Meet All That Matters yogi Cindy Butera and enjoy learning a little more about her as we have!
What attracted you to yoga? Why did you start?
I have done everything from aerobics and running to lifting weights and spinning, but wanted a more total body workout without putting stress on one area of my body. Plus, I love the outfits!
What is your favorite type or style of yoga and why?
I love going to Jessie’s Purna Yoga classes. She really helped me to understand what alignment means in the postures. Also, she taught me that it is not a bad thing to use a block. If you are doing the pose correctly, you probably need a block.
What keeps you doing yoga?
I feel much better after I have done a yoga class than when I first walk in. I want to always stay active.
What is your favorite yoga pose and why?
Savasana– Class is over!
What other activities do you enjoy?
I have a pool in my backyard and love to swim.

I like to read murder mysteries, especially James Patterson. I love scary movies without blood, like “Paranormal Activity”.
