"Joining a yoga class wasn't something that I would have considered doing several months ago. Why? First, I'm a 60+, heavy set woman. Second, getting down to or up from floor level would be too difficult and painful given my size and knee/hip issues. And third, I couldn't see myself fitting in with young, trim, physically fit younger folks. What changed? I was introduced to the concept of 'chair' yoga and a wonderful instructor whose style I like. Kassandra is a very knowledgeable instructor. Her voice is soothing. She explains moves and poses in easy terms and supplements with physical demonstrations. She recognizes the diversity of the group and respects each individual's level of capability and progression timeline. I feel so good after 1-hour of deep breathing, stretching and muscle toning. Flexibility in my lower body as well as range of motion in my hips has improved. I'm also concentrating on my breathing outside of class to help get through stress or simply to relax to get a good night's sleep. I highly recommend 'chair' yoga à la Kassandra to anyone who is looking for a gentle start to a more active lifestyle."
"I have been practicing chair yoga with Kassandra for 4 weeks now. I feel stronger in my injured hip, my posture and wellbeing are much improved, and I have more energy. Kassandra is an excellent teacher"
"Although I'm a very active person, I never spent time looking after myself physically. I really demonstrated to myself my years of self neglect after committing to and beginning chair yoga. Kassandra has slowly but steadily helped me gain better balance, become a bit more flexible, and stronger. It will take time to come back to the level I aspire to but little by little I am improving."
