Cindy Phillips
Cindy is the Owner and Director of Island Yoga Space.

She discovered yoga in 1998 while searching for clarity after the loss of her father the previous year and thus views yoga as a healing art. This lead her to seek out and study with many teachers including Shiva Rea, Betsey Downing and her favorite, Seane Corn. She is grateful to ALL of the teachers who have graced and inspired her own teaching. She started instructing yoga in 2002.

Cindy guides students in Vinyasa Flow and Restorative classes with particular attention to alignment. While creatively interweaving underlying themes, poetry, and world music she encourages students to connect with their own personal core of “knowing” during practice and take this truth out into daily living.

By providing the island community with a comfortable and nurturing environment, she trusts that each student will find their inner strengths and overall well-being.

She holds a Bachelors degree in Humanities/ Performing Arts from Southern Oregon University, 200hr. Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Certification from White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara and a 200hr. Anusara Style Yoga Teacher Certification from Garden of the Heart Yoga Center in Sarasota. Cindy is a 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance.
