Yoga for Every Body
I can honestly say that Yoga saved my life. I dabbled in athletic-style Yoga for a number of years before I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that ravaged my body and took all my energy. In order to heal from the effects of Chron’s disease and years of abusing food and over-exercising. I knew I had to do something different; and to change my mindset from its afflictions too...stress, self-criticism, and perfectionism. I wanted to find a way to be kinder to my body and slow down enough so I could reconnect to my natural wisdom. Yoga provided me with a template to do all that and so much more.
I want to share that with the world! I’ve done extensive training as a teacher and bodyworker, eventually opening my own studio. I’ve been a teacher for 25 years now! It has been my guiding light and my refuge. My touchstone to the sacred. I am still in love with Yoga!
If you’ve tried Yoga and felt it wasn’t for you or found yourself feeling like a fish out of water in a class, there’s another option! If you have arthritis, chronic pain, autoimmune disease, stress-related health issues, are overweight, stiff as a board, recovering from injury or illness….then you are the perfect fit for my classes and programs. I welcome you to come as you are and know that my instruction will meet you where you’re at!
I never want cost to be a barrier to practice. If you have need for financial assistance, please contact me.
Om is Where the Heart Is
Opening Your Heart Chakra
Wednesday, September 13th
Modern life, with so much sitting, can block the flow of energy to the heart chakra. If we are consumed by anxiety , overwhelm & fear, that's a sign that the heart is blocked. Blocked energy can have a profound effect on our mental state, and can contribute to physical ailments of the shoulders, upper back, heart & lungs.
When the heart chakra is balanced we feel surrounded by love & joy; we feel more open to life itself. Compassion is symptomatic of a healthy heart chakra, which allows us to thrive in relationships. An open heart chakra helps us see all of the beauty & love around us and to connect to ourselves, our loved ones, & the natural world more deeply.
Join Cyndi for this heart-centered class that requires no experience. Practice includes breathwork, gentle flows and a heart-centered relaxation meditation. ALL ARE WELCOME!
Rest & Reset: Activate Your Vagus Nerve
Wednesday, September 20, 9-10:30am
The Vagus Nerve is the longest nerve in the body and is an important part of our nervous system. When stimulated, it turns on the parasympathetic nervous system which influences digestion, reduces inflammation, enhances emotional well-being, lowers heart rate and blood pressure, and strengthens the immune system. If you want to improve your health and well-being, this is the nerve to be focusing on!
Join Cyndi for this live streaming therapeutic Yoga class that focuses on breath work, gentle Yoga movements, restorative postures and guided meditation to develop what's known as Vagal Tone. Vagal Tone enables you to respond to stress effectively & efficiently, to heal and balance both body & mind. No experience required. All are welcome!
