Deb Pizzimenti has been a yogi for several years and recently completed her 200 hour teacher training under the direction of Margarida Tree. For her, yoga represents the union of breath and movement, listening to the inner voice radiating out from heart’s center. After several years of running and completing marathons, half marathons and other road races, Deb dialed back the running to focus on a more holistic approach to fitness. “Yoga allows for my body to become flexible, strong and purposeful, while the breath guides me through my practice. For so long, I took advantage of those breaths that they would always there. It wasn’t until I ran the first marathon that I understood fully how valuable and supportive it can be. When my friend Tommy who was a physically fit, beefy SWAT cop struggled to sit up and breathe on his own due to a debilitating and fatal disease, I had completely wrapped myself around its importance and vitality. The Ashtanga style of yoga that I practice is the form of yoga given to us as a gift from our teachers before us. In this life, realizing my gifts and being able to share those with others who wish to accept them is the most rewarding blessing of all.”
Contact Deb at [email protected]. She would love to hear from you and to have you in a class to share yoga with you!
