The Teaching Team

Conny Clemente started her yoga journey in 1999. Her first Hatha yoga class was in Sydney in a big hall as a backpacker. No idea what the teacher on the stage was saying, she followed the energy and postures of all the people who where present… a somewhat overwhelming experience!

Back home in Germany, Conny spent some time practicing Kundalini yoga however, it wasn’t until she was traveling again and had the opportunity to practice yoga in Mexico that she found a deep connection to the asanas (yoga postures). Conny returned to Australia in 2005 and it was here that her true yoga journey began with gifted yoga teacher and friend, Tina-Marie.

Conny was inspired to completed 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Sacred Valley, Peru.

She truly found her passion in Vinyasa Yoga at Cosmic Yoga Studio in Adelaide, and has undertaken a number study courses with internationally revered teachers such as Simon Borg-Olivier, Tara Judelle and Jennifer Creszenko.

Conny has had the privilege of working as Massage Therapist for the Adelaide Crows, as a Yoga Teacher at Cosmic Yoga Studio, and now has her own yoga and massage therapy business; Ananda Yoga & Massage. As well as teaching yoga classes at True North Yoga, Conny also provides Relaxation Massage, Remedial Massage, Sports Massage and Cupping at True North Yoga one day per week.

Conny guides a beautiful strong, healing and invigorating yoga practice taught from the heart. Her love for the practice and passion for giving back to the community are tangible and inspiring.

Alana first found yoga when she was looking for a new direction in her life. Within weeks of practicing she noticed a shift in herself and quickly fell in love with the transforming effect of yoga. The more she experienced this effect, the more she wanted to know about this ancient practice. This search for deeper knowledge led her to completing yoga teacher training with Shantarasa Yoga.

The lessons that she learnt about the practice and herself throughout this training were life changing. Alana truly believes that yoga has the power to heal, transform and enrich lives and she is now passionate about sharing her knowledge as a teacher.

Her classes are designed for everyone and focus on linking breath with movement. She endeavours to teach classes that ensure that everyone has space to explore themselves within the postures and find their own rhythms throughout the class.

Alana sees the practice of yoga as a sanctuary. “Regardless of what is going on externally in the world around us, we have the ability to practice anytime to access the place of peace that exists within us all.”
