Shining in ballet from the age of three, Desirae took a lead role in the Nutcracker by the age of six with the Fort Worth City Ballet Company. Through high school and college, she continued a path of competitive sports mixed with the arts. After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin, she followed a creative marketing path and in 1993 opened her own graphic design studio called American Pie Design, Inc. Desirae discovered that yoga provided a counter to the stress of the corporate world. Traveling the country for major corporations, she experienced many yoga styles, but found Baptiste Power Vinyasa and Anusara Yoga provided a spiritual aspect, the missing puzzle piece to her life. In 2006, she opened Breath and Body Yoga in Austin, Texas. She established the leading 200 and 500-hour teacher training school in Austin plus produces online classes and yoga videos. The University of Texas's Women's Volleyball, Softball, Golf and the Men's Baseball teams hire her to bring strength, flexibility, breath and alignment to their collegiate sports. At present teaches, tours and trains, bringing a new dynamic to the practice where vinyasa flow meets alignment.
