Yoga for chronic illness

Hi, I'm Cyndi. I'm a yoga therapist, author and motivational speaker that has used therapeutic yoga, meditation, pranayama, spirituality and nutrition to save my life—twice.

I work with modern women leading active lives that live with chronic illness, such as fibromyalgia, Covid-19, Epstein-Barr virus, mononucleosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, Lyme Disease and chronic stress. I teach methods and practices that relieve pain, reduce stress, build inner resources and outer strength naturally—without drugs or surgery!


Toward your greatest good

Not only do I have over a decade of experience teaching one-on-one therapeutic yoga, I also have the experience of living with and managing a chronic illness that has no cure.

When you work with me, we'll co-create a customized therapeutic yoga plan that addresses the anxiety, depression and grief that accompanies life with chronic illness. We’ll explore how to connect inward when you’re experiencing pain, how to handle flareups, chronic symptoms and chronic fatigue, effective relaxation methods, sleep disturbances, how to manage life when life just feels like too much and so much more.

Together, we'll find therapeutic yoga methods and techniques that work for your schedule, address your personal wellness goals and complement your current primary health care treatment(s).

Health and happiness are an inside job

Therapeutic yoga methods and practices are about developing a connection to all layers of your being—physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual—through expansion of your self-awareness.

Through practice, we cultivate acceptance of what is and feel empowered by it. We build strength to break through old patterns and past conditioning and learn from our obstacles as sacred messengers sent to direct us towards our greatest good.

By connecting inward, deeply, to your true self, you will find that everything you need to reach your wellness goals is already within you.

“After just five custom virtual sessions with Cyndi, there were very notable shifts in my mental state of mind, my physical well-being, and how my body felt overall. My chronic pain was pretty much non-existent.”
