Move slow and notice. Notice the transition, the breath, and the reaction. Yoga postures such as standing, balance, and seated variations are weaved together with the breath, creating a moving meditation. The body becomes strengthened, the mind becomes calmed, and the slow pace gives you the space to cultivate awareness. This class is suitable for all!

Cynthia integrates mediation into her classes with an inclusive approach focused on creating a safe and accessible environment for all. She utilizes the healing aspects of meditation while inviting a deep awareness of the mind-body connection. Through several studies it has been shown, that an ongoing meditation practice can help reduce stress levels, help with pain management, improve memory function along with many other benefits. She has completed Advanced Trauma Sensitive Meditation with David Treleaven.
Cynthia practices reiki with the same healing intentions as her yoga and mediation. Reiki is a form of energy healing, suitable for all, and can help enable relaxation and reduce pain. This allows for the body to promote self healing. Because Reiki works in the energy field, it helps bring coherence to all the systems of your body and mind so they can work together in harmony.
