Yoga for transformation. Yoga for its original intention - for those seeking Self-realisation and a more joyful, fulfilling existence.

At Inner Power Yoga you will receive the  teachings of  traditional yoga. Yoga is not exercise - it is the science of energy management and art of Self-inquiry. It is a spiritual practice passed down from teacher to student for thousands of years. A practice that encompasses not just the postures or asana, but also pranayama (breath work), meditation, philosophy and subtle energy management tools. In essence, a complete practice to harness your energy, and help you actualise the greatest version of yourself. A practice designed to create a fulfilling life, not just a flexible body.

Cassandra Pickel is Inner Power Yoga's principal teacher. Cassandra knows only to well the transformative power of yoga. "I was such an angry, discontent and generally messed up wild child before I discovered yoga. I hate to think where I would be if I had never started practicing. The mindfulness that yoga brings has such power to change our perception of our lives, ourselves and the world around us. Not only do we learn how to harness our energy so we can thrive, but we also undergo a personal transformation learning more about ourselves and our beliefs. Together they help us to shape our lives in a way that truly serves ourselves as well as others. We stop being so emotionally reactive, and begin to see that happiness, joy and love is an inside job and our birthright. We begin to see there is no separateness".


Cassandra started her yoga journey  studying Mysore Ashtanga Yoga under the guidance of Graham Northfield and Iain Clarke both direct students and Certified Teachers of Sri K Pattabhi Jois.

Always the student, she continues to study each year and has completed , four ParaYoga Master Trainings (Sri Vidya lineage) with  Yogarupa Rod Stryker, plus two other recognised trainings with him. She has also completed a 50hr Teacher Training in Tantric Hatha with The Practice Bali and a 500hr YTT with VIYETT (Melbourne), as well as a 50hr Level 1 & 2 Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist Training and a 50hr Psychology of Yoga (The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali) training with Inner Revolution (Brad Hay), 50hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Bernie Clarke and further Ayurvedic training with Lydia Rega. She has also studied with Kavitha Chinnaiyan focusing on the Lalita Sahasranama, a Tantric mantra in the Sri Vidya tradition, which has become the focus of her practice and study. By continuing her studies, she has found that not only does her personal practice achieve greater depth, but also her teaching and what she can impart to her students.

She has been practicing yoga for 27 years and teaching for 8 years, and specialises in empowering others to live authentic, purposeful lives through retreats, workshops and classes. She currently lives in the remote tourist town of Exmouth in Western Australia's North West, as well as teaching each summer on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia.
