Yoga with Debs

online yin class this evening
We're moving into our early summer practice tonight. Working with our pericardium and triple heater energy channels - warming up to summer and the a more Yang time of year.

Interestingly the time of our practice (8.30-9.30pm) is the optimum time of day for these meridians.

We'll be encouraging a positive emotional state and an opportunity to wind down and quieten our emotional brains - all important for a good night's sleep.

Frankincense is the oil for this season if you like to a scented candle or oil during the practice.

Usual props and please book on in good time if possible if you're planning a drop in. Book via The Wee Retreat website please.

See you this evening 🥰

What I offer

Seasonal Flow Yoga

Seasonal Yoga flow is a style of dynamic Yoga practice which is designed to align you with the changing energies of nature and the seasons. It is a practice that improves physical strength and flexibility and brings balance and harmony to your life.

Yoga for Children

Children live in a busy world the same as adults. Helping them to be still, to feel good and feel balanced provides them with essential life skills.

Yoga is creative, fun and educational, suitable for all ages and capabilities.

Family Yoga

Family Yoga is open to everyone – kids,  mums, dads, Grandmas and Grandpas, Carers, aunties, uncles, cousins and great-great-great Auntie Jean! No yoga experience required and you do not need to be super fit, just a willing spirit!


This flow applies the principles of qigong to yoga, combining the two practices to form a steady, flowing practice focusing on movement with breath stimulating meridian lines (energy pathways throughout the body) supporting our organs and systems, stretching and lengthening muscles and moving our joints with ease.

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga as exercise, incorporating principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, with asanas (postures) that are held for longer periods of time. This practice is designed to help you sit longer, and more comfortably, in meditation by stretching connective tissue around the joints. Using meditation and breathing techniques to restore harmony and balance with our emotions and mental health.

Tweens & Teens Yoga

As well as the physical benefits of physical strength, flexibility and balance from a regular practice, yoga can provide teens with essential life tools such as self-esteem and confidence, inner and outer strength, attention and concentration, and heightened awareness of both oneself and others.

Parent & Babies/Toddlers

Yoga is beneficial for all babies & toddlers, you don’t need to practice yoga or even know anything about yoga to get started. Sessions include massage, stretching, movement, breathing, and relaxation along with rhymes and songs.

Yoga for Children with Additional Needs

Bringing yoga to children with additional needs including autism, ADHD, Cerebral Palsy, Down’s Syndrome, learning disability/ difficulties, PMLD, complex needs and other physical challenges to help them reach their potential. Sessions focus on Breathing, Physical postures, Deep pressure massage, Sound therapy, Mindfulness and Relaxation.

Schools & Nurseries

What people are saying about Yoga with Debs…

“I’ve practiced for a number of years but had never tried Yin yoga before – I LOVED it! Debs is fantastic leading the class through the postures, just the right amount of instruction vs quietness, and I really like how she tells us what benefits each pose delivers to the body. Just what I needed after a long stressful day at my desk. Loved the deep stretches, felt physical but peaceful and calming at the same time. I’m definitely a convert and will be signing up for more classes.”

A happy yin yoga student

Debs is a fantastic yoga teacher, she oozes calmness and kindness and makes everyone so welcome. Whether a complete beginner or experienced in yoga, young or old, bendy or not so bendy – she makes it work for everyone. Her seasonal yoga classes are really different and I’ve learned loads about how our mind and bodies adjust to the different seasons in the year. Her online classes are great too, the perfect tonic to get me though self-isolation! Can’t recommend her and her classes enough!

Seasonal Yoga Student

My Jessica 7 and Finlay 6 LOVE these classes! Debs has such a lovely way with all the kids (and parents) even though my boy can be distracted and fidgety Debs keeps it positive and him focused and he comes out of class so happy. Jessica my eldest is really begining to understand her body and movement and has really progressed this last three months. Today they came out of the summer camp class and Finlay said “that was the best fun ever” well done Debs you are creating something so special!

Mum with 2 children who attend classes with me

This is an AMAZING class. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Caitlin got so much from it and really enjoyed it. Lots of helpful tips and easy little strategies for children to help them to relax. Lovely nurturing environment and a caring teacher. We are very much looking forward to the summer sessions. Thank you Debs xx

Mother of 11 year old

My kids weren’t at all sure if they’d like this – they’ve seen me practice and it looks ‘boring’. They changed their minds after just one class with Deborah. I’m told it’s ‘way more fun than grown up yoga’. My son loves the games and my daughter loves the relaxation. They’ve both really responded to it – Deborah has a great positive approach.

A Happy Parent

My boys love their weekly yoga class! Their favourite part is the relaxation at the end. Such a fun way to get kids into yoga. Brilliant!

A Happy Parent

My son absolutely loves this class & looks forward to it every week. He enjoys the yoga, the games & especially the relaxation at the end. He has also found the breathing exercises helpful at bedtime. Debs is the perfect yoga teacher for kids!

A Happy Parent

Debbie is a great teacher and ambassador for the benefits yoga. She really understands her subject and so is able to teach all levels and abilities. I have been with Debbie since my first introductory course which gave me a firm base to build my practise on. I have taken her vinyassa flow and seasonal flow classes and always leave feeling better for being there. She gives me the deeper understanding of yoga to take into my own practise.and feel confident when on my mat at home. Thank you for being a wonderful teacher!
