Devon began yoga as a young person looking for balance physically and to ground her mentally. She found both! She began with a set sequence and studied more athletic styles. Now she craves a slower, steadier flow. Devon is often on the move as a mother and a running enthusiast. She has completed a 200 hour training with Mimi Loureiro, a 500 hour training with Barbara Benagh, and studied with many others along the way.
I began my yoga studies as a teenager when I accompanied a neighbor to a community class. After that, I hit the library borrowed a book and following the sequences in books. Through the years I explored many styles of yoga including Iyengar, and a variety of heated yoga and freestyle approaches. Some were good for me then and I enjoyed; other styles were never a good match. Eventually I studied Astanga yoga and discovered an awakening. I learned to slow down. I became a certified teacher after completing Mimi Loureiro’s teacher training. Mimi, an incredible gifted expert taught me how to teach and sequence a class. I continued with a 500 hour training with Barbara Benagh who gave me space to explore asana in a new way. I continue to find inspiration and practice with Doug Keller, Richard Freeman and Sarah Powers. My journey means that I teach an athletic O2 style yoga class and a mellow alignment based slower flow. I love teaching pre- and postnatal yoga classes. My classes are fun and playful, allowing time for somatic awareness, adjustment and modification. There is time to pause and linger. I guide my students to move mindfully through a balanced practice. Intelligence, patience and attention mean the practice is rooted in the breath. I am a mother, forever student, outdoor enthusiast and an enthusiastic runner in the making.
