CASSANDRA YASKO

Dance was my first real passion with Yoga following shortly behind; both guided me into the person I am today. I love helping people find joy through movement, particularly working with children to enrich their sense of balance (both physically & mentally) at a young age. I’ve written articles about the important subject matter of how Dance & Yoga can positively influence our lives. I think it’s amazing how many healing opportunities they both have to offer; whether the healing is related to mental health recovery or physical therapy to an injury.

 

I found my love for dance at a young age in rural Maine, advancing my studies into the cities of Boston & New York. My passion for dance expanded while spending summers at Boston Conservatory, Alvin Ailey, ABT, & attending the Joffrey Ballet School Trainee Program. After receiving an AA in Dance Performance from Dean College, I went on to complete my BA through UMass Amherst with a dual degree in Dance & Health. While completing my BA I also became a Certified Yoga Instructor, continuing my educational studies years hence in Yoga Specialization.
