Kundalini Yoga is a technology thousands of years old that enables each person to tap into his or her own potential
to grow, to learn and to develop the inner strength to face life's challenges successfully. This sacred yogic discipline promotes physical health, stimulates the potential of the mind, and touches one's innermost being. Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, is recognized as one of the major systems of yoga instruction. Sat Nam
Deanna draws from her background in Hatha, Iyengar, Ashtanga, and Kundalini yoga to create inspiring heart-centered,
alignment based classes incorporating creative and often spontaneous sequencing. Her yoga classes consists of classic Hatha yoga asanas (postures) often in vinyasa (a steady flow of postures linked with the breath), Kundalini inspired sets, pranayama (breath-work), mantra (chanting), meditation, and information and awareness on the chakras (energy centers of the body). The fundamentals of yoga asanas: alignment, awareness of breath, balance, strength and flexibility are always emphasized.
