At age 34 yoga found Karen in a Treatment Center where she was recovering from a life long addiction to alcohol and drugs. Karen has since recovered from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body and has dedicated her life to the practice, study, and teachings of yoga.

Karen is the owner and operator of Blissed Out Yoga and Fitness Studio where she uses the space as her platform to help others heal so that they may discover their truest nature.

Karen studies meditation for awakened consciousness under the guide of her beloved teacher Juan Ruiz Napari and incorporates his teachings into all her dynamic, therapeutic, alignment based classes.

Karen creates a safe and non competitive space for all students to dive beneath the surface of their daily lives to find deeper meaning and inspiration. She mindfully guides them to become their own inner gurus so that they may embody the gracious host of their experiences, the curious and fearless explorer of their bodies, and the conscious creators of their existence.

Her classes offer creative sequences, intentionally themed, emphasizing proper alignment, focused pranayama, mindfulness, and meditation in several styles of yoga.

For Karen her practice continues long after she rolls up her mat for it is a way of life. Yoga was once Karen’s way out but has since become her way in. She will forever be dedicated to the study of spiritual texts and has recently completed her own manuals for future trainings. Karen has also found immense excitement in hosting awakening retreats around the world.

Gently spiritual in her approach, she hopes to help awaken all of humanity one practice at a time.

Favourite style(s) of yoga to practice/teach: hatha & vinyasa, ecstatic dance

Deanna has been teaching body-positive fitness and dance since 2013 all over British Columbia. In 2018 she completed both her 200 hour yoga teacher training as well as her Bellyfit certification. Functional & enjoyable movement has always been at the forefront of Deanna’s life; whether travelling to new countries and teaching yoga on the beach, or holding sacred space at her favourite studio; Blissed Out Yoga & Fitness.

Truthfully, yoga was not always her favourite. Deanna grew up playing physical team sports like soccer, baseball and volleyball and when a friend brought her to her first yoga class, she was bored out of her mind. The practice felt too slow, too easy and wasn’t productive enough in her young eyes. Over time, and in many different countries, she began exploring unique styles and teachers of yoga and began to fall in love with the simplicity and ease with which one can connect to their own body. Her life previously was lived solely from her masculine energy; constantly seeking to produce greater results, instead of learning to find joy in the present moment. Now, as a Reiki level 2 healer, meditation teacher, certified Holistic Health Coach, motivational speaker and Intuitive Life Coach, Deanna helps women to balance their masculine and feminine energy centres to experience nourishing and vibrant lives and businesses everyday.
