My Story

At 19, a severe car accident left me with debilitating back and neck pain, drastically altering my life’s trajectory. This challenge intensified at 23 with a diagnosis of fibromyalgia and two herniated discs in my lower back, rendering basic movements like bending over nearly impossible. Facing surgery and a regimen of pain medication, I sought an alternative healing path.

At 27, my discovery of yoga and Pilates marked the beginning of a profound personal transformation. I immersed myself in learning various fitness modalities, not only to aid my own recovery but also to help others achieve wellness and freedom in their bodies.

By 33, I had launched “Beach Yoga with Kerri” in Florida, offering accessible yoga classes on the beach, and later, the BYG Method—an online yoga and Pilates studio. I wanted to share the healing power of fitness, emphasizing the mind-body connection and our ability to listen to our bodies for guidance toward healing and strength.

Today, I am a living testament to overcoming physical limitations and embracing a life of wellness and mobility beyond medical expectations. My mission is to inspire and guide others to achieve their health and fitness goals, especially through home workouts that cater to all fitness and mobility levels.

Whether you want to start your fitness journey, overcome physical challenges, or find freedom in your body, I’m here to support and empower you. Discover the transformative power of my BYG METHOD home workouts, and let’s unlock the potential for a healthier, more vibrant life together.
