Trained initially as a modern dancer, massage therapist and dance therapist, Cynthia worked as a Dance Therapist in a Forensic Mental Health setting for 15 years. During this time she discovered Yoga and began to train in the Anusara style of Hatha Yoga. After 15 years in the mental health field she returned to her private massage therapy practice to give her the freedom to further her studies in massage and to complete her Yoga teacher training. At the same time, she discovered Myofascial Release Therapy as taught by John Barnes and studied for the next three years with him and his faculty. Cynthia completed Yoga Teacher Training through the Anusara School in 2011, with further education with Elise Miller for Yoga for Scoliosis. She has been teaching Yoga since 2005, practicing Massage Therapy since 1982 and is currently adding a new passion to the mix - Aromatherapy! Cynthia is currently studying to become Internationally Certified as an Aromatherapist. Ever the student, Cynthia feels strongly that life and her students are her best teachers! Keeping a strong heartfelt connection to all that she does and maintaining a sense of humor about life are her best qualities and this brings lightness to her life and teaching!
