Casey’s focus on the spiritual and physical aspects of yoga, with an emphasis on mindful and intelligent vinyasa sequencing, make her classes creative, challenging, and genuinely fun. Her down-to-earth demeanor and sense of humor enable her students to invigorate both the physical and subtle bodies, and ignite a true passion from within. Casey’s favorite part about her teaching, aside from seeing bodies transforming with the breath, is witnessing her students develop confidence and pride for their practice.
