Calm the Mind, Heal the Body, Lighten the Spirit…
Yes, we are OPEN!
To all of the students who came to practice at the old Breathe space, who shared their laughter, tears, joys, happiness, fears and love – I can’t wait for you to see the new Breathe! I have poured my heart and soul into every little detail and I think you will find it even more special than the old space. To all of the NEW students who will find themselves at Breathe, I can’t wait to meet you! There is a new member special – 20 days of unlimited yoga for $20 – so that we can get to know eachother. This will give you an opportunity to try several types of classes as well as different teachers. I hope you can find a yoga hOMe here…
Please see the schedule page and know I will be adding classes, events and workshops from time to time so stay tuned!
I am grateful to each and every one of you and appreciate you ALL!
Love, Peace and Namaste, Cinda

Hatha Yoga, 60 minutes, 75°
A general yoga class for any level. Basic pranayama (breathing) technique is cued throughout as well as a wide variety of asanas (poses) to explore the amazing physical benefits of yoga. This is a great class to learn the different poses as well as correct alignment. Become comfortable with doing yoga while building strength and flexibility.
Gentle Hatha Yoga, 60 minutes, 75°
Especially good for beginners as well as anyone who wants a more “chill” class to relax in while stretching and releasing tension in both the body and the mind. There are not as many standing asanas (poses) as a Hatha class and inversions aren’t usually cued.
SlowFlow Yoga, 60 minutes, 80°
Great for Intermediate students who have a basic knowledge of the different poses and are ready to begin to link them together with breath for a more energetic practice. Students are set free to flow on their own a few times during the class, flows are shorter than a Vinyasa class.
Fully Led SlowFlow Yoga/Slowburn, 60 minutes, 80°
Same as above, but every pose is cued so there is no having to remember the flow! No yogi left behind!!! The Slowburn class is very similar to a fully led slow flow, but with longer held postures and more alignment cues.
Vinyasa Yoga, 60-75 minutes, 90°
A more vigorous form of flow yoga than above, with longer flows and inversions/arm balances (optional). This class is also combined with fun, energetic music. Good knowledge of the poses is suggested, but if you are in good physical shape, it’s fun sometimes to just jump in and try! (Note: Power Vinyasa is 75 minutes)
Yin Yoga, 60 minutes, 72°
A slower paced yoga, where postures are held for a longer period of time, sometimes 5 minutes, targeting connective tissue that isn’t normally exercised in other forms of yoga.
My teacher Dharma Mittra teaches that stress is the cause of injury and illness, and that we must find ways to be better balanced. Many of us are walking around exhausted, not getting the valuable sleep we need at night. This guided form of relaxation removes tension and fatigue in the physical body, relieves depression and anxiety, rejuvenates and energizes the entire system, boosts the body’s natural healing ability, and normalizes the circulatory system. A 45 minute Yoga Nidra is like getting several hours of sleep! It is through this practice that one can gradually come to recognize that you are so much more than the body or the mind. Upon waking, one returns feeling deeply refreshed and rejuvenated. This is a VERY accessible form of meditation to practice.
Yoga Nidra, sometimes referred to as ‘yogic sleep,’ is a restorative meditation that guides you into conscious awareness of each part of the body for deep and effortless relaxation. Yoga Nidra induces a deep state of relaxation and inner awareness. This nidra is led by Cinda, and is in the lineage of Sri Dharma Mittra. The first half of class is yin yoga, followed by nidra. You may just walk out without your shoes… 😉

Sunday, October 8, 12:30
Learn the basics, or revisit them if you are experienced! If you’ve ever been in class and wondered where this or that should be, this class is for you! This is for ALL yogis – beginner and up! This is a workshop format sprinkled with Q&A about poses, breath work and more!
Inversions & Arm Balances
Friday, October 6, 6:30pm
Beginner to advanced, there is something for everyone! As many of you know, this is Cinda’s passion and she is very good at teaching these poses. If you struggle with these poses, let’s break them down together with true alignment and proper instruction.
These poses are so much fun, but you have to start the journey. Many struggle with getting into these poses without fear, mostly because we don’t know how to do it safely by aligning your body and supporting your core.
Inversions, psychologically, allow us to see things from a different perspective. Emotionally, they guide energy of the pelvis toward the heart center, enabling self exploration and inner growth. Physically, they stimulate the immune and endocrine systems, nourishing the brain and organs, as well as release tension in the neck and spine. Let go of fear and bring your playful heart!
Saturday, October 7th & 21st at 1:30pm
This is the GOAT!!! (Greatest Of All Time) Join City Girls Farm and Cinda Lark for an all levels slow flow followed by restorative yoga with special furry guests! You are welcome to pat them, hug them, hold them and love them. A truly unique way to connect to nature in the early morning.
1st & 3rd Saturdays of the month
(October dates: 7th & 21st)
Every day, our teens are struggling with challenges we can’t always understand. Many do not know how to cope with the pressures of school, family, athletics and relationships. There are innumerable benefits to yoga, both physical and emotional, and yoga gives students fundamentals from which to grow from. From breathing and meditation techniques to physical poses that will help strengthen and improve flexibility, I am very excited to offer yoga to teens. Being a mother to two, I have seen first-hand how much yoga is needed.

Owner, E-RYT 200, E-RYT 500, LOAY 800
Cinda’s passion for yoga actually began when she took her first Vinyasa class, a friend practically had to drag her! About half way through the class, she knew there was no going back and this was to be a vital part of her soul for the rest of her life…
Cinda is a former gymnast, dancer and diver, so naturally, vinyasa yoga first challenged her with the physicality of the practice. She felt immediately at home with the physical practice but soon realized there was so much more to this practice, a mindful and spiritual side that came as a pleasant surprise and affected her life in a truly positive way almost immediately. She believes that yoga gives you a beautiful path to follow to find peace and calm in a tumultuous world. She entered teacher training with Andrea von Behren for her 200 hour, amazed at how the learning continues with studying and reading. Craving to know more about this ancient philosophy, she continued her studies with Alan Haras at Hamsa Yoga and then went on to study with the legendary Sri Dharma Mittra in New York City where she got her 500 hour Life Of A Yogi training. Finding Dharmaji and the LOAY program showed her a deep connection to yoga that she had been searching for. In May of 2017, she traveled back to New York City to study with Dharma once again for and completed her 800 hour level training. Cinda leads a 200 Hour Yoga Alliance registered teacher training program.
Cinda loves to teach a variety of yoga and is trained in many… from the grace and fluidity of a Vinyasa to the alignment in Hatha and Ashtanga, Yin as well as Gentle, Restorative yoga is ever so important to go deep into our connective tissue as well as counter all of the craziness in our lives! Dharma Yoga is the most special to Cinda and she incorporates his teaching into every one of her classes. Yoga Nidra – the sleep yoga is also a new favorite and is also learned from Sri Dharma Mittra. She also specializes in Inversions and Arm Balances, some of her favorite moments are when a student comes down from their first inversion, inspired and in awe and previously unaware of their own ability and strength from within. Partner Yoga is also a passion, to move with a loved one, friend or even stranger through this practice reminds us that we are all connected, never alone. “We are like the roots of trees, connected beneath the surface of the forest… unseen support that comes from each other, this is a comforting thought!” CL
She is a mom to two beautiful children, and she will tell you that being a mom and teaching yoga are the two most rewarding jobs and she is grateful to have been graced with the ability to do both.
Yoga TeacherEverybody comes to their mats with different intentions – mine was for self-improvement, and what I found was self-acceptance. Realizing how much the practice of yoga had transformed my life, I wanted to share this passion with other people. I took my yoga teacher training with Andrea von Behren in 2011. Teaching from my own practice, I offer compassion and a heart felt energy to my students, encouraging them to find their inner child. I have been blessed and fortunate enough that my work takes me to India a couple of times a year and can practice with masters there. I am looking forward to seeing you on your mat at Breathe! Namaste.
Elena is certified YT-200. She has obtained her certification at Karma Yoga, Bloomfield Hills.
She is passionate about sharing her love of yoga with others on and off the mat. She believes that anyone can greatly benefit from practicing yoga physically, emotionally and spiritually at any stage of life.
Elena is specialized in teaching Hatha and Gentle Yoga, as well as advanced breathing techniques. Finding inner piece, a mind and body connection is what brings her on a mat every day and makes her excited to share with others.
Residing in West Bloomfield, Elena works as a full time realtor. In her free time, besides practicing yoga, she enjoys spending time on a lake with her husband, reading and traveling.
