Desi is a dedicated Yogini (Female Yoga Practitioner). Her mother was a disciple of Goswami Kriyananda of the Temple of Kriya Yoga in Chicago. She learned meditation as a child, and fell in love with asana after college. She has studied with many celebrated teachers, and Desi has created several Yoga DVD’s and products. Some of the classes that Desi currently teaches include;
Vinyasa Flow Yoga
Vinyasa Yoga is a fluid, almost dance like style of Yoga that links breath and movement. This dynamic practice is inspirational to both the body and the mind. Each class is a new journey into the self . Desirée’s classes are designed to promote strength, endurance, flexibility and sensitivity. This class is a wonderful way to heal the body and reconnect with a sense of joy, peace, and clarity that come from the regular practice of Yoga.
Yoga for Personal Trainers
I developed a program that teaches trainers and fitness instructors how to integrate Yoga asanas (poses) into exercise program design. NCCPT, the National Council for Certified Personal Trainers offers continuing education units to trainers who purchase and complete ‘An Introduction to Yoga for Personal Trainers.’ AFAA, NASM, and ISSA are also available to group fitness instructors and trainers.
Yoga Dance Fusion
Learn to Dance Your Practice! An exhilarating form of Yoga that incorporates basic elements of dance throughout. Rhythm, grace and a sense of freedom infuse this Vinyasa Flow style practice. Music is an integral part of this practice in that it helps set the mood for the movement. Tribal rhythms, traditional mantra, and contemporary music all inspire the movement. The result is a beautifully choreographed continuous dynamic sequence that radiates with fluidity, power, and grace.
360 Yoga Flow
360 Yoga Flow is multidimensional movement linked by arcs, ellipses and spirals. The movement is fluid and is inspired by the great luminaries, the sun and the moon to enlighten you from the inside out. Come alive with the grace and power of Yoga, Dance and the spirit of celebration. 360 Yoga Flow incorporates the use of the Lululemon 360 Yoga mat, designed by Desi.
