Deb Dobbin

Dynamic Flow / Wed 5pm, Sun 9am

As one of Santa Barbara’s most loved and respected teachers, Deb Dobbin’s students often refer to her classes as transformational, humorous, creative and profoundly powerful. She has taught Vinyasa yoga for 18 years, studying with masters like Erich Schiffmann and Sarah Powers, as well as Ganga and Tracy White. Drawing on Ashtanga, Iyengar and Yin Yoga traditions, she weaves the gifts offered by her mentors into a potent and unique style of teaching. Deb is most recognized for inspiring her students to take responsibility for their practices, while coaching them to translate their learning into every area of their lives. She boldly addresses the habits that impact their everyday lives, and challenges them to shift their limiting beliefs to generate courage, full self-expression and self-realization. Living life from the inside out, Deb blends her passion for yoga mastery and jewelry design into a seamless expression of her creative capacity. In fact, it’s not uncommon to find Deb in her yoga studio at the break of dawn building a piece of jewelry inspired by a dream the night before. Her gemstone designs arise from an exquisite eye and a spontaneous, intuitive wisdom; a creative process that mirrors the intensity and challenge of her packed yoga classes. Deb lives in Santa Barbara with her husband and the youngest of her three sons. Link:
