A number of years ago Constance experienced an epiphany when a very painful shoulder had her in its grip. It hit her that she’d better “move it or lose it”, and knew it had to be through yoga.
As her practice grew, it helped her get through some challenging times. The union of breath and movement was so natural and inspiring (the word “inspire” is derived from the Latin word “inspirer,” meaning “to breathe”).
Constance never expected to become a yoga teacher – she trained in Mexico to deepen her practice and to give herself a break after dealing with illness and a death in the family. When a teaching opportunity fell into her lap, she happily welcomed it.
As it turned out, her 15 years of teaching experience (as a Montessori teacher in London, and a preschool teacher in New York City) served her well – to be an effective yoga teacher, or indeed an instructor of any kind, one needs to inspire that expansive child-like mind.
Currently her interests as an artist, designer and teacher are coming together. She has developed a series of art workshops that help participants cultivate a conscious connection to their intuition and creativity, which relies quite a bit on body awareness, breath and play.
By freeing herself and others from conventional artistic standards, using found or recycled materials and finding exciting new ways of image making, she hopes to help reacquaint people with their inner child and joyously reignite their creative spark.
