Deidra stumbled upon Yoga while studying Theatre at DePaul University 11 years ago and she hasn’t left her mat since. Deidra is a 500hr certified Yoga Instructor and has taught consistently since 2011.
As an artist, Deidra has explored movement and breath as natural ways of expression, where creativity and play open our heart, our mind, and our body.
Deidra is currently enrolled in the Iyengar Teacher Training at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York. Her study of Iyengar Yoga and her work in theatre help to shape the creative flow in her classes. Deidra’s teaching style is focused and fun; her classes are energetic and engaging. Through demonstration and detailed alignment Deidra both inspires and challenges her students. For her, Yoga is a purely healing and spiritually awakening practice. Deidra is grateful for her many mentors — such as Lara Warren, James Murphy, Tori Milner and Steve Prestianni, — who have inspired her journey as a student and a teacher.
