Joanne Conningon has been a yoga practitioner since 1972 and teacher since holding her first class in Paonia in 1985. From there she held classes for 25 years in Aspen and Crestone, Colorado, and most recently in Tuscany, Italy for 8 years. She has hosted numerous retreats in Mexico and Italy as well as the U.S..
Through studies with many senior Iyengar teachers over the years, Joanne imparts the knowledge of alignment and the use of props in her classes. She adds to that her own understanding of the balance between the physical aspects of asana and the spiritual experience inherent when breath awareness binds the two components.
Her classes are a meditative flow of postures designed to offer a personal internal experience with the guidance of a long-term experienced practitioner.
