After Debby found Ashtanga yoga, she was immediately hooked. Both the dynamic and meditative aspect appealed to her. After practicing for some years, she realised Ashtanga works on an even deeper level. The ashtanga practice gives her more stability, flexibility and peace of mind, on and off the mat.
In her own practice and in her classes she focuses on the breath and body awareness. She believes a softer approach lasts longer. After all, we get only one body per lifetime, so we should be kind to it. With her Thai Massage background you can expect hands-on adjustments and maybe even a little massage treatment in Savasana ;-).
Debby completed the Ashtanga based Teacher Training with Brian Cooper at Yoga Moves in 2015. She is a direct student of R. Sharath Jois in Mysore, India. When possible she practices with international teachers like Luke Jordan and Gibran Gonzalez. But it’s thanks to Marilou and Jurre that the love for Ashtanga got ignited. Besides teaching yoga, she also gives Thai Massage in the tradition of her teacher Pichest Boonthumme.
