Karren Viersen

Karren fell in love with yoga 15 years ago. At first it was just a way to stay flexible and to combat a sedentary job. Karren found yoga not only helped with physical flexibility, it also increased strength and taught her the art of letting go. Karren especially enjoys yoga because it provides a sense of balance in a world that is often chaotic. The practice of mindful breathing and remaining focused also allowed Karren to experience a natural childbirth. After many years of practicing at various yoga studios, Karren made the decision to become certified and has been leading others in their journey of yoga for the last 4 years. “When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be”. Lao Tzu

 

Debbie Stephenson

Debbie started practicing yoga in 2008 in her hometown of Brisbane, Australia. She was seeking a safe, natural and sustainable way to relieve back pain, improve strength, and flexibility. In 2014, Debbie attended a transformative yoga retreat in California where she experienced the many other facets of yoga, including personal empowerment, spiritual connectedness, and above all, self-acceptance. She completed her 200 Hour Teacher Training with Yoga City in 2015. Debbie hopes to inspire others to develop a deeper connection with their own practice by letting go of negative “stuck” energy, and finding kindness, gratitude and joy from within.
