Just had my first Yoga Session with Cyndi. I have never had much luck with yoga. But this class changed all that.
I have arthritis and back issues and this was a very relaxing yet also wonderful stretching and balancing class.
Cyndi explained everything so well. She was also very caring in her manner about my individual issues. I was almost completely pain-free for the next couple of days. But even more than that I felt so spiritually grounded and calm. This was exactly what I was looking for. If you are someone who can’t do a very strenuous yoga but would like to have the mind, spirit, body benefits of Yoga, this might just be the class for you. I highly recommend it.
Beth found yoga over 20 years ago as a young mother looking for a way to relax and have an hour once a week to herself. Since that time yoga came and went in her life. In 2012 she once again found herself on her mat again. Beth completed 200 Hr CYT training at the Fox Valley Yoga Teacher Training in Batavia, IL in 2016 with Karen Weber. She and her husband, two dogs and two cats moved to Chattanooga in September 2016 in search of a change of scenery and more fulfilling way of life. She completed a 300 hr Shamanic Yoga teacher training with Dolly Kaup in April 2018.
Beth’s classes focus on integrating breath and motion and settling the mind. She believes that any Body can do yoga because yoga goes beyond the body into the soul and the spirit. She is also passionate about using sound and vibration in her healing and yoga practices. Many of her classes finish with a mini version of the Sound Baths she presents around the area to leave her students refreshed and rejuvenated in mind, body and spirit.
“I came back to yoga in 2012 with a beginner’s mind and try to keep returning to that in my personal practice as well as when I am teaching. No matter how old we are or how much experience we have with something we can always find something new and continue to learn and grow.”
When not teaching or practicing yoga Beth enjoys hiking many of the beautiful trails in and around the area and dreams of hiking the Appalachian Trail. She also enjoys traveling, making things with her hands, gardening and herbalism and reading.
