Debra is a 200 hour Certified Yoga Teacher, Personal Trainer and Neurokinetic Therapist. She began her journey with yoga after the death of her toddler daughter, MargaretAnn, in 1998 as a means of self-care to learn to listen and just be. She entered teacher training in 2012 so she could pass on the gifts of yoga to the grieving students she worked with in the school system.
She is a self-described "mind-body-breath-brain movement geek" and is fascinated by how all these elements are interconnected. Debra was an avid long-distance runner and cyclist (translates to being quite inflexible) and is testimony that anyone can do yoga. Debra educates and empowers her students to become the "expert" of their own body, mind and Spirit. By bringing awareness into our body and breath we allow ourselves the gift of slowing down and the quieting of our mind- it is here where the real practice and transformational power of Yoga is realized.
In addition to traditional Yoga, Debra teaches (SUP) Stand Up Paddle board Yoga and Strength 4 Life- a Trainer-Led Group strength training class using dumbbells and body weight.
