“I am a 48 year old man and after 3 back surgeries and years of therapy and cortisone shots, my back was still getting worse. As a last resort, I decided to try yoga therapy. After 3 months of 3 yoga sessions per week with Cassandra, my leg and back pain are gone and my core is greatly strengthened. I have flexibility not seen since I was 20. Cassandra is a patient, encouraging yet persistent instructor with a great deal of compassion. I highly recommend her as a yoga therapist, and especially encourage those with back pain to give her a try.” - A.S.
