Jori Deegan, Owner

On and off the mat, Jori tries to exemplify a life based on the key yoga principles. These principles are shared with both her students and family, as she has 3 beautiful girls/yogis of her own (ages 10, 8 & 11 months)! 


Jori has been teaching yoga to adults and children for 8 years. Jori has a love for teaching and a passion that shines each and every time she enters the studio. 


Yoga provides an outlet for Jori and her hope is that her students will embrace this same feeling as well as accept their practice wherever they may be on their own yoga journey.

Chrissy Carlson

As a child, Chrissy had the privilege of practicing headstands alongside her young-at-heart grandma who would amaze all with her inverted stillness and strength into her 80's. The incredible fusion of peace, focus, strength and energy that Chrissy gained from these and other yoga-like movements as a young girl resonate now in a more profound way.


Since her teenaged years, she has continued a regular yoga practice because of the countless benefits that yoga brings, especially the sense of positivity, tranquility, self-awareness and acceptance.


Several years ago Chrissy more formally enhanced her love of yoga by receiving her 200-hour yoga teacher training certification, and thoroughly enjoys guiding adults and children to find their own flow and love of self in an encouraging and playful environment. She is honored to share the tremendous benefits and fun of yoga with her own children and those in the Little Lotus environment.

Debbie MacKenzie

I have lived in Elmhurst for almost 30 years. My husband and I raised our 3 children here and made Elmhurst our home. With my children grown and pursuing their careers in other states, I find myself with more time than I expected. Parker and I (my daughters dog) are on our own as I’m working on a new chapter of my life but one constant is my love of yoga and sharing that love with as many children as I can!


Yoga has been a grounding force in my life and has helped me though many difficult times, whether it be physical, emotional or spiritual. Yoga is always there when I need it.


I hope to give children the tools to grow and build confidence to achieve anything in life by coming to their mat and allowing themselves to love who they are and to grow!


I thank you and I look forward to instilling positive habits your children will take with them throughout their life.
