“If I had to limit my advice on healthier living to just one tip, it would be simply to BREATHE PROPERLY.” – Dr. Andrew Weil
How you breathe affects every aspect of your well-being, including your digestion, sleep and even bone density. This class is designed to help you identify dysfunctional breathing patterns and learn to breathe in a way that maximizes your well-being. Open to anyone age 14 and over. Please wear clothing that is loose around the waist and ribs. Be prepared to engage in gentle movement to stretch and strengthen the primary breathing muscles. Please bring a mat and blanket or towel; a limited number of mats are available.

No prerequisites; open to anyone age 16 and over. The class will include gentle movement and requires the ability to move up and down from the floor (we will stand, sit, and lie down on the floor during classes).

Cindy is a teacher, yogi, lawyer, parent, spouse, and life-long learner who loves spending time in the forest as well as by the lake. Her diverse interests have led her to found the Chicago Street Law Project, where law students teach about practical law concepts in public high schools, as well as the St. Francis Visual Arts Program, recognized by the Art Institute of Chicago as a best-practice model of how to engage parent volunteers as art educators. Currently she teaches law-related classes for undergraduate students at Northwestern University, in Evanston, Illinois, and classes in meditation at the Wellness Center at NU. She also teaches yoga at various studios near Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, where she resides with her husband and two Labrador retrievers. Her three children and their families visit often, and especially enjoy spending time at her cabin in Eagle River. Her Ph.D. in education is from Northwestern, and her J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania School of Law.
