Vinyasa yoga teacher Cassia Matteo

My very first yoga experience was attending pre-natal yoga classes at Tree of Life in Malahide during the year of 2009.

I used to be an avid gym-goer participating in many activities specially the ones challenging to me such as spinning, TRX, etc. But it all changed after being introduced to Yoga.

I have practiced Hatha yoga since 2010, all my practice to date come from all these years gaining knowledge and being encouraged by my teachers (friends!) from my main place of practice in the hot yoga studio at Balbriggan. All this work gave me confidence to start my journey towards my Yoga teacher certificate.

In 2016 I was awarded my 250 Hour Introductory Samadhi Yoga Teacher Training at Samadhi Dublin under the supervision of lovely teachers, among them, Greg Walsh.

I am proud of what I have achieved so far and very happy to have opened so many other doors in this never ending Yoga journey, soon to start yet another chapter, as I will be training towards certifying to teach Yoga for kids.

I continue adding up to my own practice by engaging in other schools of Yoga such as Ashtanga and Iyengar, time is short and many times I wish I could dedicate everyday to going to classes but I believe it is better to do whatever is possible instead of nothing.

My classes have been described to me by the students as being strong, but in a good way :) I like adding to my class plans bits and pieces of what I am currently learning, practicing and struggling with on my own practice! I love playing with Vinyasa transitions and getting some lovely inversions here and there ;)

Looking forward to sharing my Yoga experience with you!
