I dropped in to the restorative class taught by Beth. Enjoyed the friendly, relaxed, fun, lighthearted & encouraging atmosphere she created. I learned new poses and loved her focus on the breath ~ bringing us back to the breath and teaching a technique to stay with it. She has a very clear communication style and great cues. The studio is perfectly clean and is an overall well kept, beautiful facility. The only improvement would be to extend the restorative class to 75 minutes instead of 60 minutes. Much love to you all at YogaQUEST!
Debra is a full-time yoga teacher and holds a ERYT200 certification in iyengar yoga, which focuses on alignment, strength in holding the poses, and breath.
Besides focusing on core strength in her classes, Debra also leads poses that involve dynamic stretching to increase circulation and healing, and resistance stretching to increase strength and improve flexibility—a return to her background in ballet.
“I don’t just lead,” she says. “I tell people what’s happening physically within their bodies because I love the science behind yoga. How breath, twists, and turns massage and bring health to the internal organs. It’s more than just learning the poses. The ‘why’ gives you incentive to do it.”
Debra teaches heated vinyasa flow, a blend of vinyasa and iyengar poses, and not-heated core strength and stretch classes.
