If you have never attended a workshop before or are worried about whether you can survive a workshop then this is the one for you. We know starting to attend workshops can be a daunting prospect so we have put one on just for you.  No teachers will be attending it is all just for you, the yoga student.  And who better to teach it than Debbie Wilkinson. 

Debbie’s first yoga experience came as a child when her friend’s Mum would encourage them to join her while doing her yoga home practice. Afterwards they had Eccles cakes straight from the oven, both impossible to resist!

Jump forward over a decade to 1992 New Zealand, working as a ‘WOOFER’ (Willing Workers On Organic Farms) on a round the world backpacking trip, she found a Yoga book and with time to spare began playfully to explore the Asanas (postures)

Returning home, she finally found herself a class with teacher David Reddicen who introduced her to Manchester and District Institute of Iyengar Yoga (MDIIY)

Debbie was recommended by her teacher on to the teacher training course, and was advised that she should join Jeanne Maslen’s class.

Qualifying as a teacher in 2002 she began teaching in Hebden bridge. Debbie has continued to upgrade her teaching certificate through further studies and now holds the Level 3 certificate. She also mentors students towards taking their teacher training certificate. Debbie continues going to regular ‘Teacher classes’ at the MDIY, and continues to attended senior training workshops online and throughout the UK.

She feels honoured to have spent time studying with the Iyengar family at the Iyengar Institute in Pune, India and in the UK. She is looking forward to returning to Pune, when it’s possible again, until then she is delighted to be attending classes with teachers from RIMYI online.
