As a long time yoga student, Cindy has experienced how this beautiful, ancient practice has empowered and awakened her in so many ways. She began her studies by receiving her teaching certification in 2002 through Peachtree Yoga Center. She continued with many renowned teachers mostly being influenced through the life affirming practice of Anusara® Yoga. Even though she has now resigned her Anusara affiliation, she received her Anusara Inspired Certification in 2011. She has also received certifications in hypnotherapy and is a Reiki Master. Cindy served as a lululemon ambassador in 2010/2011 and was also voted best yoga instructor in the “Best Self Magazine Best of 2013 Contest.” She opened Sacred Garden Yoga, which has been thriving since 2003, and has also led several retreats to the mountains of N. Georgia, North Carolina, Costa Rica and Peru. She is also lead instructor in SGY’s Yoga of the Heart Teacher Training program. In her 17 years of study, Cindy has cultivated a teaching style that strongly integrates alignment of body, mind and heart. She understands both the energetic and physical body so is able to help her students align their bodies to provide greater strength, balance, freedom an clarity. Cindy loves philosophy and is a bit of a spiritual junkie so her teachings are richly infused with theory, but translated in a way that is applicable and practical for greater understanding. Her greatest aspiration is in empowering others to find joy, purpose, and complete well being in their lives.
Born in Peru, Cindy is fascinated with the relationship that the native Peruvians have with nature and loves to incorporate this knowledge into her teachings. A modern day mystic, she is highly empathic, loves ceremony and is a well renowned energy worker. Having that latin flare, Cindy and her husband have also been enthusiastic salsa dancers for over 15 years. Most of all, she enjoys spending time with her greatest teacher and grand musician- her son Ethan, who is 12 and the source of so much delight and inspiration.
