I am a Life Strategies/Stress Management and Communications Counsellor focusing on Common Sense Solutions for Life’s Journey.  The reason that I do what I do:  I realized that by gaining an understanding of why we do the things we do and feel the way we do about our own reactions, the easier our journey becomes.  I  signed up for Parlour Project because:   I believe that connection should be considered one of our essential needs and especially when so many of our community are feeling alone and fearful.  Together it is just better!    Also, Lee-Anne’s passion for this project is a good kind of contagious!!

Cheri Temple
Cheri Temple

By day Cheri is an elementary school teacher that has always enjoyed working with kids, youth and just being a helper.
Cheri has been in the fitness world for about 7 years.  It began as an outlet that soon turned into a passion.  She began working out a small fitness studio that helped her grow and learn which then encouraged her to take her new passion to another level and help others.
She started teaching small fitness classes first to some soccer mom friends.  That is where a vision of helping people that normally wouldn’t set foot in a big box gym or large fitness facility came to be, as she originally was one of those people.
Cheri’s husband, Matt, and her had gone through a whole life change and reset with health and wellness and this is where their drive to help others came to be.  They wanted to start a small studio that would support a small community of like-minded people striving for a healthy lifestyle both physically and mentally and that is where their studio RiseAbove Fitness came to life. Their studio first opened in Bolton in an indoor soccer facility and when they outgrew this studio they made the decision to move into their now current location almost 5 years ago, which is where they are today.
Fitness and wellbeing continues to be a passion of Cheri’s and when asked to join the Parlour Project to continue to share her passion, it took no second thought at all to want to be part of such a positive, connecting and helping community.
Certifications:  Fitness Instructors Specialist through CanFitPro, Fitness Kickboxing level 1, Tabata Bootcamp Certified Instructor, Sergeant Kens Bootcamp level 1, HIIT with Metafit training, Bosu Dynamic and several other courses/CEC’s each year to keep up to date and current. Cheri is a lifelong learner that is always looking to grow, help and connect with people.

Kendra Watson
Kendra Watson

I began my yoga journey 8.5 years ago when I started my apprenticeship to become a carrier. Not realizing precisely how physically demanding the job would be, yoga became the counter balance to the physicality of the job. I fell in love immediately, and never looked back! I started my yoga teacher training a year ago and been teaching several times a week ever since. I love the balance and movement that a vinyasa practice brings and know exactly what yoga did not only for my body, but my mind as well. I am really looking forward to offering my classes to the Parlour Project Community, and hope that my yoga classes can bring people as much joy as it has brought me.
