Cass, owner & founder of River & Ridge Yoga, Canberra, teaches yoga because she loves what it has brought to her life and felt compelled to pass on the benefits in a sustainable and uplifting way, whatever your motivation for arriving on the mat may be.Strength, resilience and persistence, flexibility, adaptability and calm. Physically and emotionally, these are the reasons she loves and shares her practice. And it is practice - for life. We can grow and find something new every time. HOW Cass creates sequences inspired by the power and fluidity of nature. The bold stability of mountains, the flowing calm of streams. I am also inspired by my students. I design classes for feelings, situations, for life. Your life. Truly. Balancing strength & flexibility in mind and body, classes are tailored to your interests and lifestyle so that you can carry the benefits through your day-to-day, and look forward to the next meeting .
You are strong. Cass' aim is to gift you with this strength, and allow you to return to it. To provide you with tools to connect with yourself and the world. And to encourage a return to the true meaning of yoga; Union. Not a narrowed focus on physicality or poses, nor on the innumerable benefits for mind and emotional health, but the marriage of the two.
REMEMBER TO BREATH Inspired by the steady strength of mountains and the flowing freedom of water, this class incorporates low and slow postures (yin) with uplifting movement (yang), mindful meditation, and breath. A 75 minute class designed to ground and calm as well as lift and rejuvenate.
