"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. " 

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Yoga is Medicine

We need quality Yoga Teachers who can lead with their heart and change lives”

Have a vis​ion for your life

Too many of us live the lives defined by the expectations set by others.  We tread along in our journey without a compass "settling" for good enough.  

We get pushed and pulled by life demands and before we know it, our time's up.  

Lets get clear on who YOU are so that you can LIVE the life you were meant to live.  

Lack of confidence is a disease​

Most of us are insecure because we don't know what we're capable of.  If you realized how special you are, you'd be confident beyond the narratives that play in our heads.  

Our training will bring out the truth of who you are so that you can share you gift with the world.  

Yoga was instrumental in my own healing with a chronic autoimmune condition, Lupus.  It kept me focused, strong, and positive during the most challenging times."

What Our Students Say


I honestly feel differently about my life having gone through this process.   I have shifted my expectations to inviting grace, joy, and gratitude into my life everyday in hopes that I will never achieve perfection, but always be learning and embracing myself as a work in progress.  I guess through compassion and acceptance you could say I have embraced the heart of a Buddhist.

Thanks to Dr. Connie, I truly enjoy teaching and trust in my ability to teach. 

Kristin Cleare


I truly believe the Alkaline Wellness Institute's Yoga Teacher certification has had a tremendous impact on the person I am today. It is so much more than just a yoga teacher training; this program has changed me from the inside out. Still being rather new to yoga when I began my teacher training, I learned so much about the history of yoga, including different forms of classical yoga all the way to modern yoga practiced today.  I am confident in my ability to teach yoga.

Leslie Lipsius


I came into the program with a little knowledge of yoga and was provided so much learning, about yoga and about myself. It was a balance of learning who I was and what I wanted to achieve and really focusing on the history of yoga, learning the subtleties of the yoga poses we focused on and how to make yoga a restorative process for participants. I walked away with a sense of gratitude and knowing that I can help my clients get to another place in their lives.

Word From Dr. Connie

Dr. Connie Jeon 

Hi, I'm
Dr. Connie 

I found Yoga at the lowest point in my life.  Through series of health challenges, Yoga provided me with an outlet to find peace and joy in fully being "present" in my life.  It's helped me to recover from Lupus both physically, mentally, and spiritually.  

I've also witnessed and experienced poor instruction that can lead to injury and degeneration.  

So I created the curriculum that can transform you in ways that you can't imagine.  I hope you allow me to lead you into not only understanding Yoga as a physical practice, but as a life coach to cultivate love for yourself.

    "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
