Cassie is a yoga teacher who creates an environment in which students can grow from the inside out. She encourages students to explore their potential on the mat so that they will increase their awareness of their capabilities off the mat. Cassie believes that yoga is a place for students to find a place to listen to the inner voice which speaks from within—a voice which is often ignored. Making incredible changes and life choices can be difficult, but if one is able to connect with and honor his or her true self, all things become possible and real.
Cassie teaches a strong vinyasa flow with alignment and breath at the core. Movement and strength are always incorporated into her classes, along with a little playful inspiration. Be ready to sweat, laugh, and love every bit of yourself!
Cassie received her 200RYT at a beautiful studio in Aspen, Colorado. What started out as a small adventure to the mountains turned into a 3-year journey to self discovery. Cassie moved back to Chicago and returned to the corporate world, only to find that teaching yoga was her true calling. After spending a year working with Viacom, Cassie returned to her mat! She now teaches in the Chicagoland area.
You can also catch her traveling the world, teaching retreats with Compass Spirit Yoga. Cassie was recently accepted to join Yoga Medicine for their 500RYT certification.
