Deirdre has been Studying Yoga since 2000 and teaching since 2007. She writes, My studies with Purusha Hickson transformed my life for which I am ever grateful. This propelled me to study further with Yogaworks in LA. Where I met such teachers as Max Strom, Richard Miller and Lisa Walford. I taught at the first Studio Yogaworks opened. I also experienced teaching at a Drug and Alcohol rehab, at a center for delinquent youths and a Senior Center. The yoga that I share today is very different from the Yoga I taught 10 years ago. As I have experienced physical challenges in my life, my practice has changed to accommodate this. So my teaching has evolved to a place of compassion, kindness and understanding that as long as we do our best in this moment then we avail ourselves of the opportunity to rise higher in the future. Moving with awareness to the rhythm of the breath, going deeper into our inward journey to that place of peace and harmony. Feeling gratitude and acceptance of where we are in this magnificent journey called Life.
"Yoga is like music: the rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life." BKS Iyengar
