Cynthia first began practising yoga in 1998. Very early on she enjoyed seeing the parallels of her practice on the mat, and how it helped with overcoming challenges in the rest of her life. With a strong focus on alignment which she learned from the Iyengar tradition, she sees yoga as meditation in action, and advocates staying mindful in each movement, viewing every asana as an opportunity to grow and evolve.
With lots of attention to detail, Cynthia aims to give students an understanding about the intended benefit of each pose, and breathing technique, and loves watching students find increased awareness and intelligence in their own bodies. She teaches beginner, flow, kids, chair, prenatal, and parent and baby yoga classes, and leads meditation and mindfulness sessions at a number of locations on the Island. “It is through your body that you realize you are a spark of divinity.” – BKS Iyengar
