I started off with wanting to teach yoga and offer holistic nutrition because I thought I would really enjoy it. I do, a lot. I love the feeling I get after teaching a great class, or the thanks from someone who benefited from my insight. That’s an important part of choosing what to do with ones life, but what’s kept me feeling confident, empowered, and motivated so deeply is my call to service. I want to offer my experience and insight from a place of open-heart, open-mind, awareness, and compassion. I offer acceptance and non-judgment, interest in your journey, and whatever help and information I have. I truly believe in the divinity of all creatures, and am humbled by the opportunity to serve in the way that I am able. It is with my absolute pleasure that I make my offerings!
Hi, I’m Desiree!
I am a holistic nutritionist, yoga teacher (and student), and reiki practitioner. I love to learn and study, put theory into practice, and grow when and where I can. My life is full
of delicious vegan food, cats, incredible community, art and creativity, books, and adventure. I have been practicing yoga since 2008, and teaching for 4. Chanting was what first really inspired and drew me in about the practice, but I stayed for what it offered me. Yoga has been an unfolding for me. It’s given me a tool to see, heal, and grow the various aspects of myself on an intimate and conscious level. Meditation has probably been the most profound tool for transformation and healing I’ve experienced, and I am thankful for to the lineage of teachers and practitioners who continue to support and pass on the Buddha’s teaching of vipassana. My own health and wellness struggles, interests, and experiments spurred on my interest in holistic nutrition.
There is so much good to come.
