Pilgrimage of the Heart Yoga > Instructors > Sydney Cohen, RYT 200

Sydney grew up very active, playing various sports and dancing ballet and jazz. She graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2007 with a double minor in Group Fitness Instruction and Personal Training. She trained and taught group fitness classes in the Bay Area until a back injury cut her time at the gym short. Diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease and Facet Joint Arthritis, she moved back to her hometown of San Diego to heal. She took up yoga, learning Bikram, Hatha, Vinyasa, Iyengar and Ashtanga. She has taken classes from some of the top instructors from San Diego to New York and is delighted to have the opportunity to teach the community all that insight yoga has brought to her own life.

Sydney’s Class Style: Sydney is trained in the Ashtanga and Iyengar methods and utilizes both in her instruction with Vinyasa style flow. All levels are welcome. Expect detailed instruction on proper form and alignment as you move breath to movement. Also learn how to engage bandhas effectively and explore more challenging postures of yoga.
