Desiree Backbend


"My day job as a flight attendant makes it possible for me to find Desiree just about anywhere in the world. I recall the first time we met. My flight from NYC to Amsterdam was extremely delayed due to weather and I didn’t think I would make it on time. I walked in late, feeling rushed and exhausted, trying not to be disruptive, and was happily surprised with the warm welcome I received from Desiree. She was not even slightly annoyed. I remember her saying something like this “Wow! That is determination. I will never forget you!

Having had the good fortune of visiting her often over the past ten years, I have seen her teachings and her practice evolve.
Now 60 years old and a grandmother of two, she continues to keep her body and her outlook on life strong and vital. She continues traveling and teaching and hopes to inspire others of any age who might be feeling a little stuck or discouraged, to continue to seek healing and transformation, To never give up.
She has the ability to see, encourage and inspire us to rise to our potential rather than fixate on our limitations.

To describe Desiree in one word, I would choose the word “Bright”. Her energy exudes light and love and her passion and enthusiasm for yoga is contagious."
