Rishi Sandra has been a student of yoga since the 70's, and has a wealth of information on Hatha Yoga and Eastern philosophy. She is a practitioner of Ayurveda the life knowledge and natural medicine of India. She is a certified yoga teacher with a passion to teach as well as share her knowledge of the Yogic Lifestyle.
Debby’s yoga journey started at Sandra’s Aum Yoga Studio about 7 years ago. She intuitively knew there was more to yoga than the asanas (physical postures) but initially did not know what it was. After years of searching and self-study she learned that yoga was truly a way of life. As B.K.S Iyengar describes it… “Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day-to-day life and endows skill in the performance of one’s actions.” Debby wholeheartedly believes that yoga is a very individual and organic practice. Respecting the uniqueness of our individual bodies, she encourages students to be aware of their body’s messages and to make their own moment-to-moment adjustments, thus creating a safer approach to their practice. Debby completed her 200 hour yoga certification through YogaFit and has continued to study with Judith Lassater and Dr. Timothy McCall. Debby is living the dream in Austin, the Bat City where everyone is keeping it weird, with her husband Lawrence.
Stephanie began her practice at Aum Yoga Studio in 2013. She instantly fell in love the second she met the mat. As the practice evolved, a deep desire to become fully connected, mind, body and soul led her to discover Yahweh Yoga LLC out of Tempe, Arizona. Through them, she is certified as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) and Yahweh Yoga Teacher (YYT-200). Yoga Alliance has categorized Yahweh Yoga under its own style of yoga training. This is a Christian Style yoga that incorporates the Holy Bible which serves as its theology. Yoga is a method of connecting just as meditation, prayer and worship is to a believer. Principles of Anusara yoga, in regards to alignment, are incorporated into the teachings and focus to sync both movement and breathe to fully enhance the form of each pose for the individual.
Stephanie’s main goal of every class is to make it an experience for each individual attending and not just a class. She believes that every person is capable of doing something they feel comfortable or led to do while developing a beautiful awareness of how to honor their own limits and abilities.
Stephanie holds a Bachelor of Science in Rehabilitative Services with a concentration in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing from UTPA and an Associates in Social Work. She currently works at non-profit agency providing services to the community. When she is not teaching or working she enjoys spending time with family and friends.
