Gioconda has been practicing, teaching and studying yoga for over 20 years & is registered with Yoga Alliance as an ERYT-500. Her passion for teaching and sharing yoga is equaled by her passion for learning. In 2012, she completed her Master's Degree in Transpersonal Psychology, and in 2014 she completed a three-year training in Somatic Experiencing, a trauma therapy approach designed by Peter Levine. She combines these trainings with her yoga background to offer individual and group support through her private practice. She teaches and leads teacher trainings nationally and is looking forward to returning to leading retreats internationally. When she’s not teaching or writing, she heads to the mountains of Tennessee and South Carolina, cultivating creativity and being in nature. You can find out more about Gioconda and her offerings at
