Cassi loves to encourage students to exceed the limits they place on themselves. “I love the idea of exploring more space in your body through using the silks and the mental hurdles you can overcome while hanging upside down. Aerial Yoga encourages you to truly be present in your movements because you’re not only focusing on using your body, but also on utilizing the fabric to get the most out of your time in the room.”
