I invite you to become part of my journey...
Deborah the traveling monk
In 2003 I traveled from Australia to expand my knowledge and experience in yoga and meditation. I participated in a 6-month, eyes closed, meditation retreat, known as Mastery of the Self with The Ishaya Monks.
After completing the intensive program, I stayed on for a further 2-months and completed my meditation teacher training in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
For the next 6 years I traveled around the world, as a monk, sharing in, and leading and sharing meditation/yoga weekend classes, retreats and workshops.
Being an entrepreneur
Yoga, meditation and travel are great but people have to make a living, right? (That's what I thought anyway.)
So, in 2009, I came back to Canada and became a permanent resident and started a small business: Nail artistry. I set up a small shop and did that full time for ten years.
My body sends a message
If you are here because your body has given you a "wake up call", I totally understand.
Early in 2019, I woke up one morning and could not pick anything up with my right hand. It had seized up and was very painful.
After numerous specialist appointments, they had found that my ulna nerve (in my arm) was damaged. Why? It was a severe, repetitive strain injury caused by sitting at my nail station desk and continually working on nails. It is the same kind of injury that people get from working too much on the computer.
The treatment? Yoga...and that was ordered direct from my Doctor!
Deborah the yoga teacher
I completed my 200hr yoga teacher training program with the North American School of Yoga Science (British Columbia, Canada) in July 2019 and became a registered certified yoga instructor. Since then, I have also completed training and certification in Yin Yoga March, 2020. Chair Yoga, October, 2019. Pranayama and Meditation, December 2020. Yoga Nidra, June 2020. Acu-Yoga, March 2021. I have also completed my 300hr yoga teacher training with Wind of Prana (Colorado, USA) in April 2021. Sound Bath 100hr YTT, 2022 at Yandara Yoga Institute, Mexico. I hold a Reiki Master level certification and have been practicing since 2001. My studies continue as becoming a yoga teacher has no ending.
Am I the yoga teacher for you?
I believe in the power of healing the body given the right tools, knowledge and guidance.
Also, I believe in living a life full of joy and gratitude, and free of judgement. I know that yoga and meditation are helping me achieve that.
My own life has given me the best example—my arm has almost completely healed through regular yoga practice, nutrition and meditation. I am able to continue doing things I love to do, while keeping time for an essential: yoga.
Amazing instructor! Deborah has such awareness and a gentle and fluid instruction. I felt so calm and peaceful after a beautiful afternoon class. Thank you

Amazing! Small class size and instructor Deborah was very attentive.
Ensuring that I was properly doing each pose and that I was getting the maximum out of class. The classes are also long enough to really feel the benefits of stretching, relaxing, engaging and letting go.
Deborah's class was totally relaxing. I go to see her every chance I can!
She adapts to everybody’s needs and is very caring! If you want to totally zen come join us .
