WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

"DEBORA'S CLASSES ARE LIKE A JOURNEY THROUGH YOUR WHOLE BODY. I AM WAY MORE FLEXIBLE AND I DON'T NEED ANY PAIN RELIEF MEDICATION FOR MY BACK ANYMORE! I AM LESS STRESSED AND MORE RELAXED.  I LOVE HER CLASSES AND I AM GRATEFUL HOW SHE CHANGED MY LIFE. "

~ NANA

Dylan Holloway, Electrician 

I just love Debora's classes. I love her passion for yoga, it's what connects me to her. Her classes are really intuitive & flowing. It's quite a unique style I really enjoy. I'm getting more aware of my body & my mind. I love her gentle & slow  adjustments. It helps me in all areas of my life, I love yoga!

Lauren Hill,
Freedom Coach

Wow! Debora is such a nurturing & loving human being. She gives her whole heart to exactly what she is doing and makes you feel so taken care of. Her yoga classes help me focus, her acroyoga classes allows my inner child to come out and play & her massages are DIVINE. Debora has helped me know, heal & love my body. I have never felt so strong & aware of my temple. THANK YOU DEBORA! 

Debora teaches with such a diversity of postures and at the end of her class my whole body feels like it’s had great attention. To me, her classes are extremely wholistic. Gentle but powerful! My body is stronger, my posture is more upright and I walk with more awareness of my body now. I actually LOVE my body!
