I am a Registered 500 Level Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance International Africa, based in the beautiful town of Langebaan in the Western Cape, South Africa. I have been fortunate enough to live and work in 5 countries, spending most of the last 20 years in Hong Kong.
I am a mom to two incredible young adults and the wife of one awesome, adventurous husband! Apart from teaching yoga, my hobbies include off-road motorbiking, stand-up paddleboarding, running, and longboarding. If I'm not doing any of these things, you'll find me studying something!
I love learning and sharing my knowledge with my students.
I've been lucky to learn from wise and inspiring individuals in both Hong Kong and Thailand. Having the chance to share those lessons and experiences with my students fills me with joy. As a professional Yoga Teacher, my intention is to help students connect with their inner selves and find the courage to be their authentic selves. I hope that my students experience the joy that this practice gives to me.
Get in touch with me if you're new to yoga or want to find out more.
Everyone could use more yoga in their lives, so I hope to see you on the mat soon.

Alyssa is a licensed therapist in private practice, with a personal interest in mindfulness.
Alyssa has been integrating mindfulness into her work with children, adolescents and adults for many years. She has seen firsthand the way mindfulness helps her clients to decrease anxiety levels, improve their emotional regulation skills, and helps them focus their attention and cultivate kindness, both inward and outward.
Alyssa plans on using what she has learned in the Mindful Minis Advanced Training to begin forming mindfulness groups for children ages 5 and up.
My journey in teaching teachers in yoga teacher trainings over the last 7 years, with over 700 hours of trainings, has taught me so much more about myself, the human condition and the path and practice of growth both on and off the mat.
I have other gifts to share with you- through my own experience and practice of Yoga, Meditation, Breathwork, Massage and Energy Healing, all beautiful opportunities to connect with you, inspiring you and reminding you of your true connection to yourself and love. I believe we are all the powerful CREATORS of our own life experience. I seek to remind you of your innate true essence and exquisite potential within you to create a life of harmony, balance, and beauty. I am in service of this remembering and love.
Nature inspires me, fills me up with healing energy and restores balance and harmony within in me from beautiful sunsets, beach walks, forest meanders to being amongst precious animals! I love to connect one on one or in groups, with heart people and enjoy deep and meaningful dialogue and conversations, where we can also laugh at ourselves and life! Travelling to new places be it local or abroad, always excites me. And when I am home, my home is my sanctuary, I love just
BEING at home, taking in the pause, cooking a beautiful meal, basking in sacred space or a good kitchen dance thrown in for good measure!
I look forward to our heart connection together soon, through the joy of Yoga, the soul touch of massage, the light of Energy Healing or just an inspiring conversation over Tarot, Essential Oils or the beauty of living this interesting, beautiful life Earth side.

I am a Dylan Werner 300hrs and Ana Forrest Advanced Teacher, Jim Harrington 5 Star Yoga Teacher, ISHTA 500hrs and Pregnancy Yoga Teacher.
I have tried a few different styles of yoga and have been fortunate enough to have trained with both international and local teachers. Each and every single one of them have influenced my life and my yoga. I am very blessed and honoured to have had all the incredible experiences on this path and I have learned so much on this Journey called Yoga.
I run yoga teacher training courses, I teach private, corporate, workshops, festivals, retreats and group classes. I teach all levels of yoga from beginners to advanced and my teaching styles are: Myofascia Sequenced Vinyasa, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Hatha, Ashtanga and Heated Vinyasa.
My mission for teaching is to facilitate and create an environment where students can enter at any level and progress on their own personal journey of growth and improvement. One of my primary techniques is to simplify complex poses in a safe and fun environment with the culture where everyone moves and progresses at their own pace yet constantly finding creative ways to keep the students inspired. With that said, my style of teaching is often considered strong, to encourage and challenge students to overcome their own fears to be the best they can be.
Look forward to seeing you on the mat! NAMASTE!
For Cassandra, yoga is both an art and a science that involves the movement of the body, the stilling of the mind and the calming of emotions. Our entire experience in this world is governed by our bodies and she feels that there is so much to learn with regards to them. Yoga gives one the space to practically explore the body while science gives us the place to document our experiences. Yoga has been a way for Cassandra to maintain balance within an ever-changing world. She hopes that her classes will bring about a sense of calmness and stability in body, mind and emotions to all those she teaches.
