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.
