Deborah’s love for the natural world and holistic health began with making “kitchen ingredient” facials at the age
of 15. She became a Yoga Teacher in the early 1980s when she realized her practice was helping her overcome
struggles with anxiety, low self-esteem, digestive issues and sleep problems. She was introduced to Ayurveda
and since then has dedicated her life to the studies and practices of India’s healing systems. She remains
committed to sharing what she has learned along the way and helping others realize their beauty within so they
can feel the joy and ease of their birthright.
She is a graduate of the Kripalu School of Ayurveda and a Certified Ayurvedic Consultant, a Certified Ayurvedic
Yoga Specialist and a RYT500 Yoga Teacher. She has been conducting classes and workshops and has
consulted on an individual basis for more than 30 years. She appeared in the April 2000 issue of National
Geographic and was chosen to be profiled in the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health Spring 2010 catalog.
Deborah is the owner and founder of the Ayurveda Yoga Center located in Liberty, Maine. She lives in a beautiful
place surrounded by nature with children and grandchildren living nearby. She loves spending time with family,
friends, and her horse, Beau, as well as gardening, dancing, hiking, her work, and all things horses.
