Deanne Caputo E-RYT500 Prana Vinyasa, turned to yoga for deep healing after a debilitating back injury in 2001. She became passionate to help spread the word about this nutrimental practice and began teaching in 2004.
She’s no stranger to the taxing effects of the stress-response, because prior to her work as a yoga teacher, she spent many years in the fast paced entertainment industry directing and producing live television. Perhaps this is how she is able to turn skeptics and naysayers into self-loving yogis! Students have said that her teaching style is the perfect combination of gentleness, spirituality, and motivation.
Deanne has been on the faculty of several teacher trainings, including the lead instructor and co-creator of Brandywine Yoga’s 200 HR YTT. She teaches Ayurveda for Create Karma’s Leadership Training Program, and is on the board of Ray of Hope International Foundation – A global charity focused on raising funds for underprivileged children and families in the USA and India. In 2015 she completed a Masters Certification in Digestion and Nutrition, and holds dual consultant certifications in Ayurvedic Lifestyle and Food & Nutrition.
She has been fortunate enough to be inspired by numerous talented contemporary teachers and peers, but gives great pranams to Shiva Rea, Maria Garre, and John Immel for being her greatest influences and for their generous sharing of knowledge and wisdom.
You can find Deanne at Brandywine Yoga in West Chester, PA.
