Deb's interest in yoga started when her personal trainer told her that all the years of hard workouts, spin classes, weightlifting, and miles of walking and jogging had taken a toll on her physical body and, without yoga, she was highly prone to injury. The endless workouts also left her mind and spirit overworked. She faced a hard truth, she could spin and dance for hours, but she couldn’t bend over to tie her own shoes.
Just a few years ago, she began her own yoga path by participating in a gentle restorative class. As her practice unfolded and her interest and ability grew, she decided to become yoga certified. After being retired for years from an Executive Director role for older adult living communities, teaching yoga was the last thing on her mind. Yet, to complete her certification, she was required to practice teaching. It was in that instructor role that she found her passion for Yin Yoga; it was the perfect fit for her needs, and for many of her contemporaries. She continues to refine and develop her purpose in educating others how to balance yin yoga with the traditional yang poses to achieve a deeper expression of a yoga practice.
Deb is Chair of the Naples Women's Club Women's Wellness Committee and active with Avalon Elementary School for developing the Peace Place Zones. She now teaches in the Naples area and finds joy and purpose in drawing others together in community. Together, we find true meaning to an individual’s yoga level by uniting breath, mind and body.
