Canadian born, Debbie (Divya) developed a daily practice in yogasana with Swami Shivanandaji in Goa, India. Swamiji's gentle and spiritual approach encouraged her to travel to the Himalayas to learn more of yoga philosophy and build a foundation of daily practice and lifestyle with these teachings. This journey led her to the teachings of the Sivananda style of yoga, a system stemmed in Hatha yoga. She has been teaching since 2008 and continues to develop practice along her journey. Debbie lives in both the UK and Canada.
