"I find Deborah to be an excellent instructor - offering challenges yet encouraging each of us to work at our own level...I'm learning to appreciate my body - to focus inward."   

Cookie Russell

Yoga helps us to develop awareness of the connection between mind, body, and spirit, and to use this connection to heal ourselves. Deborah emphasizes breath, focus, visualization, & affirmation to facilitate a meditative healing experience. 

Yoga with Deborah JOYa

Preparing for Yoga

* Eat lighter foods at least 1 hour before class

* Drink water - before (can prevent cramping), and after (movement and stretching untangles our fibers so water can flow between them and we need to replenish with more water so it stays there as well as flushes out deposits that were released

* Be considerate of others - Come fragrance free!

* Try to avoid entering or exiting the class during more focused times like the beginning or balancing or relaxation (you can enter/leave an online class anytime!)

* Consider bringing an eye pillow or small cloth to cover your eyes, a blanket to sit on, use under knees, and/or keep warm during relaxation. Blocks, bolsters, straps, wrist protection, and other props are also nice to have.
