Welcome

I teach inquisitive and serious seekers the key teachings of yoga in a way that is authentic, accessible and applicable, allowing them to deepen their understanding of yoga, and of themselves, in order to transform their practice and their lives.

This includes all of the limbs of yoga, including asana, meditation, and philosophy. Please browse this website to discover what I offer to help you experience the depth and breadth of yoga.

I am an Authorized Teacher of Neelakantha Meditation, offering formal personal instruction into this profound and transformative practice.

My asana classes stress both alignment and flow. Students learn how to connect with breath, connect breath with movement, and safely move to promote healing and prevent injury.

One of my greatest passions is studying and teaching the great texts and stories of yoga, bringing them alive to modern seekers and guiding students to a greater access of how to apply this wisdom to live more loving and productive lives.

REFINEMENT REFINED

I previously wrote on “Refinement” and in the 3+ years since, I have refined my understanding of refinement. This points to precisely the process of refinement: it is a continuing process, and in that process there are many stages. And as I previously argued, this process of refinement applies to all aspects of your life. And yoga, particularly meditation, is a key means to facilitating refinement. (read more)

Cindy on Elephant

I want to broach a subject that some of us in the yoga world are uncomfortable with—money.

I have to deal with this from two sides: paying my own teachers, and how to value myself and accept payment for my work as a teacher or yoga.
