Debby’s journey into yoga started 5 years back, when she took her first class and had no clue what she was in for. Her first experience was actually scary, as she realised how rigid her body was, and was surprised that she hadn’t paid any attention to her body, despite the fact that she was fairly active in sports as a child, primarily in Badminton and Volleyball. Later, she worked in various fields including, content writing, customer services and as an executive assistant. “Yoga helped me change my lifestyle and also helped me stay healthy and mentally sane, which is why I decided to learn Yoga. I soon realised I had an inclination towards teaching”. She started teaching in 2012, after completing a Yoga Instructor Course (YIC) from SVYASA and 200hr Teacher Training Course from the Sivananda Ashram. She also volunteered at the Sivananda Ashram and served in a variety of roles including Karma yoga supervisor, reception and boutique assistance. Also served as personal assistant to the director. Her favourite style is Hata Yoga, and they key focus in her classes is the awareness of breath. Debby has been able to control her sinusitis and migraine problem after practicing Yoga and certain Kriyas.
“Yoga is a journey within and out. I believe it’s a long process of practicing and maintaining the practice and being open to learning new ideas, new styles and to keep trying and never give up because when you keep trying eventually you get there and that is a very beautiful feeling.”
