Yoga has been a wonderful part of Morgan Brown's life for almost 8 years. She says, "it allows me to create a space for mindfulness and relaxation while connecting to movements within the body. Growing up in south-west Arkansas, yoga was not a big part of my life until college. I found it while searching for an exercise that could help with my anxiety and joint pain. Once I tried yoga, I quickly realized I had to share this experience with others. I completed my 200 -hr yoga training at Yoga Deza in Spring 2016." Her favorite styles of classes to teach are Vinyasa and Yin yoga. She enjoys learning each of her students' individual needs to better suit their yoga practice, "Combining creative sequencing with a bit of playfulness, my students grow stronger, more flexible, and relaxed both on and off the mat."

Brittany Wallace was hesitant to try yoga at first. She heard over and over "you’ll love the savasana part at the end" but didn’t understand what yoga was. She says she went to herfirst yoga class and soon after, the tension in her jaw and in lower back didn’t bother me as much. She continued to take classes and began to enjoy the practice of focusing on breath and moving without thought. Today, Brittany is a Vinyasa 200-hr certified teacher and working her 300-hr certification. She says, "I focus on the breath and then incorporate the mind work with the physical movement. It is our breath that lets our mind and body create our flow state. I understand we have challenges throughout our practice of yoga and that is what creates our story. I now appreciate and have the knowledge behind what yoga is and why I was told I would love Savasana."

Savannah McCrary first fell into a yoga class due to fitness, and the effects of her first class left her feeling more calm then she had felt since being a child. She says, "my childhood was wild, in all the best ways, and all the not so best ways. When I found yoga, it changed my life. When I rolled out my mat, and gave myself just an hour of my time, to sit, be still, and build a relationship with my breath that I didn't know was possible; it was a feeling I couldn't get elsewhere. I was completely enraptured with how clear headed and calm I felt afterwards and how it started to affect all areas of my life; how I addressed relationships, health, creative stagnicity, and even how I brushed my teeth, all shifted! It was a part of my life that I felt had just been waiting for me to arrive. I want to help a world of chaotic stress and pressure find their own stillness, and help guide them towards unshedding darkness and letting their own divine light shine through while receiving all of the other juicy effects practicing yoga provides!"
