Chintamani Kansas

Yoga, Pilates, Meditation, Myofascial Release

 

Once upon a time, I discovered Yoga in a gym, and quickly realized how simple, yet powerful Yoga can be for bringing balance and healing.  Within a few weeks, I began to feel improvements in body and mind.  Yoga has helped me overcome trauma and injuries, and redirect my life towards health and happiness.  Once I experienced the wellness benefits of yoga for myself, I knew I had to share Yoga with everyone!

 

I have been studying and teaching Classic and Specialty Yoga for over 15 years.  I also incorporate Mat Pilates, Myofascial Release and Meditation.

 

I am a longtime faculty member of the mang'Oh Yoga 200 Teacher Training where I teach the art of yoga and directly mentor budding new teachers.

You're in Good Hands

 

I love learning and continue my education regularly, so I can be of the best service to others

 

I have studied with Physical Therapists and Psychotherapists as well as Yoga and Pilates leaders.

What's a Chintamani?  How'd You Get Your Name?

I was not raised with yoga, but I like to joke that my first yoga training was in utero!  For a few months, my parents practiced bhakti (devotional) yoga in an ashram in Texas.  Just before I was born, they decided to return to their classical Midwest American backgrounds and moved back to Kansas.  But they named me "Chintamani" in memory of their special time in the spiritual community.

"Chintamani" (pronounced chin-TOM-uh-knee) is a sanskrit word, which has multiple meanings.  My parents say it means that "the soul is like a diamond:  clear and indestructible."  In Buddhism, Chintamani is "a jewel which removes obstacles to enlightenment."  

Chintamani is a long name, so many people prefer to call me "C" for short.
