De Jur has been a yoga devotee since 2001. She attended Loyola Marymount University’s Yoga Therapy program.
She teaches victim centered trauma, informed yoga to Commercially Sexually Exploited Children with UpRising Yoga. Serving this population sparked an interest that created a deep dive into learning everything she could about trauma, how it affects victims and survivors and how yoga can help with embodiment, resilience building, self-regulation and healing.
She found her niche serving at-risk, under-resourced and highly traumatized communities and populations that show up with a myriad of emotional, physical and psychological damage. Aside from teaching countless mainstream classes, De Jur also teaches therapeutic, accessible yoga to incarcerated and formerly incarcerated adults with Prison Yoga Project and Prison Yoga+Meditation. She offers yoga therapy to populations in recovery, those unhoused, mentally ill seniors, those trying to leave the life of sex trafficking and foster youth.
De Jur is a contributor to the Yoga Service Council’s best practices book series “Best Practices for Yoga in the Criminal Justice System”. She is an Accessible Yoga Ambassador and the featured model in Jivana Heyman’s book, Accessible Yoga, Poses and Practices for Every Body. De Jur co-chaired at the 2019 International Association of Yoga Therapists Conference. She moonlights as a flight attendant.
