Meet the Instructor

Deanna’s love affair with yoga began in 1999 when she stepped into an Anusara yoga class in her hometown of Red Bank, NJ. Since then she has not gone anywhere without the mat and has made yoga not only her lifestyle, but her passion and career. This passion comes through in everything she teaches.

Deanna is an E-RYT 200 and RYT 500 (registered yoga teacher ), a YACEP, and a Prenatal RYT (PRYT) registered through Yoga Alliance. She has a background as a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, AFAA Group Fitness Instructor, Zumba, and Spin Instructor. Deanna began her journey in health and wellness in 2002 when she became a group fitness instructor and began teaching beginner’s yoga classes (as well as many others) at her college, Clemson University. This led her to a lifetime commitment to help others become the absolute best versions of themselves they could be. With over 1,500 hours of teaching workshops, group, and private classes she is now available to lead classes in the Jersey Shore area.

What you will receive in her classes and private sessions are intelligent alignment based practices. She encourages physical and spiritual growth and integrates this into her teachings in a dynamic, interesting way.
