Namaste! I’m Concetta Codding

All her life, Concetta Codding has been drawn towards something greater than herself. Searching for a greater purpose in the Universe and drawing upon its energy, Concetta studied in Connecticut and received her 200-Hour Yoga Alliance certification in 2017. She went to Peru in July 2018 for her 300 hour Shamanic Yoga Teacher training. She is currently a certified 500 hour Yoga Teacher. Since her first training, she has been locally leading classes in the hope of teaching how to breathe, meditate, flow and ultimately heal. She received her Reiki 1 certificate in 2017 and Reiki 2 & 3 in Sedona, Arizona in 2018. She founded the New England Meditation Group. The New England Meditation group currently consists of over 600 members and is growing each day.

After participating in Cacao ceremony in Peru and building a relationship with this transformative plant medicine, Concetta facilitates Cacao ceremonies and shares this ancient wisdom. She offers a space to connect to one’s inner world, and make deeper connections with like-hearted people. She loves to come together with the sacred heart medicine, Cacao.

She reminds students to find and return to the eternal present moment. At the end of class, Yin poses lead to a calming, balancing effect on the body and mind guiding us into  sacred savasana.

Concetta infuses her classes with a tranquil energy upholding tradition through breathwork, mantra, and philosophy. Music is an essential part of class, specifically inspirational, devotional, and healing music. Come join us for a journey into the power within that is for everyone who wants to acquire the power to understand, learn, and heal.
