Now taking commissions!
Tell me some war stories, babies! I am developing a series of yoga videos and one of them could be for you! I am looking to be commissioned to solve problems for people or groups who feel like they are hitting some sort of wall: what is keeping you from doing the amazing thing you are on the planet to do? If you can explain the wall to me, in writing, I would like to attempt to fix it by designing a yoga set for you. First, email me a 250 word description about the wall you are hitting in your life. If it sounds like something we can fix with a daily yoga practice, we will chat on the phone, and then I will make you a video. We can discuss an exchange rate (money, rocks, love, trades) after we get started.
Weekly class in Thunder Bay, Ontario (Canada) is now finished.
This past Fall, Cassie led a series of 11 free yoga classes on Tuesdays at noon at RiVAL in Thunder Bay.
Fall 2017 Special Workshops
In October 2017, Cassie led an abolitionist yoga workshop in Minneapolis, MN as a part of Abolish Border Imperialism! – A Convergence for Abolition and Decolonization. Here’s the description:
The goal of this yoga workshop is to develop a network of individuals who are stable and healthy enough to be a part of the cross border feminist militia that destroys the wall that imperialism wants to construct around and between us. We will not align our chakras for individual gain, nor for self help, and we won’t promote self care. This yoga class works through the body to develop a sense of furious interconnectedness and militant mutual responsibility. The Feminist Economics Yoga workshop, which has occurred in yoga studios, for community groups, and in art galleries, leads angry and impatient participants to feel and practice mutual aid and abolitionism as a healing practice. It seeks to smuggle radical abolitionist activism into the bourgeois miasma of corporate yoga bullshit. We will use yoga to train ourselves to become the living infrastructure of post-work care and to develop the social justice skills we need to construct a future feminist economy that honors people over capital. Developed by Cassie Thornton, an artist, feminist economist and certified Kundalini yoga teacher, this practice is something you can take home to help you calm and/or inflame your nervous system so you can hear your own voice over the screaming orange circus peanut and his minions. You can share what you learn with your communities who need legitimate ways of healing from the systemic realities that impact every single social and individual body. It’s hard.
