Deanna was born and raised in San Diego, CA. After 30 years there and several years working in collections, accounting, and administrative duties with sales teams, she found herself looking towards a different path.

After meeting her now husband, the couple decided to move to Arizona to be closer to her sister and pursue a career in health and wellness.

In October 2012, Deanna received her Personal Training Certification from ACE Fitness. During the course of her studies she discovered hot yoga and fell in love. After completing studies for personal training, Deanna decided her ultimate goal was to be a yoga instructor and give back to a community that has given so much to her.

Yoga brought Deanna a new found peace and love internally and externally. It has shown not only on the mat but also within her daily life. Yoga brought her to the understanding of acceptance, confidence, letting go, release of judgement and ego, and most importantly self love.

Giving back and sharing the energy, the love and the passion of the yoga community with others has been rewarding and humbling for her. The journey has allowed her to fully embrace life, happiness and love.
