Deanna, Founder, Joya
I found Yoga when I needed it the most in my life. My husband and I were heavily invested in the Real Estate market, him being a Real Estate Broker while I worked for a mortgage bank. We owned several homes and several Real Estate offices throughout California. When the market crashed in 2008, we lost everything. I was at the lowest point in my life. I was feeling very depressed about getting laid-off when we just had a baby a few months before. I was also the heaviest that I had ever been. Years prior, a good friend of mine who had practiced Yoga for many years recommended that I try it.
Within two weeks after trying my first Hot Yoga class, I was completely hooked. Yoga helped rescue me from my darkest days. It was within my first month of regular practice that I knew I would one day become a teacher and own my own studio. I wanted to help spread this amazing practice that brought me so much love, peace, and confidence.
I’m now living my dreams as a successful Yoga & Wellness studio owner with multiple locations and more on the way. I’ve manifested an entirely new life, one where I am living my most “impossible” dreams. I love taking and educating others on what I call a spiritual fitness journey and manifesting our most desired life through visualization.
