Deanna: Deanna first turned to Yoga to heal from two personal tragedies: the loss of her youngest brother to illness, followed closely by a significant loss of family assets during the 2008 real estate crash. Plunging into Yoga helped her regain her emotional center, cope with her pain and move ahead with her life. That experience inspired Deanna to devote herself to helping others discover the life-changing benefits of Yoga and wellness. She became certified to teach Bikram Yoga, then opened her first Yoga studio, and now operates three thriving studios in Danville, Livermore and San Ramon, with more locations on the way. Deanna has evolved considerably from her Bikram Yoga roots, as her studios now offer a rich variety of heated and non-heated Yoga classes, strength training, cycle, meditation and more. She will lead the “Business of Yoga” segment of the teacher training program. Deanna has gained extensive knowledge about operating a successful business, and looks forward to sharing her best practices with the teacher training cohort.
