I had been living on the same street as Sacred Garden Yoga for 5 years. I’d pass it everyday and think to myself, “I should stop in there some time.” Per usual, I procrastinated and never made it in. It wasn’t until this past fall that I realized that I was sitting on the same spot, on the same couch, upset about the same things. I felt like I was running in a hamster wheel and going no where. I, myself, am a clinical therapist and felt at a loss for what to do. I was attracted to the Sacred Alchemy Program because it it was bigger than therapy or a meal plan or a personal trainer. This program shifted my perspective on life. I have learned that I don’t need to sit on the couch and wait for life to happen to me. Life happens FROM me. Cindy is so patient and kind. I was able to share things with her that I haven’t been able to put into words before. She gently guided me through a personal inventory and invited me to forgive myself. I literally have a lightness in my heart now. I can never thank Cindy, the Sacred Alchemy program, and the Sacred Garden community. I am the happiest I’ve ever been.
“When I started yoga with Cindy, I had been diagnosed with severe chronic migraines and fibromyalgia. I felt as though my body had lost everything it once had. I was weak and painful; it hurt to move, to even bend my arms or legs, where I was once flexible and agile. I couldn’t help feeling as though I had been physically betrayed. Because of Cindy and her gifts as a teacher, both my mind and body have been freed of the weight of living with chronic pain. I have not felt this level of confidence and happiness in years, and I know it is due to my decision to return to yoga.”
