About Deanne

Hello friends,

Here is a place for you to get to know me a little better. I hope to have the privilege of learning about you at one of my retreats. I am a lover of yoga, travel, adventure, running, Wonder Woman, the mountains and the ocean. I am a yoga teacher, Realtor, mother of 3 and wife. I love excitement and thrive on adventure! I am a long distance runner, participating in everything from half marathons to ultra marathons in the mountains. There is a certain sense of freedom that comes with running for me, it seems as though I sweat out my stress and worries while I’m flying through the trails. There is a quote that rings true for me in all aspects of my life; “The cure for anything is salt water. Sweat, tears or the sea.” – Isak Dinesen

I am very passionate about travelling, and my dream is to see the world! I’ve been to Greece, Iceland, Bali, Thailand, Gili Islands, China, the Bahamas, Florida, Hawaii, a driving trip down the west coast, many areas of Mexico, and tons of places in between. Generally if there’s mountains or ocean, I’m there! I love to experience the culture of the places I visit, I hold more value in experiences that material possessions.

I started my yoga journey 7 years ago. My intentions were purely physical, I sought out yoga to enhance my running, challenge my body, and diversify my fitness options. It didn’t take long for it to become so much more. In my practice I was strong, safe, confident, supported. I fell head over heels in love with my practice. I took many workshops, and attended retreats. I explored many different styles including bikram, ashtanga, vinyasa, hatha, power, yin and restorative in both warm, hot and regular temperature rooms. During a 5 week stay in Mexico with my family, I made my practice a daily priority, and quickly saw growth in both my asanas and deep within. I decided to take a
teacher training, and registered for my 200 hour certification. It was an amazing experience that has taught me more than I could ever describe. Looking back, I’m learning that yoga is, and has been what I need it to be at the time. Whether I’ve known it or not.

For those of you looking to enhance and challenge your physical body, I assure you, you’ll find that here. If you’re seeking travel and adventure, you’ve found it! I also know the value of balance, and the contentment in being present.

All of that being said; my biggest goal is to give to my students, colleagues, peers, and fellow yogis the same gift I’ve received in this journey. All of the reasons yoga has felt like home to me. All of the times it’s been exactly what I need at the time. I endeavour to provide a space in the universe that manifests safety, hope, strength, peace, love, humility, humbleness, guidance, being present, acceptance, solitude, and everything else that you need.
