Desi has a new Prenatal DVD that will debut in Spring of 2015, as well as a book on the Prenatal Yoga & Fitness.

Your Goals:

Why You Became an Instructor:

I fell in love with the esoteric teachings as a young girl. I did not learn asana until my early 20’s. Now I cannot imagine my life without either. Movement has always been a passion. I started teaching fitness and dance in college, and it all brought me full circle back to Yoga, and a sincere desire to help others discover the joy of movement.

Where You Teach:

Exhale, private law firm, and teacher trainings at Loyola Marymount University

What You Teach

Vinyasa Flow, prenatal yoga, mommy and me yoga.

Who/What Inspires You

Mothers from around the world, and my own beautiful family.

My dear friend Patricia Jones started a non-profit organization called PS I Love You Foundation that brings Yoga into at-risk schools. I have taught for the program, and recently asked her if we can usher it into other schools (my son’s school) as a way of Yoga to more children.

She is an inspiration as a friend, mother, and philanthropist.

Favorite Quote:

“If you have built castles in the sky. Let not your dreams go to waste; Just build the foundations under them.” ” ―Henry David Thoreau

Side Note:

I have a very specific goal of bringing the mission of health and wellness to television in 2015. I see so many reality shows these days that have an enormous platform, but I am not really sure what it is for. There are amazing personalities, but I would love to see this format stand for improving lives.
