Our History

compasAfter Marty died in 2011, Cindy continued their dream of providing a sanctuary for the Dalton community, but her vision and dreams continued to grow. In August 2012, Cindy began plans to construct a center focused around health and wellbeing. For Cindy and Marty, a center focused on wellbeing was the next step in their lifelong service and dedication to the health and wellbeing of children. Wrens Nest expands that service from specializing in children and provides the opportunity to serve all individuals in need of seeking, stretching, and soaring.

Cindy arrived at the concept of Wrens Nest Center for Wellbeing, not only through her life of service in healthcare, but also through her own personal yoga journey. Cindy found her way to her mat in 2009 and claims that it is this practice that helped her through the death of her husband and the loss of her best friend. It is now Cindy’s pleasure to share her practice with all who wish to participate. Cindy is a 500 hour, 200 hour experienced yoga teacher and a certified yoga therapist. In 2014, Cindy completed an 800-hour Professional Yoga Therapy training program through Etowah Valley Yoga, a member school of the International Association of Yoga Therapists. In addition, is she is a 500 hour registered yoga teacher, a 200 hour experienced yoga teacher and a registered prenatal yoga teacher certified through Yoga Alliance. She is also a licensed bodyART educator and is one of only a handful of professionals in Georgia who hold a Certified Yoga Therapist certificate from the International Association of Yoga Therapists.

Cindy is very grateful for the collaboration and participation of her advisory board, and all who share her passion and inspiration for a Center for Wellbeing in Dalton, GA. It is her hope to develop a collaborative group with a variety of expertise and skills to help individuals in their wellbeing. In addition to the yoga classes taught by Cindy, Wrens Nest provides workshops, classes and events taught and led by many other individuals, all with the goal of complete wellness and balance of the mind, body and spirit. Wrens Nest will continue to seek new and innovative ways to help you develop and maintain a balanced and healthy life.
