herry Brourman is a movement educator. She volunteered at a school for handicapped children when she was 12 years old, and continued there until leaving for Boston University graduating as a physical therapist in 1973. At her first professional job, she was assigned the task of evaluating 60 disabled children for whether they might learn to walk with training, thus initiating her quest for articulating movement education. Subsequently at Rusk Institute in NYC, Sherry developed classical skills for long term and severe pain rehabilitation. In 1975, she opened the first private physical therapy office in New Mexico. Sherry began teaching yoga to her patients in small group classes and during this time studied walking as the template for all physical activity eventually inspiring her groundbreaking book, Walk Yourself Well, 1998. Just after publication, Sherry started training yoga teachers and knew that this her new book, Using Yoga Therapeutically, was in its beginning stages. A member of the American Physical Therapy Association, the International Association of Yoga Therapy, and a Yoga Alliance registration at the E-RYT 500 level, Sherry continues to study and teach the ways that her two fields coalesce scientifically and effectively. Sherry taught a seminar entitled "Using Yoga Therapeutically" for medical professionals for 10 years; and for five years she has taught functional anatomy at Loyola Marymount University on its yoga therapy certification program. She currently teaches workshops for yoga teachers, yoga therapists, physical therapists, and many healing arts professionals. Sherry also founded the Tensegrity Center for Yoga Therapy, an IAYT registered school, has developed a 300 hour internship program for yoga therapists, and continues her 40th year in private practice.
