Cynthia enjoys combining several ancient and modern healing systems for health of body, mind and spirit, including Yoga, Energy Medicine, Tai Chi and Qigong. She began practicing yoga in 1989, when she was working professionally as a Landscape Architect for Sasaki Associates in Watertown Mass. “Yoga became a very important thread in the tapestry of my life, at times becoming a safety line.” She began teaching creative movement for the Jewish Community Center of Northern VA in 2002, yoga at Sun and Moon Yoga Studio in 2003 (completing their 500 hour Teacher training program), and many free classes to support Girl Scouts. She has studied around the world with various teachers including Baxter Bell, Barbara Benagh, Kaustab Desikachar, John Friend, Anodea Judith, Doug Keller, Neel Kulcarni, Tias Little, Desiree Rumbaugh, Erich Schiffman, John Schumacher, Rod Stryker and Rodney Yee. She began studying Qigong with Pauline Reid (a Peaceable Dragon Teacher) in 2012 and recently went though Level1 Training with Roger Jahnke of the IIQTC (Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi) and looks forward to completing the remaining levels soon.
