Dee Gard, E-RYT® 200 is a 2014 graduate of the Wilmington Yoga Center 220 hour Kunga Teacher Training Program, and is currently pursuing her 500-hour credential with Jason Crandell. She originally began her yoga practice in 2007 to supplement her intense marathon training. Yoga enhanced her running performance to such a degree and also, her well-being that she soon began practicing yoga several times a week. In recent years, her practice has flip-flopped. Dee now runs (bikes and skis) to support her strong vinyasa flow practice, which is most influenced by teachers, Jason Crandell and Kathryn Budig, and her newfound interest in Ashtanga.
She is known for her strong verbal cuing, paying close attention to the subtleties of postures, and guides her students to move mindfully from an intelligent place using sound body alignment and movement principles. Dee believes magic happens in the practicing of yoga, and is truly excited to share the magic with her students.
