As a member of the Bloom team, Deanna's intention is to cultivate a warm and nurturing environment for the community and for each individual's yoga practice to flourish. Her diverse skill set in fine arts, hospitality, yoga and pilates operations management helps her support and celebrate the incredible community at Bloom.
Deanna's personal yoga journey began after a traumatic injury that required she find an alternative method of chronic pain management. That pursuit eventually led her to The School of Sacred Arts in Bali, Indonesia, where she completed her 200 RYT teacher training certification. She went on to pursue specialized training in Yin, Restorative and Meditation, and she is currently finishing her 500 RYT teacher training with Moksha Yoga in Chicago. This quote from T.K.V. Desikachar exemplifies her passion for her practice, "the success of Yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships."
Deanna's love of travel has shown her all but one of the 50 states, Canada, Mexico, much of Europe, Asia and Central America. Her time living in Seattle and Alaska has left an indelible impression on her heart. She loves to cook and bake, and you won't believe her baked goods are vegan and gluten free! Now returned to her hometown, she is thrilled to grow with Bloom.
