About the Teacher
Casey is an athlete, i.e, youngest child in a competitive and loving family. Brought up on the kind streets of Costa Mesa, CA where she could roam the neighborhood from park to park without fear and just had to be home by dark. Soccer was her sport until a six inch growth spurt hit my whole body except my feet and then it was volleyball. In junior college off-season it was requested of Casey to take yoga, in hopes it would make me jump higher…fast-forward to current day and she is a 200-hour certified vinyasa yoga teacher. There were many adventures in athletics and yoga in-between, of course, and there still are today. Moving her body feels like home no matter where Casey goes with volleyball taking her to Holland and Huntington Beach, CA and yoga moving her to Seattle, WA. The stillness is the struggle and in that struggle…all my peace.
