Deb Shaw

Hatha, vinyasa and yin yoga teacher

Deb was introduced to Acharya Upendra Roy’s yoga centre in Pitt St, Sydney, through a friend during a difficult time. She immediately felt supported and nurtured after her first class and her course was set.

Deb began her yoga practice with Acharya Upendra Roy in Sydney in 1993 and studied under him for over a decade. Soon after completing Acharya’s Teacher Training course in 2004 Deb started teaching a traditional Hatha and Raja Yoga and Meditation style around Sydney city and the inner west in gyms, private classes, centres and her own small studio in St Peters

After wandering through a spiritual wilderness for a while (and learning why it is so important to find a teacher) DS was drawn to the spiritual activism she found at Samadhi Yoga in Newtown (now Jivamukti Yoga Sydney) and felt she had found a new spiritual home. She graduated from the Samadhi Teacher Training course under the guidance of Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher, Katie Manitsas in 2012. DS completed Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Training with founders Sharon Gannon and David Life in Costa Rica in 2014.

DS is grateful for the support and teachings of Acharya, Maurie Earls, Dr Orna Triguboff, Kamala, Yogeswari, Matthew Bergan, Katie Manitsas, Keith Kempis, Jules Febre, Sarah de Graaf, Doug Whittaker, Jessica Sage Stickler, Sarah Owen, Cat Alip-Douglas, Amy McDonald and all teachers to come.
