My name is Cassandra Yasko and as the founder of Cloud Nine Supplements I believe that positive self-care can begin with a natural supplement regimen, approached from a “whole”-istic standpoint that supports both body and mind.
My mother is an acclaimed integrative health care doctor, specializing in autism and chronic neurological conditions for over two decades. As a result, I grew up in a holistically minded family, learning about the benefits of natural supplementation from a very young age. Throughout the years as I matured, my interest in holistic health care increased while assisting my mother in her alternative health care practice. Along with the knowledge I learned from my mother, I also studied health care at college, receiving a BA in Health & Dance.
The concept for a supplement line with a dancer’s hectic training regimen and an athlete’s physically demanding lifestyle came to me while I was training intensively as a dancer in NYC. While dancing six hours a day, in addition to cross training and performing, I was struggling to stay physically agile and mentally alert. I was searching for supplements that would help relieve the emotional and physical stress my body underwent on a daily basis. However, I couldn’t find a natural supplement line that suited my very specific needs as a professional dancer and athlete.
In addition to my dance background, I am also a huge yoga enthusiast, having achieved my RYT yoga instructor certification and have been personally practicing yoga for years. I truly understand what it means to focus on the whole body, inside and out, mentally and physically. While a person can be mentally, spiritually, and emotionally grounded there can still be health gaps and oversights.
Thus, as a direct result from my personal lifestyle and experiences, my goal was to create a supplement line that was naturally based, effective, and affordable that all yogis, dancers, and athletes could benefit from.
Cloud Nine can add an essential element to your daily routine, providing nutrition and natural supplementation that can support all bodies in their personal lifestyles and journeys. Here at Cloud Nine we have created a natural line of supplements that are designed to help address several needs with blends of multiple herbs, nutrients, and vitamins within each formulation (such as InflamAway, All in One, and Germs be Gone). We also offer unique supplements in a spray form, which are a great alternative for those who dislike swallowing capsules or have digestive issues.
As the founder, my hope is that Cloud Nine will raise awareness on the importance of natural supplementation in support of an active, healthy lifestyle. My mission is to support and enable athletes to train stronger, safer and more naturally, to extend the performance life span of a dancer’s career, and add to the health and happiness of a yogi’s lifestyle.
I truly believe that if you take care of your body, it will repay the favor many times over.
And I said to my body, softly, ‘I want to be your friend.’
It took a long breath and replied,
‘I have been waiting my whole life for this.’
With love, peace, and gratitude,
