Cindy is a certified Iyengar Yoga instructor, who has been teaching yoga in Asheville, NC, for nearly 25 years. From 2005 to 2017, she owned, operated, and taught at One Center Yoga in Asheville, NC. Voted “Best Yoga Teacher in Western North Carolina” by readers of Mountain Xpress four times in recent years, Cindy is dedicated to helping her students create balance, strength, and flexibility in their bodies and in their lives through the practice of asana, mindfulness meditation and the principles of yoga. Cindy strongly believes that yoga should be accessible and safe for everyone, regardless of age, ability, or injury.
Knowledgeable and approachable, she creates a safe environment in which she guides students to explore yoga’s benefits, as expressed in Sutra 1.33 of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (as translated by B.K.S. Iyengar): “Through cultivation of friendliness, compassion, joy, and indifference to pleasure and pain, virtue and vice, respectively, the consciousness becomes favorably disposed, serene and benevolent.”
Cindy studies and practices with other Iyengar teachers around the country several times a year. In addition to teaching yoga classes and private instruction, Cindy offers yoga and mindfulness workshops in the southeast, including an annual yoga and mindfulness retreat at Southern Dharma Retreat Center. A licensed pharmacist, Cindy stays current with western and eastern healing modalities.
Cindy is certified at the Intermediate Junior I level.
