Our Instructors


While Jenn Swaine has been exploring her yoga practice on-and-off for about five years, she fell in love with the beauty of caring for your body and soul through asana and meditation summer 2017 in a cow field at an off-grid camp in the middle of Kentucky. There she discovered the power of both movement and stillness to help herself heal during a time of loss and grief. Jenn came home knowing that she needed to create a space for others to have their own experience and immediately enrolled in Red Lila School of Yoga in Baltimore, Maryland. Studying under Lindsay Lusignea and Kate Manchester, she developed the tools to create space for others while also challenging them to strengthen their mind-body connection.

Jenn enjoys incorporating the use of intuitive movement into her classes with space for each student to explore their own personal practice while still finding the structure of a traditional flow.

Deborah Pulzone has been practicing yoga for 30 years and teaching for 15 years. Her inquiry began with the Iyengar style where she studied at Unity Woods Yoga in Washington, D.C. This style of yoga is based on learning proper alignment of the body allowing students to move more deeply into the poses with less threat of injury. As her yoga practiced deepened so did her meditation. Through this modality she discovered the limitless benefits of moving within ourselves; ranging from the peacefulness of less stress to the ability to understand ourselves on a more intimate level, allowing for personal growth. In her desire to combine the benefits of both, her momentum lead her to the Anusara style of hatha yoga. This style continues the principles of alignment but also adds a heart centered approach, giving focus to mindfulness and self-nourishment. Her 200-hour teacher training was done at Willow Street Yoga in Silver Spring, MD. Deborah’s current practice is based on the fruition of all her studies and contains the fluidity of newly emerging discoveries, both personal and professional.

Join Deborah on Thursdays at 8AM for Level 2 Yoga
