Your retreat host

Deb Althoff brings a joyful and lighthearted approach to her yoga classes, helping students recognize their own glory, as well as their ability to heal and thrive. She believes that yoga can benefit every body, regardless of physical capabilities. You don’t need to be flexible to practice yoga – you just need to be willing.

Deb found the practice of yoga in the 1990’s and her life was forever changed. Her own practice revealed opportunities for emotional healing, and her yoga teacher studies led her to dive deeper into the therapeutic benefits of yoga.

Deb holds a 500-hour yoga teaching certification with an emphasis on healing with yoga therapy.
