Events Coordinator and Operations Assistant
Deana is recently completing a 200-hour Yoga Certified Teacher program through Blue Yoga Nyla. A life-long learner and teacher, she came to yoga after retirement. A National Board Certified Teacher of English, she absolutely loved teaching seventh-and-eighth-graders for over 20 years, a career she began at age 40. One highlight of her teaching life was traveling to over a dozen countries to support teachers and students in impoverished or struggling communities. These experiences taught her the importance of service and gratitude, values that she finds lived at Blue Yoga Nyla. Dealing with a chronic knee problem and fibromyalgia, Deana discovered many opportunities to improve flexibility, gain strength, and find peace on the mat, and she plans to help others find what they need from the practice of yoga.
