About the instructor: Deborah King
Deborah King has been teaching since 2001 and is a lifelong practitioner of yoga, having grown up with a mother who taught yoga and creative movement. Her study deepened as she intensified her study of the theatrical arts as a teenager, and when she came to The Theatre School of DePaul University, she discovered the Iyengar tradition. She has studied in many eclectic traditions with many wonderful teachers, and with her first pregnancy, began teaching herself. She received her certification from Eight Limbs Yoga in Chicago, under Per Erez, Miguel Latronica, and Carla Douros, and went on to assist in the Teacher training for 2 years, as well as being the prenatal and postnatal presenter. She taught beginning, advanced, continuing, prenatal, postnatal, and childrens’ yoga, and apprenticed for 2 1/2 years with Gabriel Halpern at Yoga Circle in Chicago in therapeutic yoga in the Iyengar tradition. In Seattle, she studies Vijnana yoga with Kathryn Payne. After some years off with her exquisite children, she returned to teaching in Seattle at the beginning of 2013. Also a professional actress, she has been seen in Seattle at ACT and Seattle Children’s Theatre, and many theatres in Chicago, as well as several films. Her classes emphasize the internal experience of alignment, the use of intent to explore the body’s story, and the practice of yoga as both process and celebration. Deborah is currently enrolled in Integrative Yoga Therapy’s Advanced certification program through IAYT. She has a deep passion for the healing potential of yoga and for making the practices accessible to all people.
