Cynthia Olinga Ibáñez
Cynthia loves movement, but finds stillness fascinating as well. They are both coming together in Embodied Yin™ and it is one of the reasons Cynthia is completely in love with it.
She have danced for 15 years: Contemporary dance (Limón technique and less of Graham), dance improvisation, contact improvisation, modern and lyric jazz. And of course, practiced yoga on and off since she was 19. When Cynthia teaches, she wants to make yoga inclusive for everyone and to create a safe space, where everyone feels what needs to be felt, where you are allowed to be you, where you can express yourself and just be, are of uttermost importance.
Cynthia has a passionate interest for sound, for vibrations, for the breath, for therapeutic yoga and its approach to asanas as well as in movement, for movement therapies and techniques. These approaches have helped her to overcome a lot of injuries and pain, and keep her on her path of constant inquiry and discovery.
Cynthia is a certified yoga teacher in Hatha Yoga since 2017 and has during the last two years continued to deepen her studies in both Yin yoga, Healing yoga for refugees, and she is specialized in Yoga for stress, burnout, chronic fatigue syndrome as well as a Yoga for Arthritis Level 1 teacher. She's currently studying Parayoga with Rod Stryker as well as Advanced Yoga trainings in Satu Tuomela´s Authentic Flow school. Cynthia teaches gentle Hatha Yoga, Slow Flow, Restorative Yoga, Embodied Yin™ and Yoga Nidra.
