Her first TV appearance was on the very popular ‘Yoga for Health’, led by yoga teacher Richard Hittleman. Yoga For Health was a very influential show and introduced millions to yoga. Basically, like the keep fit features on breakfast television in the eighties, the audience were expected to keep up with the presenters / students Richard Hittleman, Lynn Marshall and Cheryl, as they went through their paces.
