Desi began studying Iyengar yoga in 2000. As a young adult, the practice was integral in creating a healthier self-image. It has since become a dependable lodestar, offering a foundation of physical and mental well-being throughout pregnancies, parenthood, and beyond.
She has taught since 2003 and enthusiastically shares with her students the many benefits of yoga.
Desi is grateful to have studied with many skilled teachers, especially Richard McLaughlin, Nancy Roberts, Janice Vien and Jill Johnson for their mentorship and support. None of this would be possible without B.K.S. Iyengar, who dedicated his entire life to making yoga accessible to every person young and old, healthy and infirm.
When not teaching, Desi loves to spend time with her family, be in the woods, and explore new places.
