One of the primary intentions of a yoga practice is to help us feel more connected to ourselves through the experience of our body, but sometimes a yoga class can leave us more confused and disconnected. We don't immediately know where our various body parts are (what is a sit bone?), what the words mean (what language is that anyway, why aren't the poses always in English?) and whether all bodies can and should move in the way the teacher is suggesting?
Our Yoga Fundamentals workshop will explain this and much more. If you are interested in learning the how to do basic yoga postures and common sequences, as well as why it matters that your awareness is embedded into the experience, then come along prepared to move a bit, learn a bit and grow a bit. Please feel free to submit requests or questions beforehand. Both beginners and more experienced students welcome.
A fiercely passionate and soulful teacher, Cassie’s classes are a sweaty, fun mash-up of refined alignment-based vinyasa, as well as the quieter, nourishing practices of yin yoga and meditation. After many years living and teaching in Hong Kong, Cassie returned home to Australia and set up home in Melbourne, and now Byron Bay. Cassie is an Anusara Inspired teacher and has been teaching for over 10 years. Her primary teachers are Anusara founder John Friend and her main teacher and friend, Patrick Creelman, who has greatly influenced her ‘wild yet steady’ style. She has also had the pleasure of studying with Sarah Powers, Rod Stryker, Doug Keller, Ana Forrest, Shiva Rae, Baron Baptiste and Duncan Peak.
