Ciara Cunningham

Love Warriors Yoga


My name is Ciara Marie Cunningham and I have been practicing yoga since 2005 when I took my first classes at the CNY Yoga Center (now Dharma Yoga Syracuse) with Saraswati Om. At the time I was an antsy teenager struggling with asthma and anxiety, and yoga provided an undeniable, almost-instant relief. Fast forward to Glasgow, Scotland in 2014: as my husband was undergoing treatment for a brain tumor, I found a renewed passion for yoga and general wellness through movement and a resolution to share that passion with others. Since I was introduced to Ashtanga yoga in Scotland and began practicing with teachers Kyle Gray, Gemma Maryan, and Colette Forrest-Bosque, I recommitted to daily practice that now incorporates strong influences from both Ashtanga and yin yoga. Upon moving back to Syracuse in 2016, I completed my RYT-200 Teacher Training through the Boston Yoga School’s adjunct program at O Yoga Syracuse and shifted my life whole-heartedly towards making movement more accessible to everyone in my community. I've studied with teachers like Ame Wren, Kevin Courtney, Josh Summers and Jason Crandell -- I'm always looking to further my education and knowledge of the human body and how to provide a challenging  and balanced class to my students.


In 2016 I finished my Usui-Method Reiki Level 1 training and completed my Level 2 training in 2017. I currently teach private and small group yoga lessons in and around Syracuse, and am available for special bookings and events. I teach regular classes in studios around Syracuse, along with teaching yoga classes open to veterans, their families and staff at the VA Hospital in Syracuse through Connected Warriors. I teach regular classes at at O Yoga (Syracuse) and Vyana Yoga, as well as being founding instructor at Barre3 Syracuse. You can find my full calendar below!

Going into business with myself has been an exciting, busy adventure ~ I appreciate your patience as I build this site and get the rest of the website running smoothly. If you have any questions that haven't been answered here, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
