Cassidy Barbeau is a mother to three magical light-bringers and devoted to her one-of-a-kind husband, Paul.

The Barbeau family recently returned to California by way of an 11 year journey in Costa Rica. After deepening her knowledge of yoga and self-awareness in the rainforest, Cassidy has planted roots full time in La Quinta.

In addition to teaching children’s yoga workshops and co-leading inspiring kundalini full moon circles, she teaches a weekly Kriya Flow class, which fuses her love of powerful kundalini yoga with engaging vinyasa flows. Although awakening the body matters to Cassidy, she is far more concerned with awakening and healing the spirit, creating awareness of Self, and removing blockages in the psyche. Her unique classes leave you feeling energized, peaceful, and interested in continuing on a yogic path.
