Debbie’s high standard of teaching, and the care she takes to ensure we are listening to our bodies, is excellent
I have been attending Debbie’s classes for quite some time now but, due to the pandemic and lifestyle changes, these have recently been taking place via Zoom.
Debbie’s high standard of teaching, and the care she takes to ensure we are listening to our bodies, is excellent irrespective of where the class is taking place.
Whilst I miss the social aspect of seeing and talking to everyone personally, the zoom class has felt more like a private session with Debbie always encouraging and checking that a pose / exercise is being carried out safely and correctly.
I think the Zoom classes have allowed us to focus on what we can do as an individual and be mindful of what is right for our own body.
Debbie’s classes have gone far beyond exercise, they have been so important to my physical, mental & emotional health
Having the opportunity to continue with both Yoga and Pilates during lockdown has helped me enormously, both physically and mentally.
As someone who is shielding I have found the lockdown incredibly isolating, but through Debbie’s classes I feel part of a community – even whilst being unable to see other people. Debbie has gone out of her way to build this sense of community, with WhatsApp groups to let us know about classes, and feedback and photos to keep us all involved, which I have really appreciated.
The routine provided by Debbie’s classes has kept me motivated, but not only that, despite being at a distance, Debbie takes extra care to maintain the standard of teaching. For example, she makes sure we are prepared before class, watches us during class and gives us feedback, as well as keeping up to date with everyone’s aches providing alternative postures to help.
Debbie has adapted her classes to the current situation in a way that goes beyond practical considerations. Each week centres around a theme or intention, which seem perfectly tailored to the current news and issues. For example, working on posture to help those working from home. Before each class she talks to us about what is happening and the impact it has on us physically and mentally. In this way, her classes have gone far beyond mere exercise, they have been so important to my physical, mental and emotional health, and given me a sense of focus and community throughout this period, and for all of this I could not be more grateful to Debbie
I’ve really been enjoying the sessions and whilst I don’t tend to join in with the conversations (there’s not much I can really add to a conversation about ladies body shapes) I do enjoy having a cup of tea whilst doing the classes. Joking aside, I have no problems with motivation and do enjoy it when you have a weekly theme. I actually find that they’re not only helping with the normal aches and pains but they’re helping to give me a little more structure to my days and are helping to distract my mind from what’s currently going on.
Thanks for what you’re doing.
I have found the classes really beneficial during the lockdown. I feel so much better being able to take part in yoga classes l know if it wasn’t for the class I probably wouldn’t bother. You have offered a great time table with plenty of choice, long may you continue.
Thank you, Jen?
I welcomed the Yogatri Zoom classes right from the start. Living alone they have really helped me to maintain my practice and give me some structure to my weeks. Seeing the familiar faces is lovely and I feel like I am right there with you in your lovely studio. I am certainly feeling the benefits in my mobility and posture.
I do find some of the ‘flow’ work challenging and would love to see a second easier class at the back end of the week. I feel the classes gives great value for money too. Indeed, I am hoping that the online classes will continue. I will be moving out of the area in the next few weeks and I really want to continue my practice with you so please don’t stop!
Love and best wishes, Pam.
I enjoy all your classes. I like the fact that you build challenge into each one.
It is so important that we make time to focus on being in the present, especially when we are on our mat. It is easy to get caught in the loop of stress and anxiety, when we are surrounded by so much uncertainty. You go out of your way to facilitate this.
I would have no hesitation in recommending your classes to other people. They would definitely benefit from your knowledge and expertise. This all comes with the added benefit of being part of the Yogatri community. Everyone is so supportive and friendly. We all bring something different to the party and that is part of its charm.
I love doing my 3 classes a week with you and feel that I have benefitted hugely from them. Firstly, it was because I wasn’t able to go out and therefore needed to exercise but I genuinely feel better (it’s obvious to say) as the more you do the better it is.
I’m very grateful that you started up so promptly and I know in part that was a business decision but you’ve undoubtedly made a lot of people happy. I do have to push myself a bit because of my painful hip and knee, but I need to keep my muscles and joints as flexible as possible.
Lots of love, Molly
I want to say a huge thank you to you, as along with many businesses you have amended how you deliver your amazing classes in such a short period of time.
Your classes really keep me sane at the hardest of times and give me the time to focus my mind, which particularly during this time can be very difficult. I think the adaptations you have made are helping so many people to cope with this situation. I can’t wait until we can all be back in class together, but in the meantime I still look forward to your online classes. You are an amazing teacher who considers all your yogis and carefully plans the classes to be inclusive for all. You’re not only a teacher but someone who cares for everyone who does your classes.
Thank you for being you xx ?
I have been coming to Debbie’s classes for a year now and having attended various other yoga classes in the area I can honestly say that Debbie’s is by far the best. She always changes her classes to keep them varied and always offer different levels depending on fitness & flexibility.
I always come away from Debbie’s class feeling stretched & relaxed.
I started doing Yoga with Debbie about 9 months ago and just missed 3 weeks due to my holidays. I can’t believe how much I have missed the classes both physically & mentally.
