My very first yoga class was for the Elm’s Nursing Home nurses in Ponca Nebraska in 1995. I then branched out to teaching yoga classes to St. Luke’s Hospital and Morningside College. After a few years, I decided to strike out on my own and opened Yoga, Etc. (now The Yoga College) in 2001. I have been teaching between 15 – 20 classes a week for the last 9 years. I continue my research and study of yoga most every single day of my life. I have designed private and group classes for cancer patients, those suffering from back pain, emphysema, depression, heart disease, addiction, muscle weakness from illness, fatigue, pregnancy and arthritis. I teach intermediate to advanced classes to those who want to pursue the more intricate and challenging yoga postures as well as classes for the very beginner. I have written articles for the past three years for the Sioux City Journal and designed and presented numerous comprehensive meditation and chakra workshops. I am open to anyone who wants to explore how yoga might help them get relief and restoration.
Connie’s other passion is belly dancing. She has belly danced for as long as she can remember and has taught belly dance for nine years. Connie choreographs music for and is the director of the Desert Angels Belly Dance Troupe. She has performed for the Sioux City Orchestra, colleges, renaissance fairs and for private parties. Her teacher, Lea Logan, has traveled the globe entertaining with belly dancing
