          --Jill C. 2009

“ I’ve had the privilege of studying with Debby for over five years.  When one-on-one, her instruction informs my practice with precision and nuance.  In class settings, Debby has the unique ability to teach to a wide range of abilities--all at the same time--in effect combining the benefits of individual instruction with the energy of group learning.

While ever mindful of pushing too hard, Debby always motivates me to extend my practice to new limits.  Ashtanga and vinyasa with Debby has expanded my yoga experience immeasurably.  I am grateful for her patient guidance and look forward to many more hours of learning and fun!”  Rob.

"When my family and I moved to Short Hills from Tribeca, the thing I missed the most was Shri Yoga, NYC's #1 yoga studio!  After a year of driving to Montclair, Hoboken and back to Tribeca to get in a "good" yoga class, I was determined to find "good" yoga in my neighborhood.  So after hitting every studio and gym in Livingston, South Orange, West Orange and Short Hills, I finally found Debby!  My search was over-- "great" yoga in my neighborhood! Debby was my first stop after my second child was born and within weeks my mind, body and soul was under positive transformation.  Debby is more than a yoga teacher.  She embodies the spirit, the values and the truth that people come to practice yoga for.  Through her positive energy and contagious optimism she makes you forget the word "can't" and shows you that anything is possible.  My arms are proof!  I am proud to say that i have "Body by Debby"....no gym, no running, no kick boxing, no personal training...just Debby.  that's all ya need.  You get therapy and a work out.  its a 2fer! "  Melody F. MyTai Clothing Founder

“Debby, I like that you reach into the outer limits of many poses, as you teach us to learn, to tweak and improve each pose.  I also enjoy that you change the tone and feel of every class.  It keeps yoga interesting as I continue to grow and expand my physical practice as well as all the internal goodies that I tap into both on and off my mat.  Until now, I never appreciated how powerful breath and movement are and how important that connection is in everyday life.  Personal growth and yoga addiction can only be attributed to a wonderful and inspiring instructor...which you certainly are.  Thank you for sharing your amazing knowledge and enthusiasm for yoga with us lucky students!” --Debbie T.

Debby--”I’ve taken a lot of yoga classes since my first one in 1975 and have had lots of different instructors.  But practicing yoga with you while you were in Colorado reinvigorated my interest.  Your dynamic spirit, enthusiasm for and knowledge of yoga is contagious.  You inspired me, challenged me, encouraged me and adjusted me in all the right places.  I have been yoga-ing regularly ever since you left.”  Love, Katherine O.  Colorado 2009
