Testimonials


“I am a firm believer in the idea that the Lord provides us with just the right people at the exact time when we really need them.  If the story be told it might seem as though Debby randomly crossed my path; but I believe the meeting was much more providential.  I needed a teacher and Debby spoke truth into my life.  What a blessing that has been! 

Her keen mind and loving spirit work together brilliantly to heal and motivate her clients.  She recognizes the whole person and weaves together what she knows to resonate with a person on all levels – physical, mental, spiritual and emotional.  One day she will assist during a private yoga lesson so that you get a true sense of what the posture will be once you master it – and she leaves no doubt that you will master it.  Another day she will teach you to breathe, to be still, and to get in touch with your body – and you’ll learn just how much that body has to tell you. 

When she senses you are full of energy, she will challenge you to push to your real edge (not the one you think is there); but then, when you are drained from the excesses of the world, she will provide comfort and relaxation either through her massage techniques or by guiding you through the most delicious restorative yoga practice you’ve ever experienced.  Debby started out as my teacher, now, 1-1/2 years later, while I still have much to learn, she has become a trusted friend.  Evan S., 57”

“I first met Debby about 3 or 4 years ago when she was teaching Advanced Yoga classes at the YMCA. However, it was not until mid-2011 or so that I learned she also provided table massages and Thai yoga massage. I have been using Debby for body work ever since and consider it my good fortune that she lives reasonably close by. Debby is a true expert with respect to the body and its mechanics, including studying the meridians and how they impact health. She is consistently dependable and thorough, and after a few months with her, you feel years younger.

"I've been a yoga student of Debby's for five + years, and have had several sessions of her Thai massage. During this time, my lower back problems have gradually disappeared, through her teaching of mindful form and building strength, and it's made a huge difference in my practice and everything else I do. She's constantly studying for new certifications and dedicated to giving her students and clients her absolute best. I feel privileged to be her student." - Judy Stead, Published Illustrator & Artist
