COLLABORATIONS | EVENTS | NUTRITIONHi, My name is Desireeh, or "Des"! I'm an American living in Sydney, studying Pastoral Leadership at Hillsong College.
Before moving to Sydney, I was living in New York City and graduated from NYU with a Bachelor's in Science with a focus in Nutrition and Public Health. I was attended Hillsong NYC where I came to know Christ and began serving at church and Colour Conference.
I also worked at and practised yoga at a local yoga studio. However, after a while I felt convicted to pause my yoga practice because it was not rooted in Christ, even though I still had a desire to do it. I then had a dream to create a space where Christians could practice yoga in a Christ centred way. I also had a desire to teach people how to take care of themselves nutritionally and spiritually.
Right before moving to Sydney I had discovered about Grace x Strength and realised it was an answered prayer and dream because they were doing exactly what I wanted to do. Now, I am so excited to be part of the Grace x Strength team and live out my passion of seeing Christian Yoga being moved forward. Being part of this community is an answered prayer for me because I have the opportunity to meet like-minded people who take care of themselves spiritually and physically and witness people coming to know Christ and grow in their relationship with Jesus.
