Working with Deanna has been wonderful. Coming in as essentially a yoga newbie, in a mixed-level class with my coworkers, she has helped the whole class move through practice together. I wasn’t nervous, but I was very happy to have someone that I connected with to help guide us through the basics early on and let us take the time to get comfortable that we needed. Deanna fosters a relaxed environment, where you know you are getting good yoga instruction, but it’s not intimidating and we can all joke around a little. She has gradually ramped up the practice over the year, making sure it fits for everyone and their levels (with optional modifications as needed, of course). I can feel that I am stronger, and I love that feeling. And that’s just from once a week over a video connection. I can’t imagine where I would be with more access to classes or in person practice!
