About Sharron: Sharron married into an Italian family 25 years ago. Ever since, learning about the Tuscan culture, cooking and way of life has been a passion. Sharron has led multiple cooking retreats in Tuscany and regularly guides groups around the Italian countryside sharing the most beautiful sights, hidden treasures and history the Tuscan region has to offer. Classes are taught in the Tuscan style using fresh, local ingredients. No cooking experience required!
About Cheryl: Cheryl first visited Italy in 2005 and fell in love with the country, the food, the wine and the people. In 2010 she went on a yoga retreat to Tuscany and vowed to go back again as a teacher. She met Sharron as a student in one of her yoga classes. When their conversations led to the subject of mutual passion, cooking and food, the idea for a collaboration was born.
Cheryl has been practicing yoga since 1998 and teaching since 2010. Her passion is Baptiste Style Power Vinyasa Yoga but also has training in hatha and yoga therapy which allows her to work with a wide variety of people. She works with students to create new strength and possibility in their bodies while honoring individual differences and physical reality. No yoga experience is required to participate in the trip. Fit beginners to advanced practitioners are welcome!
