Dee Bourtzos

Dee knew that she wanted to help people learn how to move their bodies with their breath, and to show them that they can be strong physically as well as mentally. Anyone can pull themselves up, no matter where they are in life, and yoga has shown her how to take what she has learned on her mat, and use it in everyday life. “To take the world into one’s arms and act towards it in a soul-filled and soul-strengthening manner is a powerful act of wildish spirit.” Clarissa Pinkola Estés
