Cassie completed her Unifed Yoga 200-Hour Teacher Training Immersion with Jagadisha Peter Petrovic and her Yin Yoga Training Immersion with Jacquie Ruderman. A trained ballet dancer, Cassie has practiced many types of yoga for the past 20 years, “Hot” 26X2 and Yin for the last 5 years. She finds the moving meditation of a Hot 26X2 practice powerful and invigorating. When so much in life is changing, Cassie believes coming to the mat each day to practice the same sequence of 26 postures -- and even more importantly, the moments of stillness between each posture – keeps her grounded, focused and healthy.
She is a freelance writer and copy editor, who has lived with her husband and four kids in Montclair since 1996, with a brief 2-year relocation to the South Bay area in CA (where she continued to practice yoga and meditation in Los Gatos and San Jose), from 2011 to 2013. When not yoga-ing, Cassie can be seen walking her three dogs (Simone, Daffodil, and Bo) around town.
