Cindy Beers, founder of Red Head Yoga, creates a place for people of all ages and body types to practice yoga and meditation in a safe, inviting, and authentic environment. Students experience a class which is tailored to the students’ ability, sprinkled with compassion and a touch of laughter that leaves them feeling content and at peace. Cindy’s teachings are informed from her extensive training and life experiences. She spent 18 years in the US Armed Forces and therefore has a special understanding for teaching yoga to veterans, teens, and adults living with anxiety and trauma. Cindy’s work with anxiety culminated in her recently published books “Mindful Yoga for Teen Anxiety” and “Mindful Yoga for Adult Anxiety.”

Cathy Furtado is a 200hr RYT and has loved yoga most of her life, trying different studios in her native New England. Early on Cathy knew there was something more than standing in a specific pose, yoga fed her soul. Previously relying on running and weight lifting for exercise, yoga became an alternative, stimulating her mind while becoming more in tune with her body. Cathy’s love for teaching and helping others led her to teaching yoga. Cathy hopes that her teachings will help people feel good about themselves, clear there minds so that they can see a world of endless possibilities. One of her favorite quotes: “Yoga is not about touching your toes, its about what you learn on the way down.”
