Certified Yoga Instructor
Cassie grew up in NE Minneapolis and studied Spanish Communications and Latin American Relations at MN State University, Mankato. She has lived, studied, and volunteered in Mexico, Central America, Ecuador, and Spain.
As a 10-year practitioner of yoga, Cassie completed her first 200-hour teacher training in alignment-based vinyasa in 2017. She had anticipated using this training in serving our growing older population - which she has - but this training was above and beyond her expectations and encouraged her to complete 100-hour yoga therapeutics though the Spirit of Yoga in Iznate, Spain, expand on her personal meditation practice, and work towards additional trainings in Yin Yoga and Mind-Body Fitness though the Academy of Holistic Fitness. Yoga is her passion but she has expanded her knowledge to receive additional certifications in group exercise, personal training and senior fitness.
Cassie has taught a variety of formats across the metro teaching to kids to older adults. If she isn't teaching, she's participating in classes or workshops as a forever learner, or cooking in her kitchen. She is currently working towards her Master's degree in Health and Wellness Management through the University of Wisconsin, River Falls with an anticipated graduation date of December 2021.
