A little about me…
I am a mother of two amazing 18 and 24-year-old sons, wife of 31 years (to the same husband), daughter and sister to eight siblings. I work as a Bilingual Instructional Coach at a public school. After a long day at work, I have to make time for ME at The Union. I have been a member at The Union for nearly seven years. Although I have had other gym memberships, I never gave up my Union membership. This is like “home” to me.
What brought me to The U?
I started yoga after getting a guest pass. I immediately fell in love with the practice. Being someone who barely perspires, after starting my yoga practice, I can no longer say that! I have become a Sweataholic!
What is my favorite class?
By far, my favorite classes are any type of music classes, whether it is IHP+, IHP, Sculpt or Dorothy’s monthly “signature” music classes! I attempt to take 5-6 classes weekly. Sometimes doing doubles.
The greatest benefit from my practice…
My greatest benefits are so many! They range from physical stamina to avoiding medication. Not to mention the comfort and relief I feel from just the simple fact of walking in the hot yoga room. Sweating out toxins, I give my skin the benefit of exfoliating naturally. My inner organs also benefit from my yoga practice. It is such a great way to end my day.
My favorite quote?…
“Little by little, day by day, what is meant for you, WILL find its way.”

November Team Spotlight
Sheri Goodland A.K.A. “Sherbear”
I teach the U-90, U-60, Inferno Hot Pilates, Kids Yoga, and Mat Pilates.
What brought me to The U?
My husband, Steve, moved to SA for work 4 years ago. He immediately found The Union and loved it! Once we sold our home in Houston, I moved to SA. I had taught in Houston for 8 years. After practicing at The Union and being a part of the amazing community, I really wanted to teach here.
My favorite quote is…
Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart.
My class is…
The U-90, I have practiced it for 20 years, so it is a part of my soul. My favorite class though is always the class I’m taking at that moment .
My favorite part about teaching?
The connection with our students.
Who inspires me?
I do not have just one person that has inspired me because I literally see people daily who inspire me by moving forward in the face of adversity, and it is so inspiring when you see someone truly enjoying and appreciating their success and gifts. SO INSPIRING!
