Hi, I'm Cindy Wargo a certified yoga teacher, and owner of cindywargo.com. I've been practicing yoga in Northern Virginia since 2001, and teaching regularly since 2006.
As a former owner of Sacred Well Yoga Studio, I believe in the power of an in-person experience. However, I am so grateful to be able to create a virtual classroom for those who have moved away or simply can't make it to my in-person classes and workshops. My in-person classes and workshops are at Sun and Moon Yoga Studio in Arlington, btw, if you want to see me there!
I was originally drawn to yoga because I loved stretching after a run (actually the only part I liked about running was the stretching after), and my understanding was yoga was a class full of stretching. However, for me, it wasn't love at first pose, as with so many other teachers I know. Instead, I found it weird and uncomfortable. But I did enjoy the stretching and I slept great the night after practice, which was no small feat for a mom with an active toddler at the time! My initial discomfort in yoga practice gives me a great understanding of students who are new to practice. I do my best to make my classes super-accessible and welcoming, not weird or intimidating.
I am super-excited to have recently received my Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist Certificate through Yoga International. I can't wait to share the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda with everyone. I love the way Ayurveda helps us move in harmony with the cycles of nature and life. I incorporate Ayurveda into my classes, write about them in my newsletter, and will soon be offering consultations, so my students can live better through this life-changing science.
When not teaching, practicing, or reading about Yoga and Ayurveda, I also enjoy cooking, gardening, watching all kinds of sports and hanging out with my family.
