Wellness & Mat Pilates
Honouring the physical body or temple of Yah (God) is to eat and hydrate well and exercise with a goal to de-stress, re-focus, centre and challenge at the core. Mat pilates is the gift offered to build the abdominal muscles, align the spine, connecting body and mind setting a solid foundation as we age.
Hello! I'm Cheryl
I’m a passionate woman of faith with a mission to inspire you to live like the gorgeous butterfly you are, to soar fearlessly in all areas of your life. With every fibre of my being I want you to conquer your fears, be a stronger communicator, setting boundaries and/or pursuing your dreams in your fullness in the spirit of how the Creator views you. When you understand He SEES you and how He sees you, anything is possible!
While I’ve been educated in the fields of both Communication and Education, I’ve always desired to expound on those skills in the area of wellness. I’m a Certified Yoga and Mat Pilates Instructor, in the classical style. Through the Trifecta Training Institute, I’m a trauma-informed pilates instructor, always on a path of leveling up my teaching experience to serve you and become more trauma-informed, catering to life beyond the mat.
Mat Pilates is the sole practice I’m committed to sharing with you for I believe core health is paramount in the long-term, as we age, as it’s beyond mere flexibility.
One-to-one is very important to me because I believe it gives my clients a more concrete understanding of the practice and the safety protocols for their unique body.
As someone who has always battled anxiety and stress management, escaping to my mat is no doubt my refuge and writing is my sister therapy. As you check out the writing section may you further be inspired as I seek to not only inspire you but your children as well.
As a Bible believer, recently connecting with my Hebraic faith/history, strongly rooted in upholding Torah living, I love to use the original Hebrew names of our Creator being the original language of my people. You’ll notice this representation throughout my outreach.
So, sister and fellow Daughter of Zion, if you need a space to be uplifted, inspired, empowered, assisted, get your wellness groove on, self-care regime concrete, faith restored, this is THE place!
I can only pray and hope that the joy of Yahuah that exudes through me will be felt by your heart, at the soul level.
We are in this earthly journey together, mom, sister, friend. Soar on, unto eternity!
Your Butterfly Sis,
“We retire too early and we die too young. Our prime of life should be in the 70’s and old age should not come until we are almost 100.” ~Joseph Pilates

What is Mat Pilates?
It’s a form of exercise that strengthens and lengthens your entire body, focusing on your core muscles and also training your arms and legs. It’s a practice based on the original exercises that German-born soldier, Joseph Pilates developed as a young man in the 1920s and began to teach others.
Why is this practice so revolutionizing to the mind and body?
It’s revolutionizing in that if you’re seeking to sculpt, build and tone your muscles or increase flexibility and improve your posture you’ll gain results through a series of flow exercises. The workout will give you a long, lean look with the option to incorporate equipment such as resistance bands, weights or rings.
The goal is control and with that comes a strong concentration on form, this focus takes a special
discipline of the mind which directly impacts your body so they work in unison.

“Your whole mind, brain and sense of self is changed in response to trauma…the largest problem of being traumatized is that it’s hard to feel that anything that’s going on around you really matters.” ~Bessel van der Kolk
FEAR = Face Everything and R.I.Z.E.!
"The MIND, when housed within a healthful body
possesses a glorious sense of power"
“Lazy breathing converts the lungs, literally and figuratively speaking, into a cemetery for the deposition of diseased, dying and dead germs.” ~Joseph Pilates
“A few well-designed movements, properly performed in a balanced sequence, are worth hours of sloppy calisthenics or forced contortion.” ~Joseph Pilates
Mat Pilates Private & Community Sessions
And they shall be mine, saith Adonai of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
Ask Cheryl what will help you live the best life as a woman of fearLESS faith.
Classes are designed to meet participants where they are. Modifications will be displayed so that those with less experience can find an alternative to benefit from the same movement.
YES! Periodically, mini pilates sessions will be posted on the YouTube channel, AMAZIAH WomenWordzWellness. You can always connect with Cheryl via any one of her points of contact. An Instagram page for the Clarity Trails program participants will allow for new friendships, discussion and/or health gems.
In the private on-line course you will learn where trauma is stored in the body. Over the 5-day period, each day a specific area of the body will be the focus. Prior to the session you will perform a body scan. Once you are aware of an imbalance, movement, consistent, focused movement in the area will bring restoration and release.
Cheryl’s expertise is in the area of the creative word. This simply means using your visual cognition to create a picture in your listeners’ minds. This is much to do with word choice. You’ll be inspired to think outside the box of your usual vocabulary and explore new words, namely adjectives that help bring your ideas to life!
AMAZIAH’S target audience is women, especially all Daughters of Zion who passionately embrace the Hebraic faith, striving to keep the Ten Commandments and connect to their ancestral roots to the Motherland, Africa. It doesn’t matter where on the spiritual journey you are. It is these women who like many, wear many hats, have dealt with trauma and also love health and reading through a Biblical approach. Cheryl wants these women to know she’s in their corner. The ultimate goal is to keep them lifted in this life, on Earth in preparation for the New Earth to come.
A portion of fees for services will go towards local foundations that support domestically abused women and their children. AMAZIAH is in the midst of forming its own non-profit organization called JewelKeepers to aid the orphans in Africa such as the Motherly Care Children’s Home in Kenya where Cheryl conducted missionary work in 2003.
My Clients Say...
Be inspired by women who have inspired Cheryl to be her best self. These are EXTRAordinary souls that make faith and fitness paramount to their success!
"She Stands TALL"
I have been exploring Pilates for a while when I found out about Cheryl's class. What made me sign up for her one-to-one was her ability to make participants feel comfortable. She accepts her flaws, works on improving herself and gives herself grace. If a teacher can accept that in themselves I feel like I am in the perfect place to do the same, and continue my Pilates practice. Thank-you Cheryl!
Amazing services for women, mind, body and soul!
"Stand strong sisters"
It was a pleasure to meet Cher. She took the time to understand my objectives and past practice experience to tailor a flow that was in my range and ability. It was a positive and uplifting experience.
"TRUE SELF-CARE IS NOT SOFT BATHS AND CHOCOLATE CAKE. IT IS MAKING THE CHOICE TO BUILD A LIFE YOU DON'T NEED TO REGULARLY ESCAPE FROM"
