Though reviews on the yoga studio are still growing, five Citysearchers give Sacred Garden Yoga an average of 4.5 stars:
- The studio space is so cute and has great energy! The classes are intimate but be prepared to get a good work out as well. I love that the classes also incorporate the mind, body, spirit connection so that it becomes more than just physical exercise. – yogamom

She’s fused that passion with yoga instruction by leading retreats in the mountains of North Georgia, North Carolina, and back home in Peru. Whether outdoors or within her pastel-green workout studio, Cindy and fellow instructors lead non-competitive sessions that foster lifelong friendships. Their group, private, and prenatal sessions emphasize proper body alignment and breath work. Students can also discover healing with reiki and reflexology treatments and workshops on subjects such as meditation and painless band-aid removal.
