Deanna Evans (E-RYT) has been teaching yoga and meditation for ten years. Her background includes classic Hatha, Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Kundalini Yoga. She has studied and continues to be inspired by senior teachers Tias Little, Shiva Rea, Mark Whitwell and others. Her meditation and spiritual practice is a culmination of years of self-inquiry – traveling deep within as well as internationally, and drawing from the spiritual teachings of Satya Sai Baba and Paramhansa Yogananda. Deanna distills from this vast background to create inspiring heart-centered, alignment-based classes incorporating creative and often spontaneous sequencing. Deanna encourages her students to approach their practice with a deep awareness of their physical and subtle bodies, and to face challenges on and off the mat with ease and joy through the vehicle of the breath, a still mind, and an open heart.
