MBSR Instructor - Cheryl Shah

Cheryl has taught MBSR classes at Qualcomm and the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), Center for Mindfulness for 7 years. She has her MBSR Certification through the UCSD Professional Training Institute. Cheryl is also a qualified Mindful Self-Compassion teacher, pursuing certification through UCSD Professional Training Institute. Cheryl’s current day job is in finance with UC San Diego Housing Dining & Hospitality. 

Cheryl first discovered meditation in college when her wandering mind caused difficulties with her studies, and she learned about mindfulness when she discovered MBSR in 2005. In 2010, she began to explore mindfulness more purposefully, taking a UCSD MBSR class, followed by the then brand new Mindful Self-Compassion program. She subsequently attended an intensive 10-day silent retreat at the Southern California Vipassana Center in Joshua Tree in 2013, which led her to decide that she wanted to bring mindfulness to others, so she pursued her Certifications through the UCSD Professional Training Institute.
