Last Saturday marked redemption for Team MPR after a disappointing 2nd place win last year at Rider University.  We had our sites set on the NABJJF JiuJItsu Tournament this year and many of our athletes stepped up to the challenge.  After our wins began pilling up we could feel our margin of victory begin pulling away from the pack.  We had so many of our fighters step up and battle tough.  We compelled so many top 3 finishes and 1st place victories it was tough to keep track.  The competition was tough, but everyones training and preparation showed through.  Congrats to Team MPR and all of our supporters!  In addition to our 1st Place Adult Championship the MPR Kids took home an amazing 3rd Place Team Victory.  It was an amazing day for all of our athletes!

BIO:

Cindy first began practicing yoga in 2006 when she discovered a yoga workout within the first P90X series. While she did not initially appreciate the 1.5-hour yoga routine, she eventually grew to love it and found herself seeking more yoga knowledge and new challenges. Through her exploration of yoga and her initial self-taught/developed practice, Cindy quickly discovered her love of Vinyasa Flow and her passion for inversions and arm balances. Cindy is also a yoga-anatomy enthusiast and enjoys studying various muscle groups utilized in different poses so that she can create specific strength-building techniques to help make advanced poses more accessible to her students.

When not on the mat, Cindy works as a paramedic and has found yoga extremely helpful in her ability to combat stress and maintain physical fitness so that she may serve members of the community to the best of her ability. Cindy became a Certified Yoga Instructor in 2014 in hopes of sharing the many benefits of yoga with others.
