Private Yoga Lessons
I offer Four separate Private Lesson Tracks: Anxiety and Depression Management, Beginner’s Yoga Lessons, Prenatal Yoga Lessons, and Therapeutic/Transformational Yoga Lessons for times of crisis.
The Benefits of Yoga
One-on-one yoga is the best way to learn and practice this ancient technology. Private lessons are the traditional way yoga was passed down, from teacher to students. It is still the best way to have all your questions answered in the most efficient way possible and to ensure a safe and transformative practice.
Anxiety and Depression Management
Cassandra has had great success helping clients with anxiety and/or depression issues.* In order to specifically target your energetic imbalance, Cassandra will use her broad and deep knowledge of ayurveda, yoga, and meditation to customize your practice. Designing a program to help your exact imbalance is the key. Did you know that not all types of meditation are good for all people? Depending on the practice, meditation can even be harmful. There are many forms of meditation and yoga, all with very specific, scientific purposes.
What Is Ayurveda?
It takes great expertise to understand that some techniques may aggravate your unique situation in a mild to severe way, while others will help tremendously. Cassandra can target your exact imbalance with her extensive knowledge and help in ways that you never thought possible. This is the core of vedic knowledge, which is is thousands of years old and encompasses all meditation, mindfulness, and ayurvedic knowledge to date.
• Do you have so much anxiety that you can’t meditate because it makes it worse?
• Do you have a hard time falling asleep or wake up earlier than you want to?
• Are you so overworked, unable to sleep or worn out that you constantly feel fatigued?
• Do you worry, get nervous or fearful more than you want to?
• Do your thoughts race?
• Do you struggle with addiction?
• Do you regularly experience gas, bloating, anxiety related IBS or constipation?
Believe it or not, each of these points either cause or are bundled with anxiety and depression in the science of ayurveda. Cassandra is well trained in the exact yogic and ayurvedic prescriptions for these issues and many, many more. Call or email today for a free consultation!
Beginner’s Yoga Lessons:
Do you feel lost in a 20 person class that is more about a workout than actually learning how to practice poses and breathing mindfully, let alone safely? Do you need special or closer attention due to injuries, disease, or other limitation factors? Perhaps you feel lost in a world where more than half of yoga is about the temperature being super hot in the room, getting the best work out ever, and there is not much attention paid to relaxation, meditation, and breathing. Well, if you are looking for the opposite of that– a healthy and gradual pace for learning yoga (asana) and breathing (pranayama), which creates a natural and effortless state of meditation (dhyana), and an excellent guide for these yoga techniques, I am the teacher for you! If you are looking to practice actual, anciently-given yoga safely and effectively, without all the hoop-la and extra ego, I am that teacher. I have over 850 certification hours of yoga training in both “Hatha” and “Vinyasa,” as well as a certification in Prenatal yoga to offer. I have been practicing yoga for 15 years and teaching for more than 8 years. Please see my full Bio on my About Page! My prices are the same for groups, couples, and families, and please contact me to discuss pricing. If you are a beginner AND interested in either prenatal or transformational yoga for tough emotional times, please continue reading below.

Calling All Seekers
If you are ultimately looking for peace and happiness in your life, I invite you to clear any negativity with my help as your guide. When you begin the life changing and transformational practice known as yoga, it WILL get really challenging, and even ugly. You need someone who has already walked that path. I am confident that I can be that guide. If you need to clear pain from your life and body, pain which perhaps has been passed down to you from generation to generation, I can help. Whether you have anxiety, body shame issues, or if your relationships seem to manifest in the same way over and over again, I can offer real help in the form of authentic yoga. I have cut through these negative patterns in my own life, which are so very common in our modern world, and my highest purpose of life is to serve you in the same way.
The Benefits of Yoga

I lead people through transformation using yoga, awareness skills, and more advanced skills yet. The practice I am most yearning to teach you is off-the-mat yoga, which can be practiced more often than on-the-mat yoga, and is much more powerful. Off the mat-yoga equals Big Life Changes, and it is rare to come across a teacher of this ancient art. This teaching, combined with the more widely taught breathing and postural yoga exercises, will enable you to make significant, permanent life changes. Only combining both on and off-the-mat practice can be called authentic yoga. If you are eager to dive in deep, and want to get serious about yoga without being humorless– If you want to know why things are happening the way they are in your life– If you want the power to change your life– call ME! Then get ready to clear repeating patterns in your life that play like a broken old record. Get ready for a Big Life Cleanse!
How Courageous Can You Be?
You will get the most of out of our time together if you want discover your true self, the deepest layer of your proverbial onion. That deepest place is said to be equivalent to bliss, covered up by a bunch of unnecessary gunk we need to let go of through a process called yoga. In other words, cut through the B.S. and, when the dust clears, enjoy your life more! I am highly qualified to offer modified postures for your injuries and other conditions, but I am not a Physical Therapist (although if you have one I will be happy to call yours and work with him or her for your benefit). Instead, our primary focus will be on the emotional and mental roots of the stagnant prana in your body, or “stuck”energy which is holding you in that uncomfortable physical place. The postural yoga practice has always been meant to clear these kinds of stagnancies away.
My expertise is this “Off the Mat” yoga, an actual yoga therapy as described above, though as you can see from my bio that I also teach what you might already think of as regular, or postural yoga exercises. Chances are though that any physical problems you are dealing with have major emotional and mental components- and only the rare PT or doctor will help you with those things too! I like to think of yoga as much more holistic, with other wonderful practitioners, like psychotherapists, doctors, and the like helping us along the journey with their particular (and oftentimes necessary) expertise.
