As a student of Yoga for 20 years, I love sharing what I know of this transformative practice with others. I've taken four trips to Mysore, India, to study at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute  and have also been honored to practice with many other teachers  — including Noah Williams, Leigha Nicole and John Berlinsky   — all who have reinforced my belief in yoga's power to help heal mind, body and spirit. I've also apprenticed with Vance Selover, and assisted Timothy Lynch.

I currently teach at Harbor Bay Club, offer private instruction by appointment (email deborahRcrooks @ for more info), and substitute teach at studios throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
