Deanna’s Class Description:
Aiyana Yoga, which means, “forever blooming,” focuses on strengthening core muscles, finding correct alignment for our unique body, and using the breath to both create energy and encourage relaxation. Deanna believes that we can practice with humor, self-acceptance, and the holistic approach of yoga as a lifestyle.
Classes always begin with a gentle warm-up to prepare the body for a dynamic flow-style class.
