Deb, her 3 children and her husband moved to Amelia Island from Chicago in July of 2011. She discovered yoga in 1999 with 1 yr old twins at home and another on the way. She was instantly hooked. As a dancer for 20 years, Deb found the asanas in yoga moved her like nothing had since dancing. And as her family can attest, yoga was instrumental in bringing both strength and grounding in the most challenging of times. Deb dove head first into all things yoga; seeking workshops and classes with such master teachers as Seane Corn, Simon Park, Rolf Gates, Dave Romanelli, Alex Austin, Desiree Rumbough, Kathryn Budig , John Friend, Baron Baptiste and Yogi Amrit Desai. She finally realized her dream completing her 500 hour RYT teacher training at Yoga Den in Jacksonville and obtained her Certification in the I AM method of Yoga Nidra Meditation at the Amrit Yoga Insitute in Salt Springs, Florida.
She brings a playful, creative spirit to her vinyasa style practice and is blessed to be able to share her passion as a teacher. Deb also is the first to bring SUP Yoga here to Amelia Island, as an ACA Certified SUP instructor and YA SUP Yoga Instructor.
As a certified Life Coach, it was a natural transition to create The Mindfulness Effect, a transformational coaching company that ushers you into the best life possible. Learn more HERE
