Yoga Nidra Workshop

Friday, 21 February 2020


6.30pm – 8pm

with Kiera Treloar

In our modern lives, when time is precious and pressure is high, Yoga Nidra allows us to cultivate  space to help alleviate the tensions arising from a racing mind, reach a deep state of rest and bring the body and mind back into a balanced state.

This ancient yogic meditation practice has been developed over thousands of years, and is now recognised by western medicine as an evidence based therapy shown to help with symptoms of stress, anxiety and insomnia.

At this upcoming Workshop, you’ll learn more about the history and modern research into this practice and experience a blissful 60 minute practice.

Tickets: $45

Members: FREE

Kids Yoga Classes

Starting February 4, 2020
Running for a 10 week term

Tuesdays 4-5pm - Kids aged 4-7 years

Yoga from a young age is a fun way for children to develop physical health and well-being by building self-awareness, strength and flexibility for the mind and body. Each week we will focus on a different theme. Classes are structured around different themes such as: friendship, empathy and confidence. Unlike other sports, yoga is practised in a nurturing, non-competitive environment which allows children to relax, have fun whilst developing coordination, communication skills, balance, as well as increasing body awareness.

Tuesdays 5-6pm - Kids aged 7-12 years

A regular yoga practice for older children is so beneficial at this busy time in their lives. From a young age children begin to experience pressure to perform academically and socially. Add to this the pressure of competitive organized sports and it’s is easy for children to become overly self-critical, and lose confidence in themselves. During this time, yoga can be a great remedy for the tension associated with daily stressors as well as an important facilitator of healthy physical, emotional and cognitive development.


During a children’s yoga class there is a complete absence of judgment and competition; doing a pose ‘perfectly’ or better than another is not the aim of yoga. This unconditional positive regard and encouragement creates a nourishing environment, allowing children to relax and have fun whilst developing strength, coordination, flexibility and balance, as well as increasing body awareness. These classes will assist your child with developing tools to combat anxietities, everyday stresses and remaining in the present moment, helping to improve concentration. These are valuable strategies which will assist them now and later in life!

Anusara® Yoga Immersion Workshops

100 Hours of Transformative Yoga Practice

At the heart of Earth & Sky is Anusara® (www.anusara.com) - a simple, elegant yogic philosophy and methodology in which body, heart and mind are brought into alignment through practice. 

Anusara yoga Immersion Workshops, allow you to deepen and evolve your practice on every level and are led by Earth & Sky’s director and senior Anusara yoga teacher, Cassandra Missio. You will be immersed in 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. 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.

Importantly, the Immersion Workshops stimulate the development of a kula (community of the heart), among whom students delve deeply into key Anusara yoga teachings. Working together, focussed on heart expansion and inspired biomechanics, students grow towards the realisation of the potential inherent in their individual lives and practice.
This series of eight Immersion Workshops is open to all Earth & Sky yoga students wishing to enrich their own practice and understanding of yoga. The Immersion worksops are also perfect for aspiring and existing teachers as they are the prerequisite first step towards Anusara teacher certification.

Topics Covered:

  • Anusara asana practice and discussion of methodology
  • Philosophy
  • Pranayama and meditation
  • Yoga anatomy
  • Group discussion & personal contemplation

These eight Immersion Workshop weekends are held across: Friday evening 6–9pm; Saturday afternoon 1.30–5pm; and Sunday 8.30am–3.30pm.
Earth & Sky members and qualified yoga teachers receive a 10% discount on the Immersion Workshops.

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!

Please call Cassandra on 0413 303 484 or email her cassandra@earthandskyyoga.com.au to discuss your interest and for a prospectus and application form.
