Hi, I'm Cinthia!
I’m a yoga teacher and I’ve been teaching yoga for almost a decade.
If you’ve tried everything to relieve your back pain (and who hasn’t?), being active is a non-negotiable step for improvement - but it shouldn’t feel uncomfortable or painful.
You're tired of hearing, trying, and failing with everyone's advice on how to get that pain relief you so desire.
No one understands your pain and you're suffering in silence.
You know deep inside you there has to be more.
I help people like you, a warrior that is prepared to fight and do everything to get better. You don’t have to do it alone, together we will figure out what you can do, respecting your body limitations, to move with ease and do what you love.
When you learn...
...and get familiar with movements that are pain-free you will be amazed how much you can do with your body.
Moving your body in a way that is pain free and feels good will transform your life...
... leading to a happier YOU, and allowing you to do what you love and enjoy each and every moment of your life with your loved ones.
Let’s face it - back pain can be daunting and disabling. It disturbs and disrupts you day and night, all the pills you’re taking aren’t doing anything for your pain and, instead, can make you sick.
You’re forced to take days off at work because you can’t sit or walk for an extended period of time. Your pain is unbearable!
Despite the fact that movement is the best remedy for back health, people are still afraid of moving their bodies and worrying they can make things even worse.
If you’re fed up with struggling to find back pain relief, Feel Good Again will change all that.
I discovered yoga in my early 20’s as a way to move my body. It wasn’t until later that I understood that yoga is much more than a body movement, it works on all aspects of the person: the physical, vital, mental, emotional, psychic and spiritual.
After 10 years of practice, I decided to go deeper into my studies and did the teacher training at the motherland of yoga - India.
It was also in the same year that I graduated as an Ayurvedic Therapist.
The disciplines of Yoga and Ayurveda allowed me to understand that people are different, each with their own characteristics, backgrounds, lifestyles and illnesses. No one symptom has the same root cause so they have to be treated differently.
When it comes to back pain the same logic applies; the symptoms can be the same for different people but the causes could be different.
Where it all got started...
At the same time I was starting my yoga journey and attending classes regularly, my mom was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in her ovaries. I didn’t acknowledge it at the time, but now I know that the practice brought me the peace of mind I needed to deal with the hard moment I was living.
During that time, my mom started alternative/natural therapies alongside chemotherapy. I saw firsthand that natural treatments were powerful and they were helping in my mom’s recovery, and she became interested in holistic medicine.
My mom died a couple of years later because of an unsuccessful surgery and mishandling of her illness, but not before I was able to witness the important contribution that natural therapies had on her.
Fast forward a few years...
After leaving my home country of Brazil and living abroad for 5 years, I was feeling miserable and decided to go to India to learn Ayurveda - ancient Indian medicine.
Ayurveda taught me to see the individual as a whole, not only the symptom of the problem like Western medicine does and it works a lot on the prevention as well as the cure.
Everything changed. My life transformed and my perspective on life changed. I became vegetarian and a yoga teacher as well.
In the years following my journey to India I taught yoga in Brazil and now in the U.K. where I currently live.
It was only when I worked with a man suffering from fibromyalgia and from other chronic health issues that I decided to change my way of teaching completely.
Believe it or not, after only one session he was able to take his first uninterrupted sleep in many, many years. Just by controlling his breathing.
After I learnt how many people suffer from back pain and receive unnecessary care and surgery, I realised I could do much more with my lessons and help different types of people.
Yoga is NOT about strenuous and contortionist poses.
Yoga is about being respectful to yourself and others.
Yoga brings you calmness.
Yoga makes you aware of your body and its limitations.
Every day, I teach determined people like you who, with the right support, plan and drive, can accomplish anything they desire.
