GOGA Instructor

Deb believes yoga is for every BODY, no matter the shape, size, flexibility or fitness level. She wants to create a joyful, mindful space for her students to grow, discover and reconnect with breath, body, and mind. 

Yoga and Deb did not have a love-at-first-sight relationship. She began yoga many years ago, as a companion to fitness classes. But after a serious back injury took her out of commission, yoga became recovery, a pathway to strength, flexibility and health maintenance. 

Teaching yoga was not on her radar for years, but after experiencing the myriad benefits, she enjoys sharing the empowerment, peace and restoration experience with her students. Deb completed her Yoga Teacher Training with Kim Saunders at Lift Yoga Studio. 

Deb spent the bulk of her career as a journalist covering international news events from the Gulf War(s),  political upheavals, natural disasters, and terrorist attacks. She currently freelances for a creative agency making videos mostly to support her yoga habit.  She is passionate about child advocacy serving as a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) for abused and neglected children in Forsyth County and on the executive board for the non-profit group Inspiritus. 

When she is not doing yoga, you can find her buying cleaning products she has no intention of using and belting show tunes (badly).
