I have been studying Yoga for 15 years, with amazing teachers in Brazil, India and Thailand, always in search of knowledge about how to progress in my own practice and how to bring safety and flow to my classes. My focus is to help students develop awareness of the body and breathing, building deep relaxation and a strong concentration abilities, in order to expand these feelings off the yoga mat. As a certified massage therapist my goal is to increase my knowledge and experience to offer holistic treatments that involves yoga and massage to achieve balance in body, mind and soul.

"Yoga with Cassandra "
The yoga retreat was exactly what I was looking for. Yoga is offered twice daily at el Zopilote and the private lesson was once a day Cassandra was a great instructor and set me up with a daily routine specific for my body needs. I really enjoyed working with her. She was very patient with me and helped me with proper body alignment. The setting is beautiful on the island of ometepe. A nice breeze everyday
Food was great. Entire staff was helpful. Highly recommend the yoga with Cassandra!! She’s awesome to work with

"Great way to start Hatha yoga for beginners"
I really enjoyed my 4 yoga sessions with Cassandra. We met the first day to discuss the plan for the week. I could choose when I wanted to do the sessions. It was 1 on 1 so therefore you get a lot of attention and feedback from the teacher. Cassandra is very calm and pleasant to be with. She helped me correct my posture during the poses which will help me to do it myself. The massage on the 2nd day was amazing! We ended with practicing my own routine that she customized for me to do at home.
The permaculture farm at Zopilote was nicely located, it's all in the nature and the platform was pleasant between the trees. Definitely recommend this retreat!
