Debby Green

LEVEL 1

Debby Green has been practicing Iyengar Yoga since 1996. She came to yoga after 30 years of ballet and 20 years as a competitive ballroom dancer, seeking a different way to be in the body.

“When I first encountered Iyengar Yoga, I recognized how profound it is, but I did not yet realize how completely it would transform me,” she says. “This is Mr. Iyengar’s genius; I see transformation, in many forms, in every student.”

In 2007, Debby completed Teacher Training at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York with Senior Teachers Mary Dunn and James Murphy. She studied with the Iyengar Family in Pune, India, in 2010.

Since 2003, Debby has also practiced Rolfing Structural Integration, a form of bodywork based on the idea of fascial connection forming structure. This study deeply informs her understanding in yoga practice and teaching, and vice versa. It describes another way to speak about the kosas, the sheaths of the body in yoga philosophy.

Debby feels deeply grateful to all her teachers, beginning with Margaret Craske, her ballet teacher from the age of six, up to B.K.S. Iyengar. “All of my teachers’ voices are with me each time I teach,” she says.

A favorite epigram, taken from E. M. Forster’s Howard’s End, is “only connect”.
