Yoga for Weightlifters, Powerlifters & Crossfit

About This Class

Here's a 30 minute yoga class ideal for weightlifters with tight hips & shoulders

Try my new 30 minute class for weight lifters and body builders! This is a Vinyasa Flow style class where we will focus mainly on opening up the chest, shoulders and hips. It is a fast paced class to give you a good workout but also includes a few long held hip opener poses to create lasting mobility.

To target the hips, we will be doing some low lunges, warrior 2's, lizard and pigeon pose. To get into the upper body we will playing around with eagle arms, laying chest openers, planks and dolphin pose.

I'm not using any props during this class but if your shoulders and chest are very tight, using a strap can be a good idea. If you don't own a strap a belt or theraband also does the trick! Another prop you may want to have a handy is a block.

Yoga With Kassandra

Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga.


I’m an Ottawa-based Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga. I started practicing yoga in 2008 as a way to become more flexible and learn to manage stress and anxiety. Little did I know in a few short years I would have the privilege of becoming a teacher, passionately committed to sharing yoga with others who, like me, were sick of feeling less than vibrant.

Before I started practicing, I barely had any energy, I couldn’t quiet my mind for a single minute and always seemed to have aches and pains in my legs and lower back. Once I started practicing regularly, bit by bit I became stronger, calmer and braver. Yoga is now ingrained in my daily life in a fundamental way. It helps me meet any challenges I may face by teaching me to be present, focused and receptive


Through my Yoga with Kassandra YouTube channel, I’ve been able to introduce Yin Yoga to hundreds of thousands of people from across the globe. What started as my own personal sadhana to ease stress and anxiety quickly unraveled into my greatest passion, an exciting career and a whole new way of life!

My aim is to create accessible, easy to follow yoga classes that you can do in the comfort of your own home.

I hope you find value in my offerings and thank you so much for stopping by.
