Stretch yourself to health at Yoga Mix Studio
Deborah Douglas began her journey on the path of Yoga in 1974 under the tutelage of Lex Gillan, founder of The Yoga Institute. At a young age, she felt the desire and pull to help others better themselves through exercise, stretching and meditation. She continued her yoga practice daily on her own and with other instructors, John Coons & Mary Blanchard to name a few. And over the years went to numerous retreats and workshops.
Also in 1974, she began her training in an Okinawan style of Karate called Shorin Ryu. As these two paths intertwined and she began to teach karate, she incorporated a lot of the Yoga stretches and positions into her karate warm ups. She went on to achieve the title of Renshi (6th degree black belt) and became a direct student of Shurgoro Nakazato of the Shorin Ryu Shorin Kan in Naha, Okinawa. After 30 years of training and teaching, she retired in 2007 but her desire to teach and help others never diminished.
In the Summer of 2012, she decided to pursue her desire to continue to teach but not in karate, in Yoga. She contacted her original instructor, Lex Gillan to see what she needed to do, and to her surprise, he had sold all his studios and had founded the Yoga Teacher Training and National Certification Course, which she signed up for immediately.
She is now the proud owner of the Yoga Mix Studio LLC located at 2519 Cartwright Road, Missouri City. She also offers classes in Tai Chi, and Zumba.
Yoga is a Sanskrit word meaning to yoke up or to bind. In yoking up, the mind, body and spirit come together as one to bring forth the higher self that lies in all of us. Strengthen the body ~ Sharpen the mind ~ Grow the spirit! In doing these three together in harmony creates the awareness of your higher self and in that awareness you create emotions of joy, happiness, bliss, compassion.
At Yoga Mix Studio, our mission is to help others grow physically and spiritually through stretching/meditation/exercise and to develop a way of life to ensure health and longevity.
In Yoga, you are as young as your spine is flexible.
Deborah is also available for private and buddy sessions at the studio and off premises. Call (281) 969-8175 for rates and times.
