She was first introduced to yoga in 1986 and has been a committed yogi ever since. As the lead instructor of both 200 and 500 hour Yoga Alliance approved trainings, she has trained hundreds of yoga teachers, and has a solid foundation in both alignment and vinyasa styles of yoga, as well as her masters degree in Clinical Social Work. Her depth of knowledge in traditional yoga asana and philosophy, combined with her understanding of how the body and mind work, make her classes and trainings a complete experience for the practitioner.
As a student in Debi’s class, expect a physical practice where you will be challenged, educated, and empowered. She masterfully creates a class that incorporates clear powerful instruction, demonstration and physical assists that will land you in your body and breathe, so that you have an embodied experience of your yoga practice. Debi is deeply connected and creates a conversation while she teaches, using what is happening in the room or her life as a metaphor for universal truth and inspiration.
“It is my purpose to raise the consciousness of the planet. To offer tools that give access to the unlimited possibility of each individual to manifest their deepest desires, and allow them to be their Greatest Self.”
Debi is committed to having a positive impact on the community. She supports many non-profit organizations both locally and globally. Her major influencers have been Baron Baptiste and Wayne Dyer, and she is inspired by life, seeing people live fearlessly in full natural self expression.
