What an amazing experience! The way she crafts her class is so insightful. It’s like she has some secret pathway to see inside your heart and life and then gives you exactly what you need!! I left her class feeling exhausted yet energized – and closer to God and myself.

Deb brings a wealth of knowledge to the yoga mat! She leverages her wide array of training to deliver classes that are customized to the needs of the students through a combination of asana, pranayama, teachings, musings, aromatherapy, and physical touch. Her energy and joy are absolutely contagious! I leave each class feeling closer to my surroundings, my fellow students, my travel partner, and my true self!

Deb Kern brings a special kind of energy to a group that is simply uplifting. I was hesitant to try the class that involves dancing, because believe it or not I’m shy, especially when it comes to dancing to anything except to country music. During that class, I had an experience where the last bit of human based shyness just disappeared, and I got “caught in the spirit” of it and realized that I was just dancing around not really thinking about what I was doing. I also started to feel like a unity with everyone in the room like everyone’s personal ego walls were temporarily turned off and it was just one big heart in there. Everyone was connected at that level. That was rad.
