Cindy’s teaching is focused on the restorative aspects of yoga, meeting each student where they are regardless of experience. She has been practicing yoga since high school, completed her initial teacher training at the Kusum Institute in 2014, and her 500-hour certification at the Asheville Yoga Center in 2018. Cindy is continually inspired by her students and it is her hope that the practice is a doorway to inner peace, insight and balance.
Our teaching is guided by safety, compassion and joy, and we are committed to providing accessible yoga and meditation classes to everyone with an interest in improved health. Current research indicates that yoga can reduce stress, help relieve anxiety, depression and insomnia, and improve overall physical fitness, strength and flexibility. There is truly a yoga practice for everyone. All that is needed is a place to begin.
“The light that yoga sheds on life is something special. It is transformative. It does not just change the way we see things; it transforms the person who sees.” ~ B.K.S. Iyengar
My yoga journey began and continues with my mentor and teacher Penny Kusum Clum. Her guidance and inspiration have profoundly affected my life, and Light in the Dark Yoga is possible because of her encouragement. There are other countless individuals to thank for this gift of yoga. The following are just a few of the teachers who have made such a difference: Pattabhi Jois, B.K.S. Iyengar, David Swenson, Richard Freeman, Jack Kornfield, Sharon Salzberg, Ram Das, Krishna Das and all of my students.
