Yin Yoga is the perfect antidote to the yang energy that fuels our busy Sydney lifestyles. According to tradition, there is Yin and Yang in everything. Yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspects of an object. While Yang is the changing, moving revealing aspects of an object. However, Yin and Yang always co-exist: there is never one without the other. The same is true of yoga, a balanced yoga practice features both yin and yang styles. At Earth & Sky Yoga our Yin Yoga classes are the perfect complement to our Hatha and Pilates classes.

Yin Yoga is a grounded, mat-based practice that targets specific areas of the body with poses that are designed to be held in stillness, for several minutes. There is minimal effort involved, no trying, just allowing the muscles to relax, and mindfully connecting with your body. In Yin Yoga our breath guides us inwards and helps us to soften and open as we lengthen and create space in the body’s connective tissue (fascia). This improves joint mobility, range of motion and flexibility, and reduces stiffness and soreness. It is also deeply calming to the nervous system.

You don’t need to be flexible to join a Yin Yoga class. Far from it, Yin Yoga is suitable for all ages, fitness levels, shapes and sizes. Yin Yoga is a very contemplative practice and movements are slow and mindful. We seek to restore health and vitality, rebalance energy in the body, mind and emotions and connect with ourselves on a whole new level.

"Kimberley’s Yin yoga class was pure bliss!  Her instructions were clear and easy to follow and at the time it didn’t feel like anything was ‘happening’ but when it was time to pack up and go..... wow there was a major shift in energy.  I slept so deeply and sweetly and felt so energised the next day, I could hardly wait to book in for her next class!" - Ronda.

Anusara® Yoga Immersions coming in 2020

100 Hours of Transformative Yoga Practice

Earth and Sky Yoga Studio is offering a series of eight (8) Anusara yoga immersion weekend workshops.

Anusara yoga immersions invite you to deepen your yoga practice on every level: develop and evolve your practice, dive into yoga philosophy, yogic physiology, pranayama and meditation. This rich and inspiring environment offers you a unique opportunity to experience the expansive qualities inherent in yoga. In this program we have the opportunity to form a kula (community of the heart) to delve deeply into the key elements of the Anusara yoga teachings. Working together you will feel how an open heart and inspired biomechanics can open possibilities in your practice and in your life.

These immersions will give you a solid working knowledge of the basic philosophy, principles and practice of Anusara yoga. Anusara is an elegant yet simple approach to hatha yoga with a strong focus on alignment and a highly sophisticated philosophy and practice. Through Anusara yoga you will learn clear, safe and applicable principles of alignment.

Over eight weekends we will teach you to integrate the key elements of the Anusara teachings into your practice, and how to integrate yoga into your own life more fully. The immersions are also the prerequisite first step towards Anusara certification and establishes a solid foundation from which to skilfully share Anusara yoga.

The perfect opportunity to experience a more advanced practice – open to anyone who wishes to enrich their own practice and understanding of yoga and perfect for current teachers interested in refreshing their teaching skills and looking for new inspiration.

Topics Covered:

54 hours of Anusara asana practice and discussion of methodology

Your Teacher

Cassandra first came to yoga in her early twenties whilst travelling. She knew after her first class that she had stumbled upon a very powerful and potent discipline that left her feeling grounded and clear. She has been teaching yoga for 15 years and began her training in 2002 by undertaking a traditional teacher mentoring apprenticeship at The Art of Yoga in Summer Hill.

She has continued to develop her practice and teaching skills studying on numerous occasions with the founder of Anusara yoga, John Friend and many of his senior teachers. She has studied regularly with meditation and philosophy teacher Carlos Pomeda and Yoga Therapist Doug Kellar. After many years of refining her teaching, Cassandra became a certified Anusara yoga teacher in 2009. She teaches a wide range of classes from beginners to advanced as well as more specialised restorative and prenatal classes. She has many dedicated students who have been attending her classes for over 10 years. She has also established a busy private practice and teaches many one-on-one yoga therapy sessions per week.

She is inspired to offer teacher training at Earth and Sky Yoga Studio as her part in helping maintain high standards and integrity in the teaching of yoga.

In the Anusara tradition, Cassandra’s teaching style weaves precise bio-mechanical alignment and heart centred philosophy with the intent to offer an experience of freedom and lightness to the body and the heart!
