Rie Monique Cherie

You can feel good in your body and mind! I can help. 

My name is Rie (pronounced ‘re’ as in re-education, rejuvenation, and relaxation). People come to me when they need help addressing issues of the pelvic girdle, shoulder girdle, core strength and mood. I am a certified Yoga Therapist, A Franklin Method Educator and a Tai Chi Instructor. I dabble in many things and offer many forms of help.
Drawing from a variety of somatic practices, I enjoy focusing on neuromuscular training and reeducation to create functional movement patterns. Combining tools I learned from my training in Dynamic Neuro-Cognitive Imagery, DNI® (aka, The Franklin Method®) , Yoga and Tai Chi, I offer accessible formats for building body awareness, alleviating pain, and fostering the health of interoceptive body systems. Current science links the health of the interoceptive systems to recovery and healing within the following: PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Chronic Pain and Addictive Behaviors.
