Cassandra Fauss is an unconventional yogi, dog lover, adventure seeker and self-proclaimed beer aficionado. A wanderer and dreamer since youth, she followed many paths after college from film production to line cook, retail to real estate. Cassandra credits her unconventional journey for setting the stage for her favorite job of all, nomadic yogi entrepreneur.
Cassandra attended her first yoga class in 2005 in Dallas, Texas, shortly after graduating college and launching her career in film production. Initially drawn to yoga for the physical benefits, she soon experienced a profound shift that changed the way she perceived and navigated the world around her. Cassandra’s yoga practice led her out of her comfort zone and taught her to listen to her own intuition as a guide, both on and off the yoga mat.
In 2009, after being laid off from her “dream job,” Cassandra used her severance package to fun a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training to deepen her knowledge of the practice but with no intention of ever becoming a teacher. Crippled by a lifelong fear of public speaking and a severe lack of self confidence, it took several years, a few life detours, and a move to San Antonio before Cassandra led her first yoga class. She quickly found that teaching yoga unlocked her inner confidence and passion for awakening others to their own transformation through yoga.
It was this passion that inspired Cassandra to create Mobile Om, taking yoga outside the confines of a studio and out into the community in order to connect with and empower more people to experience the benefits of the practice. As a teacher, Cassandra encourages students to engage with all parts of themselves with curiosity and compassion while discovering and connecting to their own inner source of wisdom. She combines mindfulness, intuitive alignment and hands on assists to create powerful and playful vinyasa sequences where messiness, laughter and high fives are strongly encouraged.

Yoga has eased away the tension from sitting, and declutters the mind through meditation.

Samantha stumbled upon her yoga journey by mistake. Her first official yoga class was after a cardio workout at a gym as a sort of stretch to end the day. That was the day her perspective forever changed about what yoga was and has led her to her passion today. Yoga has helped her realize the importance of bringing her mind and body into the present moment on a daily basis. She enjoys sharing this sense of peace with those who share their practice with her. Off the mat Sam can be found exploring the world with her kiddos, throwing a ball for one of her rescue pups or relaxing and enjoying a glass of wine with her husband.
