From the Windy City via Miami and South America to San Antonio/Hill Country, Deborah Charnes (C-IAYT, E-RYT 200/RYT 500) has been a yoga, meditation and pranayama (deep breathing) enthusiast everywhere she has lived. She brings to her students a broad variety of learnings -- in English and Spanish.
One of the few certified Yoga Therapists in San Antonio/Hill Country, Deborah is passionate about helping people feel better, physically and emotionally. While she can help people with many different areas of dis-ease, she has additional experience and research focusing on yoga for blood sugar management and digestive issues.
She guides her yoga students (from children to near-centenarians) in corporate, group and private class settings, in English or Spanish, in Texas, Mexico and Central America. For her yoga therapy clients, she conducts a 90-minute intake which includes postural evaluation and muscle testing. Then, she creates a customized action plan and lifestyle tips.
Additionally, she offers signature therapeutic workshops at The Namaste Getaway In Wimberley, Texas to manage weight, blood sugar, bone health, stress, and digestive disorders.
Deborah's approach is broad, and includes the wisdom of East and West. She completed an Ayurvedic studies program at Sivananda in Southern India where she studied Ayurveda and practiced the eight branches of yoga, daily. She completed her teacher training at the Yandara Institute in Mexico, and Yoga Therapy with The Wisdom Method. She has a great appreciation for Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Exercise, and incorporates those learnings into her sessions, too.
