Desirae's journey with yoga in 1997 due to sports injuries. With a dear friend, in the summer of 2013 she opened Hidden Dragon Yoga. Since opening Hidden Dragon she has seen what yoga is truly all about. The community, growth, compassion and love in a studio's space has much more to do with the building. It is the people and fur babies within the walls. #LoveTheJourney
