She encourages students to step into their personal power and surrender to self-love. “My intention is for students to grow, to let go, and to choose joy. ” -Cass

Cass teaches VIBE, a yoga style she created in 2015 after 7 years of teaching yoga, 8 years of coaching gymnastics, countless years of studying and creating movement as a yogi, dancer and gymnast, and soon after becoming a Reiki Practitioner. VIBE stands for vinyasa, invert, breathe, explore. Experience a creative collaboration of movement, breath, and music. Cass encourages students to tailor the practice to meet their needs by providing an array of variations, both modifications and advancements, making her classes accessible to a vast audience.

To keep the practice alive and inspired, she offers something new and different in her weekly classes with sequences that emphasize safe alignment, breath awareness, and self-exploration. She puts a lot of love and energy into her workshops, retreats, special events and private lessons to ensure progress; body, mind, and spirit.

After devotedly logging nearly 1000 hours of study, she was certified in 2010. Cassandra’s love for yoga keeps her connected to the global yoga community as both a student and a teacher.

The location was spectacular! The staff at Costa Dulce were wonderful often going above and beyond. I enjoyed the Nicaraguan foods we were treated to for many of our meals. The activities offered were unique and so much fun! My only concern would be about organization/ communication of activity arrangements, whether regarding times, additional costs... Etc. Loved this trip, would do it again I. A heartbeat!!!

The transportation to the hotel was easy to find and conveniently set up for us. Costa Dulce was not what I was expecting. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had known what I was getting into, and would have packed very differently. It was more of a hostel on the ocean than a hotel. Small rooms with no locks, screen walls, and bugs everywhere. Some rooms had bathrooms, others you'd have to walk outside to get to the bathroom, and showers were shared by several rooms. No A/C and limited airflow in the rooms lead to hot and buggy nights. The meals were good, and what seemed to be authentic Nicaraguan food-very carb heavy and little protein. There was a super convenient 'honor bar' where you could get beer, wine, rum, or soda and charge it to your room. Massages were great, on site, and super cheap. Most of the activities were done by local contractors and very well done. Horseback riding was awesome. My group and ambassador was great, but have a few more creature comforts would have been appreciated.

My trip to Costa Dulce was incredible beyond words. From the location to the food, from the yoga classes to the energy of the city, everything was perfect. The location is beautiful and very rustic, the food was some of the best I've ever had--each meal was more delicious than the one before, and the yoga itself was absolutely amazing. Massages, surfing, and nature walks were wonderful too. Would recommend and definitely travel there again.

We had an amazing time at Costa Dulce. The food and accommodations were excellent, and the staff were great. We so enjoyed the fact that it was an eco-resort and blended into the jungle and ocean surroundings. It was the perfect place to unplug, recharge, practice yoga, meditate and just relax. Definitely a special place!

Absolutely incredible trip. Costa Dulce is even more stunning than the photos and a perfect location for a retreat. All of the staff and owners are super helpful, approachable, and a pleasure to interact with. The proximity to the beach, views from the rooms and the yoga shala are second to none. Costa Dulce sits on its own private beach (which is massive) and offers plenty to do - from swimming, surfing, paddleboarding in the lagoon, reading in a shady hammock, horseback riding, etc. The food was amazing and they managed to accomodate an extensive range of food allergies/preferences and offered healthy, fresh meals. I would give the trip 6 stars if I could.

Very nice location, closest thing to paradise. Staff, food and managers were great. Yoga classes with the very dedicated Asami were soooo cool and demanding at the same time. I can't see how a retreat could be better executed.

The trip was amazing. I signed up because Asami is a wonderful teacher, and the entire trip exceeded my expectations. The yoga was a great combination of meditation, flow and yin, learning new postures and doing affirmations with partners. Costa Dulce was very accommodating for the airport shuttle, dietary restrictions (the food was incredible!), and many different activities. It was just the right combination of high quality but laid back, activities to choose from but time to relax, nice rooms and bar/lounge, the waves and sunsets were beautiful. A couple we met there said they had stayed at other places in Nicaragua before Costa Dulce and there was simply no comparison. Thank you Asami, Kit and Tyson!

Costa dulce is off the beaten path and well worth the trek. Gorgeous beaches, quaint bungalows with amazing views, the food was fresh and healthy. Yoga with Cass and Caitlin was fun, relaxing and the views in the studio overlooking the ocean were like no other! Overall I had an amazing experience.
