MORE ABOUT CYNTHIA:
Through her teacher trainings and personal quest for knowledge she has had the wonderful fortune of studying with; Pandit Jerome Smith, Seane Corn, Gabriel Halpern, Aadil Palkhivala, Eddie Modestini, Nicki Doane, Sandy Anderson, Rolf Solvic, Daren Friesen, Rich Logan and has been so deeply inspired by the wisdom of Rolf Gates.
Cynthia has been influenced by the lineage of the Himalayan Institute and Iyengar and Vinyasa styles of yoga. Her classes integrate dynamic vinyasa movement, well defined alignment, meditation and pranayama (mindful breathing) to create a fun atmosphere for her students to create strength, connect with their bodies, and ultimately develop the truth within.
"The asanas are beautiful, fun, and a wonderful dance with life"; but most importantly to her is that her students leave each class with a deeper understanding of their true self and a heart that is open to the idea that there is a light that resides in each and every person. And it is a personal choice to turn it on.

The Chakras in Action: How to use the Chakras in creating effective drop-in classes
*Please note this class is open to teachers and experienced students only.*
The Chakras chart a course across our lives by defining key relationships that have to be resolved on the path to spiritual maturity. They are an energetic link between the manifest and the un-manifest dimensions in our lives and the place in which thought becomes form. A well-designed yoga class unfolds along the path laid out by the Chakras.
This workshop will combine a lecture/discussion period and an asana-practice session dedicated to integrating the concepts taught.
$65 per person (this training not included in the workshop weekend price)
