Cindy von Miller RN, BSN, E-RYT 500, YACEP
My formal practice of classical yoga began in1983 in New Orleans, Louisiana, the same year I enrolled in Nursing School. The concentrative technologies of yoga are the tools that I required to excel as an Emergency/Critical care nurse. Later in life the practices kept me grounded and connected to my authenticity, despite the many ways culture and society tried to bury it deep beneath limited expectations of what it means to be woman-nurse-wife-mother.
My lifelong mission is to bring the gift of yoga into the world especially to those most in need.
With the help of a beautiful community of friends, we are doing just that!
