Healing Yoga: Yoga for Real People with Real Problems is designed to encourage participation without stigmatizing viewers. Deborah provides multiple movement options in a manner that doesn’t focus on age or fitness level but instead on strength, flexibility and endurance.
Movement options are presented using graceful terminology that encourages users to know their own bodies and find the right fit for them. For example, a movement option regarding a leg stretch would encourage participants to assess their flexibility and to reach as far as comfortable with several examples if you’re feeling a little flexible or very flexible.

“For years I thrived in the high pressure business world but, the workaholic life finally caught up with me. I was 35, very overnight, in chronic pain with severe mobility issues, terrible diet, no exercise. My health was a complete wreck. Then, I went to a gentle yoga class and felt truly relaxed. Stress just melted away. I went from a size 18 to a size 8. I stopped getting sick. Pain disappeared. I learned to open my heart and I felt happy for the first time in years. So, I said goodbye to the business world and started teaching. Yoga doesn’t have to be strenuous. The simplest movements can trigger major release of chronic symptoms, no matter your age.”
