Connie is a teacher. All the jobs she does involve passing on her passion and knowledge to others. Her passion for teaching takes her across the spectrum of Mathematics, ballroom and latin dance, and yoga. Physical expression is very important to her; yoga and dance give her an opportunity to move and challenge her body and, through teaching, to enable her students to do the same.
Connie believes that knowledge about our own bodies leads us to find our most graceful selves. When we know how to move safely and when we build stability, strength, and flexibility, we find freedom of movement not only in our yoga practice, but in all aspects of our life. She is always amazed at the diversity of bodies and the capabilities of each one of them.
In yoga, she credits her teacher Kevin Elander for passing on his knowledge and irreverence and showing her that yoga can be a beautiful form of self-expression. She is grateful for her Mandala community and the respite provided every time she steps on her mat here.
