The idea that yoga is a practice is what Dede loves most about the discipline and what keeps her coming back to her yoga mat. Dede loves the simple physical practice of getting back in after you fall out; it is easy to see how this practice extends itself to the world outside of the yoga studio.
Dede teaches an active, concise, and modifiable vinyasa flow class, where dynamic movement is used to link breath and movement. She also encourages students to explore all avenues of yoga to learn which styles best suit them, and when it’s most advantageous to practice a particular style.
Dede has been practicing yoga for about 10 years and teaching for nearly eight. There are an array of teachers from whom Dede draws inspiration, yet her most influential teachers are Claire Mark, Geri Bleier, Tom Quinn and Quinn Kearney, at Yogaview, where she completed level 1 and level 2 teacher trainings
