Yoga & Personal Fitness Training

Connie Reeves began doing yoga in 2001 because as a professional ballroom dance teacher and competitor it helped to make her more flexible and balanced.  Long term she found it helped with reducing aches, pains and injuries. After learning more about proper alignment and techniques and experiencing first hand the effects it had on her body she began to pursue teaching in 2008 to help her dance and future yoga students. Connie completed her IYT 200 hour RYT program at Haleybird Yoga in June 2016.

She has also completed:
IYT 500 hr E-RYT Yoga Certified
Certified inY12SR, Gentle Yoga, Senior Fitness and Chair Yoga
Student - Inner Peace Yoga Therapy (600 hours completed)

Connie’s focus is to work with students who are interested in learning proper alignment, technique, and restorative practices.  She hopes to help people learn to be more in tune with their body, relieve aches and pains and possibly prolong the time they need before their body requires surgeries or medications. She also wants to empower people and help them to accept and take the time to give back to their lives.

Connie is currently working on her Yoga Therapist certification through Inner Peace Yoga Therapy with an emphasis on Functionl Yoga Therapy and Yoga for Addiction Recovery. She also has certifications in Yoga for 12 Step Recovery (Y12SR), Gentle Yoga, Chair Yoga, and Senior Fitness.
