There is huge variability between human bodies and experiences. You wouldn’t expect everyone to fit into a pair of size 6 jeans, so why would you expect them to fit into the same alignment of a yoga posture?
I'm Cassandra (Cassie for short). I'm an experienced and socially conscious yoga teacher with a passion for making dynamic yoga accessible. My focus is on adjusting postures and flows to meet the needs and body of the yoga practitioner - not the other way around.
Actively teaching Core Strength Vinyasa, Yoga Shred® and Yoga For All, my classes are playful, powerful and compassionate. I integrate contemporary knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics into my teaching and use non-linear instruction to help students move safely and strongly into their most functional individual alignments.
In a deviation from traditional yoga styles, I teach postures from the ground up and inside out to promote safe, efficient and powerful movement led by the inner core. This core-led practice helps individuals to build inner strength and resilience not only physically, but mentally and emotionally as well.

Private classes are a wonderful way to fast-track your progress and make great low-carbon gifts for family and friends. I offer one-to-one workshops, corporate classes, college classes and private group bookings at the following rates:
“Cassie taught me yoga several times a week for over two years and I enjoyed every single class. She was passionate about making yoga accessible, and would adjust her classes to fit moods, energy levels, abilities and body shapes perfectly. Her classes were totally unintimidating and perfect for beginners - over the years it was lovely seeing how many people who had never done yoga before (like me!) quickly became her regulars. She was also just unfailingly kind, knowledgeable about yoga (but at the same time highly aware of the yoga world's limitations, and of political debates surrounding it) and encouraging - all the things you want in a yoga teacher!”Lucy McDonald
“Cassie's contagious energy safely and effectively guides you into getting your asana kicked. She is also skilled at feeding your mind and body with perspectives that profoundly shift your awareness on so many levels.”Alyson Wish, Core Strength Vinyasa Master Trainer
“I love how accessible Cassandra's yoga sessions are, she's always happy to take the time to be aware of injuries and mobility needs and tailor the classes to everyone's ability. I always come away feeling calm and energized!”Naomi Lester
“Cassie continues to provide the classes for St. Anne’s College, Oxford, combining an amazing blend of both progression and future foundations for all of our of members. The classes are the perfect balance for achieving personal physical ambitions, midterm-destressing and motivation, and meeting like-minded people - all set to the soulful tune of Cassie’s compelling enthusiasm, yoga-knowledge, inclusivity, spirituality and encouragement (not to mention the eclectic playlists that some of the students have been asking me to ask you for as your backing track!).”Nick Dodds, St Anne's College MCR Sports Rep 2017
