Testimonials for Debbie Philp
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.
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 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.
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.
My original goals for taking Debbie’s 6 month Health Coaching Program was to lose weight and learn how to live a healthy life style. What I got was far more. Although still working on these goals I have made many positive changes with the gentle encouragement of Debbie. Losing weight is not only about food choices, but also attitude and outlook. Debbie helped me focus on the positive by providing simple tools.
Look deep, deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
