Aware of the benefits since her early twenties, Elizabeth turned to Yoga consistently in 2005 for life balance in the face of business ownership and motherhood. In 2007 she was drawn to begin teacher training so that she could share with others. She completed her certification and began teaching in 2008.
Debbi K. Levy is a native Texan who grew up doing gymnastics . As a busy mother of three children, she found it difficult to feel those wonderful feelings one receives through deep body movement, and she missed the confidence you gain meeting new physical challenges the way she had experienced as a teenager. Although walking many miles for exercise was invigorating, it wasn't until she discovered Yoga that her physical self and mental self came together in a place of contentment.
Debbie has been teaching yoga since 2007 and has been in the health and wellness field since 1999. She received her RYT-200 and RYT-500 training through Blue Anjou’s Breathe into Awareness teacher training program. Known for her down to earth personality, her classes are meditative in structure without losing the physical aspect. She firmly believes meditation is the foundation of a holistic yoga practice. She is inspired by the rituals and routines of Ayurveda, yoga’s sister science, as well as its emphasis on vegetarian food.

Through the years, I’ve accumulated thousands of hours of hands-on experience and an extensive background in Yoga Asana, Yoga Therapy, Meditation, Ayurveda, Anatomy and Physiology, Nutrition, Pilates, and Exercise Science.

I’ve been interested in health & fitness for most of my life and enjoyed running, playing tennis and attending the occasional yoga class. After completing my first (and last) marathon in November 2005, I decided to run less and devote more energy towards yoga, increasing my practice to 4-5 times per week. After several months of practice, I noticed my muscles became leaner, longer, and stronger and my mind became calmer and more focused. What began as a way of staying healthy and fit soon transformed into devotion and a way of life. I became a Certified Yoga Teacher in 2005.
