About Cindee

Cindee Rifkin takes her expansive knowledge of traditional yoga and revolutionizes the practices into real life skills for under justice-involved & foster kids populations, nonprofits, businesses, and individuals. It is breathwork, yoga, and meditation that led Cindee down her own healing path to become her most authentic self.  These practices clear out trauma and uncover our unique greatness. She works with each student so they can connect to their creative potential, intuition and find their purpose while teaching them how to let go of their own past traumas. Her motto is: be accountable, take action and peel away the layers of conditioning to become who you were meant to be all along.


She is certified in Hatha, Ashtanga Vinyasa and Forrest Yoga. Her journey began in 2003.  Cindee lived India and immersed herself in yoga traditions and philosophy with Shri Sheshadri and B.K.S. Iyengar – both are students of Sri Krishnamacharya. Her current primary practice is Forrest Yoga,  a healing system of yoga created by Ana Forrest.
