Tell us a little about you:
Hi, I am Twyla Deese and I am one of the owners at the Winery and Brewery at Catawba Farms along with Michael Waltuch and Dennis Baucom.

Foremost and forever, I am a Yoga teacher and offer classes at Catawba Farms and other area studios (check out the schedule here.) Yoga can transform your life - making one, more accomplished at living and I credit the practice for some of the more creative aspects that we are able to share with the community at the Farm.
