Thank you to our incredible volunteer yoga teachers:
Debra, Northern Virginia Juvenile Detention Center, Mondays 6:30pm.
Debra began her yoga journey in 2007 attending a variety of Hatha Yoga classes in the Northern Virginia area. She furthered her study of yoga earning a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT200) designation in 2012 and continues to be a student of the 8 limbs of yoga with a daily practice. Debra volunteers with the Shakti Youth Project sharing the yoga experience with at-risk youth in the belief that yoga can offer a place of calmness and quiet. She considers herself as much a student of these youth as she is a Yoga teacher to them. Her most gratifying experience is observing the faces of these youth relax into the rhythm and focus of pranayama (breath) practice.
