Debbie van Leeuwen
hatha Astanga Led yoga
Debbie found yoga in Seattle, searching for something to heal her body and spirit. She fell in love with Vinyasa as it reminded her of dancing and instilled a sense of landing in her body straight away. Wanting to share that feeling, she took her 200hrs certification by the Yoga Works Teacher Training (Astanga/Iyengar/Istha based method) in New York in 2012. After moving back to Amsterdam, she followed David Lurey & Mirjam Wagner’s’ training on Ibiza, mounting up to a 500hrs (RYT) as well as doing Yin Yoga, dynamic fascia and face Yoga. She loves learning from taking classes regularly herself and teachings from different styles of Yoga and the worlds wisdom traditions. Her classes invite you to feel and see the pose through your body, starting from safe alignment for your body and following the breath. Whether it is a Yang or Yin class or a combination of both. She loves to share what a particular asana aims for in our body and soul. ‘Trust your body. It is smarter than your physical brain’.
