Connie Garritsen

My yoga journey started about 4 1/2 years ago. I bought a Groupon to do heat yoga. My husband was in the late stages of cancer at the time, and I found peace in yoga. Actually, I think that yoga found me when I really needed it. As I continued my yoga journey and experienced changes in body, mind and spirit, I became totally hooked!

In 2016 I took teacher training at Azitala and started teaching at work and in the community. I received a lot of encouragement when I started doing yoga, and it is important to me to offer that to all students. I love yoga, I love teaching it, and I love the yoga community! I am excited and grateful to be part of the Azitala yoga community and look forward to teaching you. Namaste
