Deborah has had life-long interest and exploration in wellness. Always enjoying an active life through sports and recreation, she began using yoga to facilitate relief from joint and muscular pain and discomfort. Continued exploration led her to discover that yoga was a unification system for the whole person. Not only useful for improving the physical issues of the body, yoga brought more clarity into every aspect of living including focus, comprehension, diligence, patience, self-esteem, courage, and relationship with others. Having spent over a decade practicing and teaching yoga, she has found that the use of yoga methods facilitate an active life, feeling happy and well and enjoying the diversified world.

Deborah is a graduate of the 200 and 500 hour level of the Samyoga Institute division of Shiva Shakti Synthesis and is a graduate of the Ohio State University with a BS in Psychology.  She has been teaching children and adults for over fifteen years.  She currently teaches classes for the teacher training program at Samyoga Institute and is a lecturer at the  Ohio State University, teaching courses to over 200 students every semester giving them a foundation for practicing yoga safely for life. Deborah specializes in alignment-based yoga practice for children and adults, conditioning and rehabilitation for athletes, meditation techniques, and stress management.
