One 2 One Private Sessions Student Feedback

“Although I have practiced yoga for many years, a knee injury caused me to very much limit my practice. A 1:1 with Debs gave me back my confidence and motivation. Debs ascertained which postures I could achieve and which I should be aiming for to improve my strength and aid recovery. Debs carefully, considerately and skillfully tailored the session to my needs. The personal alterations and modifications she showed me meant I could safely continue my practice. She is very encouraging!

Debs Fawcett is a wonderful yoga teacher, with skills and a personality to match. She has the patience, the kindness to explain things to her students, the relaxing way she teaches, which is a very thorough way, at the same time she is professional in her outlook towards the practice of Dru yoga.  In fact she is a fine example of the standards of teaching Dru yoga, and Dru yoga needs more like her, also she is very gentle with her approach.

Oh yes, not sure if I mentioned this before, but still a BIG thank you to you – I am still using the detox green smoothie recipe you gave me as part of your detox course – usually a few times a week, and I’m also using the Potassium based Soup recipe – it really is delicious – I’m making a weekly batch up at the moment & have it every day for lunch at work. It’s filling & also helps me keep ‘alkaline’.

Debs has passion and compassion and willingly and enthusiastically passes on her knowledge to her students. My 1:1 sessions were invaluable to me, giving me a greater insight into how my own body is built (we are not all the same!) and how it works. I am now thankfully fully recovered but still value and take heed of the advice Debs gave me.” — Marie

Anyone thinking of having a one to one course with Debs will not regret it, and in fact if they are new to yoga, they would benefit immensely with a one to one course before they actually join a full working students class with Debs.  Anyone going for a one to be course, would also pick up very easily on the postures because of working closely with their teacher Debs, who would be able to point out any shortcomings to the student, and be able to correct them as they go along. When they are then able to join a full student class, they will  have had the benefit of getting to know Debs well and be able to work in close harmony with her.

You have played/are playing a part in my journey to recovery and I would like to thank you again for all your help and advice. Big hugs to you.

I have a one to one yoga class with Debs of Soul Harmony Yoga once a week, and have done for over 12 months.

I derive more benefit than in group classes, because it is a personalised class just for you, and Debs can gauge how and what you are feeling the day of the lesson, therefore, tailoring it just for you.

I have been helped personally with these one to one lessons, because there is a feeling of relaxation throughout the whole of the lesson, much more so than in a group class. These relaxing techniques are taught by Debs in the most subtle of ways, that you are hardly aware it’s happening, but it does. Also there is time to get the asanas just right for me personally, because I do have a small number of knee problems, and if Debs feels I need more time on certain postures, we will return to those more than is possible in a group class.

I decided to do a 1:1 session with Debs when I found she was leaving us to start her new adventures! I wanted to check that I was doing the postures and alignments right to give me the confidence to carry on doing yoga by myself. I found it very valuable having the attention as she helped me see what I could do to strengthen my practice. I’m looking forward to the online courses and will definitely be signing up! Since I started doing yoga with Debs I have found it very beneficial in becoming more flexible, my back ache is now none existent and my asthma has improved though doing the breathing exercises. I would definitely recommend giving yoga with Debs a try!

Debs yoga Class has banished my arthritis, improved my posture and core strength. Most importantly it is blissfully relaxing and spiritually healing. It’s great to understand the benefits of the postures and breathing for the mind and body.

Debs is a welcoming, relaxed and informative teacher. She caters for all abilities and I have come away feeling deeply enriched from many of the classes.

Classes are engaging and unique. An encouraging voice gently coaches you to drop deeper into poses and relaxation. Always joyful.

Debs is the best yoga teacher. I have been attending her classes since you started at the sanctuary and hate to miss a week. She’s mindful of arthritic joints and individual limitations and her gentle manner and voice relax mind and body. I always feel refreshed and rejuvenated. I couldn’t get through the week without it! Highly recommended.

Brilliant tutor. A must in one’s life.

The information the exercises and nutrition have been quite simple to remember and relevant to my situation.

∞ Ohh yes – not sure if I mentioned this before, but still a BIG thank you to you – I am still using the detox green smoothie recipe you gave me as part of your detox course – usually a few times a week, and I’m also using the Potassium based Soup recipe – it really is delicious – I’m making a weekly batch up at the moment & have it every day for lunch at work. It’s filling & also helps me keep ‘alkaline’.

Feedback from Yoga and Wellbeing Workshops

The workshops are a useful time to reflect and focus in more depth. Lovely experience which helps to destress and increase physical and emotional states. Highly recommended. Thanks Debs-another great session. The more I learn I realise I need to practice even more. The information sheets were really helpful and I like the body visual with the colour chakras which I’ll use. Please can I have the brownie recipe! Thanks. 

Thank you for another excellent workshop Debs. A well-balanced mix of practical and physical yoga and the underlying philosophies. Really enjoyed further exploring the energetic aspects of Dru Yoga. Keep doing what you’re doing because what you do is amazing.

Really excellent workshop. The mix of theoretical input alongside the yoga and relaxation and meditation is very helpful. Thanks Debs

From Nutrition & Detox Workshops

Thank you so much for the really informative workshop about nutrition and detoxing, which combined with the yoga session it was a great way to spend a Sunday morning.  The food you prepared for us was gorgeous and it was great to have such lovely ‘super foods’  imaginatively presented.

As someone with an acidic body I was especially interested to learn about the foods and supplements to make the body more alkaline. Your sensible approach I realise that isn’t easy to always eat healthily to make small changes over time was very much appreciated. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole workshop. Thank you. 

I loved the yoga and was very pleased that I was able to follow you easily and with confidence. You created a lovely environment for a new comer – warm and welcoming, relaxed but I knew you were paying attention to my abilities.

Effect of and anti-inflammatories. Need of balance antacids and outlines. More alternative to rice and potatoes. Using seeds and oils more in salads. 

Very informative and complex. Food very good! 

Thank you enjoyed the class. Found it informative and educational in a relaxed atmosphere. 

Good presentation on healthy eating.

I enjoyed the food Yoga was very good, stretching and relaxing. Generally relaxing atmosphere. Informative information without being dictational. Thank you
Enjoyed the day. Helpful hints and will try out some of the recipies.

A lot of information is known but forgotten in everyday living. A good reminder of the importance of a good diet.
