Who is Dawn Condon and why Connected Living...
Without balancing vibrant health and wellness, body, mind and spirit, nothing else in your life, works. It’s the one thing that affects the rest of your life. You deserve to live a life that honours you and helps you present your most powerful self to the world….to find the joy and bliss waiting right there.
Let me help you with that. I help men and women learn to enjoy eating, moving and living again. We can do this together. Life is for living and that means enjoying the riches out there. Your body wants to support your life, your soul wants you to live. Let’s make that connection between your health and wellness as a team…hand in hand.
I find joy in guiding and mentoring with the motto that “If it’s not fun, it’s not done”. Using yoga and meditation in a way that accessible to all to connect mind body and spirit. Using physical activity and healthy eating to promote a strong and flexible body. And proven life coaching skills to create habits and rituals that honour our desire to be our best, most powerful self.
My classes and workshops are a sweet combination of pragmatic reality, compassionate love and spirituality, attention to detail, and silly moments that remind us not to take ourselves so seriously.
I have dedicated my life to the wellness and fitness industry for over 20 years. As the owner of Connected Living, founder of Shine Om Yoga, creator of the Yoga For Real People series. I am also the owner and Wellness Co-ordinator of NEOMO Wellness, working with the NEOMO Family Medical Centre.
I am a certified Personal Trainer, and Group Fitness instructor, with many specialty certifications. I am a Stand Up for Balance Facilitator, Tiered Exercise Facilitator and Trainer. I am a certified yoga teacher and yoga therapist with the Sivinanda Yoga Vendanta and the Kripalu Yoga Institute. I love continuing my education by attending teaching intensives with Coby Kozlowski, Gary Krafstow, Esther Myers, Tom Myers, Baxter Bell, Sadi Nardini, Carol Krucoff, Leslie Kaminoff, Kari Harendorf, Lorin Roche to name a few. I am also certified with the Academy of Culinary Nutrition, and the Academy of Life Coaching as well as the Canadian Health Coach Alliance.
When my own life started to unravel, and then my health became an issue I couldn’t ignore it any longer. I dove deeply into upgrading my teaching, training and coaching skills.Having “been there, done that” gives me that extra drive to connect the teachings to our very real lives.
So, are you ready to fall in love and reclaim your life? I am committed to the purpose of helping you create your best most powerful self with the deepest integrity.
