For Deb, things happen for a reason. After a long three-month recovery from major surgery, she returned to a high stress job and lasted one day. She realised working long hours wasn’t what was important to her. Then she found Bikram. Challenging is one way she would describe it. Determination took over and she returned the following day. That turned into attending classes at least 4 times a week. The changes physically were amazing and all of a sudden she had so much more patience at home, on the road, and at work.
October 2011 Deb joined the Yoga Tree family as a receptionist at the Joondalup studio. This inspired her to take a leap of faith and attend a teacher training in 2012 in LA. Teacher Training was one of the most fulfilling and life-changing things she has ever done. For Deb, teaching feels like her place in the world.
Hot Yoga (also known as Bikram) is a series of 26 postures that has been designed to systematically work every part of the body. It stimulates the organs, glands and nerves, moving fresh oxygenated blood to 100% of the body, restoring all systems to a healthy working order. It is a complete, holistic workout doing more for your body than you ever imagined possible! The studio room is heated to 39C allowing the muscles to warm for deeper stretching, it thins the blood to clear the circulatory system, allows the body to eliminate toxins, increases heart rate for a better cardiovascular workout, and improves strength. The meditative practice of stillness will calm and centre you, bringing together body and mind.
