Debbie is a Yoga Therapist who works in a counseling center focusing on people who have trauma.
“After 10 years (500 + hrs ) of teaching group yoga classes, my motivation was waning and it began to feel stale and rote. I could either carry on teaching group classes and the occasional private class or I could really dive deep into yoga. I felt stuck.
That changed when I met Brandt a few years ago at an IAYT conference. He stood out to me among the more serious and clinical yoga people there as someone who was relatable and real. Curious to learn more about his school, I looked into the program.
The online (in my jammies!) study format appealed to me. The retreat weekend in beautiful upstate New York was the peace, quiet and seclusion I needed too. I knew yoga still had the potential to continue to change me and the lives of my students, so I enrolled. A quickly discovered that the training was in-depth and immediately applicable. It was perfect for where I was in my yoga career.
The program offers a balance of anatomy and the chakras, energy and consciousness. I highly recommend new students engage in the Q&A’s and forum early on. The retreats are a great way to meet your fellow students. I cannot underscore the value of those relationships more. I have made lifelong friends through Breathing Deeply.
Since enrolling as a student at Breathing Deeply, my personal practice has flourished. I have gotten out of old teaching patterns and received inspiring and concrete tools. I now help my clients and students more deeply on their journey, be it physical, energetic, mental or spiritual.
I had reached the point where I wanted to take my learning to the next level. For me, it was Breathing Deeply. I would encourage anyone seeking the same growth I was to learn more about the Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy program.”

Although valuable on their own, combining the concepts of “Discipline and Surrender” can be important for the evolution of our meditation practice. In this episode, meditation teacher Brandt Passalacqua references the Yoga Sutra and the Yoga Spandakarika texts as he explains how discipline, or “the willingness to maintain the perspective we have found through practice,” […]
