About The Teacher
Since 2006 Cassie has been dedicated to a daily practice of yoga, thriving on the physicality of Asana, the wonder of Pranayama, the basic goodness of Yamas and Niyamas and growth that can occur through meditation. She is the owner of Paraka Yoga studio.
It is her belief that yoga has the potential to bring into the lives of those who practice it a greater balance, and greater awareness oof the world at large. Cassie believes that the practice of yoga has the ability to bring increased clarity into daily life resulting in one simply being the best that they can be.
Paraka yoga is based around the teachings of Tirumalai Krishnamacharya.
The word Paraka is derived from the Tasmania Aboriginal word meaning to Blossom. It has meaning in Sanskrit, inhalation, inspiration.
Throughout the retreat weekend Cassie will be using Vinyasa Flow with emphasis on dynamic movement and flow of breath, meditation and practices of eastern philosophy.Source: oceansretreat.secure.retreat.guru
