Connie Pease has been practicing and teaching yoga since 2005 . She initially studied with Cristene Dugan. She then studied with Beryl Binder Birch, one of the first and original “power” yoga programs. She also has studied with Bryan Kest, Leslie Karmnoff, Sadie Nardini, Yoganand Michael Carroll, and Suddha Weixler.
Connie’s “primary objective”, is turning more and more people on to a healthier, more peaceful lifestyle that continually challenges them to grow, and to teach a system of exercise that fully integrates the body, mind, and spirit. She is more interested in asking the right questions than knowing all the answers. She isn’t shy about challenging the anecdotal instruction we were taught in yoga classes of our past but still upholds the tradition with the reverence it deserves. She has a well-earned reputation for deepening the newest to the most seasoned practices, through humor balanced with a quest for authenticity.
Her yoga practice began transforming from its general sequence into something more personal. In a lot of ways, this is a liberating and awareness yoga class! Connie teaches at the Barn, Decatur Athletic Club, Decatur Library, and out of town venues.
“Yoga doesn’t want to change you- it wants to take care of you” Bryan Kest
