Yoga & Ayurveda in the Augusta, GA area
Cassandra is a clinical practitioner of Ayurveda, which is the ancient Indian medicinal science that prescribes yoga and meditation as treatments for specific disease. Being a clinical practitioner of Ayurveda, Cassandra has more than three times the training of a yoga therapist! She teaches meditative, rhythmic, and love-powered Vinyasa yoga in the Prana Flow style as well as a more gentle Kripalu “Hatha” yoga. She is a Kripalu 500-hr certified yoga instructor, as well as a 300-hr graduate of the Prana Flow Vinyasa training with Shiva Rea. She has also completed Prenatal training with Jane Austin and Restorative Yoga Teacher training with Judith Lasater at Yoga Tree in San Francisco for a total of 1,000 certification hours in yoga. Cassandra is thoroughly trauma-informed and specializes in alternative and complementary treatment of trauma, anxiety, and depression. She has been a student of yoga since age 14, practicing for about 20 years, and teaching for 14 years to date.
Cassandra is an Ayurvedic Health Counselor with over 1800 hours of clinical training hours from the California College of Ayurveda. This training includes the art of applied yoga, meditation, herbal, lifestyle, and dietary therapeutics for medicinal purposes.
The intensity of Cassandra’s practice is in large part owed to volunteering at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, MA. In 2009, she spent a full year immersed in an intensive live-in program where she had the opportunity to study with many world-renowned teachers from many healing traditions. During this time Cassandra also developed a deep off-the-mat yoga practice, learning how to use yoga to actually heal her whole life. Her most influential teachers are Mark Whitwell and Shiva Rea, who both espouse a breath-centered and life-affirming practice. Yoga allows you to “have your life!” in the words of Mark Whitwell. She invites student-friends to embrace the healing practice of yoga as she continues on her own path.
