Deanna is from Bay Shore, NY and has been a licensed chiropractor for over 25 years. Throughout her career, she has practiced in St. Louis, Phoenix and San Diego. She thoroughly understands human bio-metrics and the importance of alignment and balance. At a young age she became deeply passionate about physical fitness and wanted to learn more about Pilates. Where she lived on Long Island, Pilates studios were few and far between, and it wasn’t until a move to San Diego that she discovered numerous Pilates studios. She immersed herself in the practice and knew right away that she wanted to semi-retire as a chiropractor and become a Pilates instructor.
One of Deanna's favorite quotes from Joseph Pilates' book, "Return to Life Through Contrology," reads: "Contrology develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit." Deanna loves talking with clients after class and seeing that they feel challenged and accomplished. Her connection with clients is one of her favorite parts of being a Pilates instructor. In her free time, Deanna loves spending time with family and friends, doing Pilates, exploring astronomy, and wine tasting.
