One-on-One Sessions with Cyndi

Cyndi is currently accepting a limited number of private students. This focus provides for an exclusive and personal experience for the student and is remarkably effective and powerful. Work is done via skype and can also be in person. Sessions are 30-60 minutes.

Thanks to Skype, I have had the great pleasure of working privately with Cyndi to deepen and refine my meditation practice. What a gift our time together has been! Cyndi has an unerring ability to discern what's needed for the way to open in the practice. Sometimes that has meant gentle and tender support; at other times it has meant a more pointed prodding. All instruction comes with Cyndi's patented blend of humor, intelligence, compassion, and rigor.

Meditation

Cyndi, in the traditional method for learning and developing a meditation practice, is offering private meditation instruction. Meditation, well-known as a method for releasing stress, is also a simple, yet powerful way to reconnect with our own basic sanity and goodness.

Private sessions with Cyndi help you begin a meditation practice or renew your commitment to meditation practice; deepen your understanding of the practice and refine your technique for better results.

The practices Cyndi works with:

  • shamatha or mindfulness meditation
  • maitri or lovingkindness meditation
  • tonglen or exchanging self and others
  • custom-made methods for developing strength, stability, clarity, and a kind, open heart

You will work one-on-one with Cyndi once a month. She offers you practice assignments and reading for you to work with between your monthly privates.

The course is $300 for three months. This includes three private sessions with Cyndi, and the course homework (practice assignments and reading).

Yoga

Private yoga lessons in the comfort and convenience of your home. Cyndi is available via Skype which has proven to be an effective way for privates in your home.

These private lessons are  particularly useful for those with questions about their current practice. Cyndi can help you modify your practice; refine and improve your alignment; connect the dots of confusion by helping you deconstruct obstacles, and, in general, give you new ways to move your practice forward. If you don’t like practicing in a group, or your schedule doesn’t allow it, this is a great way to do your own personal practice with a private teacher.

The course is $400 and includes three monthly privates (one per month) with Cyndi along with course work including personalized sequences she’s created for you and reading.

Coaching for Yoga Teachers

The best yoga teachers, grounded in method and technique, are able to spontaneously offer each student a personal and beneficial yoga experience.  Realizing this level of potent teaching requires a lot of practice based on targeted, insightful feedback from a masterful, compassionate teacher.

Cyndi works with both new and seasoned teachers, identifying their obstacles and offering bespoke solutions.

New Teachers will gain a better understanding of what it takes to create a class, communicate effectively with students, and grow their client base.

Seasoned teachers will be offered exercises to get unstuck and discover fresh approaches to their current offering.  Learn to clarify your vision and develop practical ways of manifesting that vision through your own personalized instructions and creative sequencing.

Sessions with Cyndi include a diverse range of issues, such as:

  • how to get more students
  • how to teach inversions
  • how to work with a difficult student
  • how to manage a mixed level class
  • how to create contracts
  • how to teach without props
  • how to evolve creative and sensible sequencing
  • how to find your own inspiring language
  • how to maintain your personal practice and motivation

After graduating from OM yoga Teacher Training, I found 'the public' presented some new challenges. Via our Skype tutorial, Cyndi thoughtfully gave me practical advice, further reading suggestions and a little boost to my confidence so I could proceed. In the future, I will not hesitate to book another tutorial with Cyndi, who can access her vast teaching experience to offer detailed and intuitive guidance for all my questions and challenges. Namaste!
