Cassandra McDonough teaches meditative, rhythmic, and bhakti-powered Vinyasa yoga in the Prana Flow style as well as a more gentle Kripalu “Hatha” yoga. She is a Kripalu 500-hr certified yoga instructor, as well as a 300 – hr graduate of the Prana Flow Vinyasa training with world-renowned Shiva Rea. She has also completed Prenatal training with Jane Austin at Yoga Tree in San Francisco, for a total of over 850 certification hours. She has been a student of yoga since age 14, practicing for more than 15 years, and teaching for more than 8 years to date. Yoga has helped Cassandra completely heal moderate scoliosis, sciatica and lower back pain, anxiety, and much, much more.

In 2009, she spent a full year immersed in an intensive program at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, MA where she had the opportunity to study with many world-renowned teachers from many healing traditions. During this time Cassandra also developed a deep off-the-mat yoga practice, learning how to use yoga to actually heal her whole life. Her most influential teachers are Mark Whitwell and Shiva Rea, who both espouse a breath-centered and life-affirming practice. Yoga allows you to “have your life!” in the words of Mark Whitwell. She invites student-friends to embrace the healing practice of yoga as she continues on her own path.
