In 2016, Cynthia focused on the power of her breath, meditation and Yoga to overcome a life threatening health crisis. Now fully recovered, she is compelled to share this modality with others through teaching.
After completing a basic 200 hour Prana Yoga teacher Training with Dr. Jeff Migdow, at the Princeton Center for Yoga and Health, a sacred space created by Deborah Metzger, she is looking forward to sharing her passion with others. Her professional background is as a licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist, practicing since 1982. As part of the practice of massage and bodywork, she instructs clients in exercises to maintain the results of massage and bodywork therapy. Similarly, Yoga is a modality with a wide range of applications and easily modified for people of all ages. She is also a healthcare educator for Penn Med Princeton Health for the Department of Community Wellness. Besides teaching yoga, you may see her at wellness festivals around the central NJ region sharing her enthusiasm for healthy living with others.
