CEO & Founder, (Life Coach - Teacher - Speaker), CDC®, RYT®
Cindy Gunraj, CEO & founder of StillnessBlooms has successfully overcome many life transitions. Divorce was the catalyst for her major life shifts. Growing up, Cindy was immersed in a culture where women act as caretakers in the home but are taught to suppress their voice and desires. Cindy’s time as a performer allowed her to develop her communication skills, which led to awakening a new voice and identity, and shedding the limiting cultural beliefs.
On her journey working across multiple industries (global health, pharmaceutical medical education, real estate, and yoga), she met many women who were struggling to listening to themselves in order to truly live a wholehearted and authentic life. This paved the way to the creation of StillnessBlooms, a safe space to help empower women to overcome their limiting beliefs.
Cindy attained her BA in Management and Economics, from Goucher College. She is a Life Coach, Certified Divorce Coach (CDC®) and RYT® Yoga Certified teacher. She is also a professional speaker who specializes in presentations and her work has empowered hundreds of individuals. She’s author of two 1# best-seller books called “Winning Your Parents’ Approval for Divorce” and “Listen to Yourself.” She’s spoken at the United Nations, Unicef, Dress for Success Worldwide, and Hewlett Packard. Cindy loves hiking, meditation, and spending time with her partner David and corgi, Joy.
