Yoga at Connies


Opened in 2005, the studio sits upon a six acre farmstead in a refurbished barn in Latham, Il, Connie Pease has developed a place of solace from the stress of everyday life. Excellent teaching, a friendly atmosphere, and beautiful surroundings are all part of the studio’s commitment to quality. Grow your practice out in the country. 


Connie Pease has been practicing and teaching yoga since 2005. Initially practicing  with Cristene Dugan, Connie has also practiced with, Bryan Kest, one of the first and original “power” yoga programs, Beryl Binder Birch, Leslie Karmnoff, Sadie Nardini, Yoganand Michael Carroll, and Suddha Weixler. She is certified, but not going to use labels which doesn’t describe her yoga journey.

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. Although she is more interested in asking the right questions than knowing all the answers. Connie 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.

Connie has recently completed her RYT 500.

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 instructs 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.”
