Conor Valentino has completed over 800 formal hours of training in alignment yoga, vinyasa, and Thai yoga bodywork. He has over 3,000 hours of experience teaching group classes, over 300 hours working with students one-on-one, and nearly 400 hours training yoga teachers. His breath-centered sequences are thoughtful, challenging, and adapted specifically for the students he is teaching.

He has worked within a broad range of conditions: from common injuries to adults with multiple sclerosis, children with developmental disabilities, and people simply looking to find more balance, strength, and flexibility in their bodies. Regardless of level or starting point, Conor is committed to helping his students develop their physical, mental, and emotional awareness.

Conor has sought out the highest caliber education in New York City, including training in backcare and scoliosis with Alison West at Yoga Union, so that he may deliver the best results for his students. Whether in private sessions or in his group classes, you can expect to receive personalized instruction.

100 Hours Back Care and Scoliosis Certification, Yoga Union, Spring 2018

200 Hours Alignment Yoga Certification, Yoga Union, Fall 2017

Conor’s classes are always fantastic. Whether he’s focusing on a specific part of the body, or an over-all yoga concept, or just going with the ‘flow’, he always manages to teach a challenging but sensible class. This is not just yoga as a workout. It is hard yoga with a purpose. I can’t recommend him highly enough.

I have done numerous yoga classes with Conor. He is a very accomplished Yoga teacher, who has an extensive knowledge of the body and of healing practices. He guides you step by step into each pose. His thoughtfulness is remarkable and one is touched by his kindness and spirituality but also by his lovely sense of humor. He is serious in his teachings and pushes you to do your best. He is also compassionate and loving.
