"DeePaola is a wonderful yoga teacher, I highly recommend her! She gives a class that's solid in alignment, challenging and best of all fun! Her good energy is contagious and her creative sequencing has me leaving her class feeling stronger and more alive than when I walked in. She's the real deal!"

"DeePaola is a natural teacher and very skilled at working with children. She came to our school and gave 22 kindergarteners an opportunity to learn poses in a fun and non-competitive atmosphere. She was sweet with the girls and did an incredible job managing their energy. The class was entertaining and engaging with just the right amount of zen."
