S. Cecilia Zuniga
A bilingual yogini and Reiki practitioner, S. Cecilia Zuniga draws inspiration from various healing modalities and traditions to create a wellness experience that is in accordance to the energetics for a given time and season. Contingent on the style, a typical class might integrate alignment based seasonal Yoga inspired by the moon phases. More recently she's been interested in the power of healing sound vibrations and also integrating it with her offerings.
Be it a yoga class, an art project, or a way of life, Cecilia has always been inspired by ritual, the esoteric and nature. She credits her upbringing in magical and enchanting places such as New Mexico & Mexico.
Her background is in design, arts and technology. A classic “ENFP”, she is a people-centered creator with a focus on possibilities and a contagious enthusiasm for new ideas, people and activities.
Cecilia is certified as 200 E-RYT/500 RYT. Her introduction to Yoga was through the Greenhouse Holistic community of diverse Yoga lineages (Hatha, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Vinyasa).
