Emily has been teaching 6th,7th, and 8th graders in NYC public schools since 2004. When she saw the transformative effects of teaching mindfulness to her students, she knew that becoming a yoga teacher was the next step on her own path. She completed teacher training with Tara Glazier at Abhaya in December 2012, and is thrilled to bring these teachings to students of all ages. Emily offers deep gratitude to her all her teachers, yoga and otherwise, for sharing their gifts and inspiring her growth and dedication. She would especially like to thank Tara Glazier, Sara Neufeld, Elias Lopez, Carolyn Payne, John Wilkes, Jim Kincaid, and her mom–her first, and still most influential teacher.
Deanna began practicing yoga as a way to relieve back pain. Not only did it quickly relieve her physical suffering but it opened her heart to a new world and thus began her journey. Deanna recently completed her 200 Yoga Teacher Training with Abhaya Yoga and was awarded a scholarship through the Abhaya Yoga Foundation. Deanna approaches each class with mindfulness, love and devotion; grateful to have the opportunity to serve others.
