Deb is a yoga instructor and Psychology professor. She began practicing yoga nearly 20 years ago to bring balance to a stressful lifestyle and her Type A personality. Though it was not love at first sight – she was accustomed to handling stress by moving faster, not slower – she soon experienced first-hand how simple movement and breath can shift and transform nearly every experience.
She received her 200-hour yoga teacher certification and began teaching yoga to veterans in 2011. She also completed several advanced trainings, including the Veterans Yoga Project, the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program; Mindfulness and Yoga for Transforming Trauma; and Yoga for 12-Step Recovery. Deb’s classes are breath-centered and suitable for all fitness levels and ages. She uses kindness, persistence, along with hefty doses of compassion and bad jokes, to create a space for practitioners to tap into their own strength and resiliency.
