes with feeling and devotion in ode to making her way through life with one foot grounded on earth and the other lifting towards spirit.
Sherry won First Place 2021 for her creative-nonfiction essay, Mosaics, with the Martha's Vineyard Institute of Creative Writing. She is currently working on her first Memoir.
