I love the hot yoga classes. I have had classes with Dee Ann and Amber, and they were both awesome. Dee Ann is especially helpful with notes on form. I also like that you can rent mats for only a dollar, which I learned when I lost my regular yoga mat and was about to try to do a class with an old pilates mat I found buried in my trunk. Mat rental saved me!
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.
