Deb Balise, E-RYT 200

I have worked in the veterinary business for 16 years with a special interest in dog behavior. I was introduced to yoga about 14 years ago when a co-worker talked me into taking a 6 week Pilates course. The yoga studio was a place I felt I could truly be myself for the first time without judgement. It allowed me little by little to trust my intuition and grow from a place of empowerment.

What I love Summer, hiking, biking, lazy nights at home with a good book, snowstorms, cross country skiing, watching people start their journey into yoga, watching an experienced yogi practice, leading a big, powerful hot yoga class

Why power yoga The vitality that is created as a result of building mental and physical strength, the peace that I get from learning how to find stillness in an intense practice.

Home Born and raised in Redmond, Washington; I moved to NH in 1998 and lived in Windham for 16 years before moving to Temple, where I would be happy to stay forever.

Favorite word Serendipity

What inspires me A really well written book, poetry, music, watching anybody proficient in their art share their talent, hiking the mountains of NH in the fall, the leaders in the Baptiste community, taking a well instructed power yoga class
