Deborah Peake is the founder and head instructor of Mt. Pleasant Yoga, Vancouver and is a certified lyengar yoga teacher.
Deborah Peake began practicing Iyengar yoga in Australia in 1996 and has been teaching for the past 20 years.
To further her knowledge, Deborah regularly attends workshops with senior national and international teachers and has been fortunate to study at RIMYI, Pune, India with the Iyengars on several occasions.
Deborah believes that Iyengar yoga is accessible to all, no matter the circumstance, and that through regular, committed practice we become a better, more dynamic version of ourselves. Deb feels B.K.S. Iyengar teachings are a gift to be shared.
Her classes are taught with acceptance, warmth and a dash of humor, taking students toward a deeper connection to themselves than just the physical.
Deborah served on the BKS Iyengar Association of Vancouver over several years and is currently the Chair of the Workshop Committee.
Deb is also associated with the Karuna Mai Ma Foundation in Sohna, India. Through the ashram, Deb has developed a daily meditation practice, which compliments both her study of self and teaching of Iyengar yoga.
“The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.” B.K.S. Iyengar.
