All of my Yogic teachings are deeply influenced by Yoga’s sister, Ayurveda. The posture, breathing, and meditative practices will change according to the seasons and weather patterns as well as to what is going on around us and within us. This is in keeping with harmonizing ourselves with Mother Nature. Come to learn about life and living through the lens of Yoga and Ayurveda. Learn about their guiding principles, gain a deeper understanding of yourself, and be nourished on all levels.
A Yoga practice grounds, stabilizes, focuses and supports spiritual, mental, and emotional health. It helps us create the conditions inside so we are better equipped to handle the day to day pressures of life with strength, steadiness, stability, and courage. We have more prana; life energy, on the inside which contributes to a vibrant yet peaceful state. Our minds will be more calm and clear. Essential for radiance. We want to include breath work, yoga postures or some other form of exercise, meditation, chanting, affirmations and close our practice in silence.

Feel the charge!!! Clear the energetic blocks, boost your energy, feel and look more radiant.
I hear words like this all the time: “I don’t know what it is but I just feel different. Nothing else quite does what this does.“
Please come join us and find out for yourself!
Kundalini yoga includes mantras (chants), breathing techniques, postures, mudras (hand positions) and meditation.
All of these components are combined to form a series of “exercises” known as Kriyas.
Although all systems of the body are strengthened, there is a particular emphasis on the subtle body: the chakra system which directly impacts the nervous and glandular systems. Have greater control of emotions, feel uplifted, and happier overall.
“When I carve out the time to be in your yoga class I always come away more grounded, more connected to my body, with fewer aches and pains and feeling like I have given myself a gift. Your style is perfect for me with your peaceful and skilled approach to the postures, your gentle warm-ups and your words of wisdom.” -S. D.
I started Deb’s yoga class three ago after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Her classes and Ayurvedic Practice have been a vital connection to my continued good health. I so appreciate all that I have learned from my experience in working with her.
