Thoughts of a Yogini

“It’s my wish to spread the love, joy, light and equanimity of yoga and meditation to ever increasing circles of people in the hopes that one day we can all change the world and fill it with love.”

What students are saying?

“Yoga to the max! Debra is a very well-versed yoga teacher and is extremely knowledgeable in all types of yoga. Will you love her classes? Absolutely. I leave class with a renewed calm in my life – re-energized and healthy. Thank you Debra for bringing the joy of yoga to my life.” Carol Malinas

“Debra is a sensitive  and attentive teacher, attuned to her students’ unique abilities and limitations. I value the way she  can adapt a pose so that it is effective and does not exacerbate an injury.  She has a marvellous toolkit of care so that each class brings some new understanding and experience that seems tailor made.  Each time I feel a little bit transformed.” Leslie Scrivener

“Yin yoga with Debra Zina Black is a salve for mind, body and soul; healing, energizing and opening me to the possibilities of the best of me. Debra is a compassionate and generous teacher, always mindful of my limitations but gently prodding me to explore the limits of my comfort zone. Making time for Debra’s yin and meditation classes in her lovely Queen West loft with its inspiring views is a gift to myself.” Kathy English

“I have to recommend my friend and yoga teacher Debra Black’s workshops! Yin and Mindfulness Meditation was AMAZING. Very grounding and peaceful, as well as full of information and learning. Thank you so much Debra for the inspiration and light. Namaste!” Michele Guevara
