200+-hour Yoga certified through Maha Yoga Center, Bridgewater

Cindi has been teaching fitness since 1995; her first certifications are with ACE and AFAA. She taught step, cardio, circuit training, spin, yoga, pilates. She also taught toddlers fitness 🙂 She still teaches yoga (Hatha, Vinyasa and Ashtanga) and the pilates mat sequence with ballet barre. Cindi taught yoga, vinyasa, pilates and fitness classes at Bridgewater State University for six years and loved every minute of it. “I was invited to teach in Cambodia (haven’t gotten there yet!) and have taught yoga for over 100 students from ages 12 to 26 more than once as an ambassador for the University.” Cindi was a spin master trainer with Patti Mantia of Brockton and received her highest grade for her personal training course in 1998.
Cindi has a BS in Economics and got halfway through her MBA but gave up the pursuit to open a gift store with her family, the Old Company Store, Wareham. She worked in Private Banking/Trust Accounts when she graduated and took banking classes for three years before leaving Boston to work with her family and sell soap, tea, and gift baskets.
When she was in 6th grade, her guidance counselor asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up, and she said, “a teacher.” Cindi didn’t know that she would be teaching fitness, at the time she had thought maybe high school English! “I love coaching because empowering people to find their best selves inspires and humbles me… my clients and classmates often bring me to tears with their accomplishments. Being witness to their successes leaves me speechless.”
