Deanna Cahill
E-RYT 200  - Yoga Alliance Expert Level Teacher

In 2018, Deanna Cahill developed a specialized Yoga approach called The Gentle Practice, tailored to the physical, mental and emotional needs of Medical Doctors, Researchers, Professors, Med Students and Healthcare Administrators at The University Of Texas Medical Branch.

 

The Practice initially started as in-studio classes prior to the Covid-19 Pandemic, and quickly transformed into a virtual “Zoom” Yoga and Fitness program. The change to virtual classes not only allowed for safe, Covid compliant environment, but also increased attendance for busy Professionals by providing easy access while working from their offices or homes.

An added benefit arising out of the Zoom practice exclusively for Healthcare Professionals is that it allowed a “Safe Space” for in-group talk therapy for those experiencing increased stress and isolation on the front lines during the pandemic.

Due to a greater demand and thanks to the accessibility through virtual technology,

Deanna is expanding The Gentle Practice to offer classes for Healthcare Professionals in any location.
