Foundational Teacher Training
What former graduates are saying:
Debbie is a fantastic instructor. She demonstrates how to be an outstanding yoga teacher and gives you guidance with compassion and understanding. She encourages you to go and find your style of Hatha Yoga. I always trust her opinion and still contact her for suggestions. Since April 2013 I have started my own yoga business, teaching 2-3 evenings a week, in the small town of Ticonderoga, NY. People started coming to my classes to “try” yoga, many who had never practiced before. I get a lot of thanks for bringing yoga to them, and I feel like I make a difference in people’s lives. It is the most rewarding experience to give back! I also have been hired at a few spa locations to teach yoga. Opportunities present themselves in amazing ways!
After graduation, I found Debbie to remain available and open to the developing styles of the new teachers, offering her support and opportunities to teach at True North Yoga. She also offers plenty of inspiration while getting a practice started. Debbie fosters a non-competitive, safe haven with vital instruction in how to teach who is in front of you with certainty and readiness to offer modifications to those with limitations while simultaneously challenging the advanced. She welcomes those who have limitations into the program, knowing that they will progress forward carrying a special understanding and compassion for helping those who suffer to improve their quality of life. Love and peace.
The True North Advanced Yoga Studies program was perfect for me in so many ways! It allowed me to pursue my passion for yoga on a whole new level without requiring me to take a significant chunk of time off from my daily life. And the pacing of the program allowed me to really absorb and integrate what I was learning into my daily life, making for a very rich experience, indeed. Debbie is one of those teachers who really “gets it” and knows how to bring out the best in her students!
The teacher training with Debbie offered me a safe and nurturing space in which to explore myself. Debbie offers a beautiful way of holding space for each and every person to develop in their unique way, honoring differences and honoring the needs of each. I recommend this to anyone looking for an experience of exploring with others into your self through the practice of yoga.
The course will include:
I hope you’ll join me for this first step on a lifelong exploration of the practice and philosophy of yoga. Any questions? Contact me.
