Desi Springer

Never a traditional athlete, Desi Springer credits yoga with teaching her to appreciate the connection between her mind and body—then eventually connecting her to a most vibrant and heartfelt community. First taught by her sister Micah, Desi went on to do teacher trainings with Bikram Choudry, Senior Anusara® Instructor Jamie Allison and at Yoga Works. She has currently logged 600 hours of Anusara® study and is working toward her 700-hour certification. Desi’s classes are a delightful slow-burn challenge, with a deep focus on how proper alignment can help us expand our edges. “It is my intention to encourage students to expand beyond limited beliefs and to practice what inspires and heals all—self-love, gratitude and serving the highest good.”

Vital Roots Description:

Vital Yoga’s Signature Class is a Hatha based series designed to address the body’s misalignment tendencies. The class provides alignment education, hip opening, spine strengthening and steadfast balancing poses, and quiet for mediation and relaxation. Practiced in a heated room, the series facilitates the body’s natural detoxification process. Suitable for beginning and advanced practitioners alike. Vital Roots is both therapeutic and cardiovascular, appealing to cross-training athletes, as well as people wanting an antidote to increasing sedentary lifestyles. Vital Roots was created by Desi and her sister Micah.
