Cindy Mastry was introduced to yoga by her Grandmother Ann Ree Colton in the 60’s, and began practicing at an early age, first with Lilias Folan on TV and with Vishnudevananda’s classic yoga text on her own. Cindy has a background in dance and also worked in the fitness industry on and off since the late seventies, always maintaining a home yoga practice. Today, focused only on Yoga, Cindy founded and is the owner of the studio. She is a registered yoga teacher through Yoga Alliance (E-RYT 500) trained in classical Ashtanga Yoga at Mount Madonna Institute in California, home of the globally respected teacher and spiritual leader Baba Hari Dass who inspires “teach to learn”. Cindy has also studied with Leslie Kaminoff, and completed Georg Feuerstein’s 800 hour History and Philosophy of Yoga Teacher Training. Her style blends knowledge learned from all her teachers to encourage practicing the principles of yoga with self awareness and balance, without competitiveness in order to understand the true essence of yoga and how to apply it to everyday life. Cindy is an instructor for the Exalted Warrior Foundation which is a yoga program designed for wounded warriors in military and veteran hospital facilities.
