Debra began her journey into yoga and wellness 15 years ago while in high school.  She has been teaching yoga since 2001 with over 1000 hours in certifications.  She has been trained in a variety of styles including Jivamukti yoga, The Barkan Method, Hatha, Baptiste Power Yoga, Bikram and many other yoga methods. Dower is able to help students of all levels to find proper alignment so that each asana is rooted and dynamic, while creating a fun and playful atmosphere.

She has watched many people transform through yoga, but found that bodywork was also imperative for correcting misalignments from habitual holding patterns.

Dower has her massage therapy license, as well as other certifications, such as Thai massage, Anatomy Trains, and Structural Integration.  Debra takes an integrative approach, combining the application of Structural Integration, deep tissue massage therapies, with knowledge of neuromuscular therapy, body logic, and alignment in order to create a deep physiological change.
