Deb Wineman

With an intention to help others, I spent many years working as an attorney, teacher, community activist and fundraiser before I became a yoga instructor. My own yoga practice, inspiring teachers and my friends revealed to me my calling to teach peace through yoga. My goal is to create a safe place where students can practice yoga together and let go of all judgment, ego, distractions and doubt. In a soulful vinyasa flow style, I emphasize alignment while leading a strong, steady-paced "moving meditation" accessible to all levels. I completed a 200-hour Teacher Training at Moksha Yoga Center in 2008-9, and I continue to study meditation, anatomy and yoga daily. For several years, I have taught yoga to teens and pre-teens in both the school and the studio and have seen how a regular practice can be transformative. Every fall, I run a yoga workshop for young competitive tennis players, and I often work with athletic teams to customize sport-specific practices. Off the mat, you will find me with a book studying the rich history and philosophy behind yoga, listening to music seeking uplifting songs and living my yoga with my three kids and my husband who provide me additional grounding and joy.
