Deanne combines her anatomy knowledge from her career as a health professional, as well as her massage training and over 25 years of yoga experience to help people to live and move with ease. Deanne is one of 6 Australian Roll Model® Method certified practitioners, authorized to use the Roll Model® brand methods and products. Working closely with athletes, sports people, clinics, corporate groups and yoga students Deanne sees first hand the enormous results that myofascial release and therapy balls can bring. She holds regular Therapy Ball and Yin Yoga workshops for the general public to teach students techniques that they can easily do at home. She also loves the vigorous practice of Ashtanga yoga, a practice she has been dedicated to for over 13 years.
Deanne is also a pharmacy owner and manager, a mother of one young boy (and another on the way!) as well as many well loved family pets.
