My name is Deborah Regan. I invite you to become part of my journey...
Deborah the traveling monk
In 2003 I traveled from Australia to expand my knowledge and experience in yoga and meditation. I participated in a 6-month, eyes closed, meditation retreat, known as Mastery of the Self with The Ishaya Monks.
After completing the intensive program, I stayed on for a further 2-months and completed my meditation teacher training in beautiful British Columbia.
For the next 6 years I traveled around the world, as a monk, sharing in, and leading and sharing meditation/yoga weekend classes, retreats and workshops.
Being an entrepreneur
Yoga, meditation and travel are great but people have to make a living, right? (That's what I thought anyway.)
So, in 2009, I came back to Canada and became a permanent resident and started a small business: Nail artistry. I set a small shop and did that full time for ten years.
My body sends a message
If you are here because your body has given you a "wake up call", I totally understand.
Early in 2019, I woke up one morning and could not pick anything up with my right hand. It had seized up and was very painful.
After numerous specialist appointments, they had found that my ulna nerve (in my arm) was damaged. Why? It was a severe, repetitive strain injury cause by sitting at my nail station desk and continually working on nails. It is the same kind of injury that people get working too much on the computer.
The treatment? Yoga
Deborah the yoga teacher
I completed my 200hr yoga teacher training program with the North American School of Yoga Science (British Columbia, Canada) in July 2019 and became a registered certified yoga instructor. Since then, I have also completed training and certification in Yin Yoga March, 2020. Chair Yoga, October, 2019. Pranayama and Meditation December 2020. Acu-Yoga March 2021. I have also completed my 300hr yoga teacher training with Wind of Prana (Colorado, USA) in April 2021. Yoga Nidra June 2020. My studies continue as becoming a yoga teacher has no ending.
Am I the yoga teacher for you?
I believe in the power of healing the body given the right tools, knowledge and guidance.
My own life has given me the best example—my arm has almost completely healed through regular yoga practice, nutrition and meditation. I am able to continue my artistic relationship with nails on a part-time basis, while keeping time for an essential: yoga.
Also, I believe in living a life full of joy and gratitude, and free of judgement. I know that yoga and meditation are helping me achieve that.
My personal journey and insights inform and guide my core teachings and practices at Yoga with Deborah.

Reiki Healing with Deborah
READY TO CREATE AMAZING SHIFTS IN YOUR LIFE?
Experience less physical, mental and emotional suffering in your life - today and everyday.
We all experience areas in our lives we struggle with. Often, these struggles can be traced back to our childhood experiences, to trauma in adulthood we have yet to overcome or to dis-functional and unhealthy dynamics in our current personal or professional lives. Sometimes, the struggles continue for years. We find ourselves stuck in repetitive patterns and suffer on a daily basis - but, it doesn’t have to be this way. To aid in your journey to a state of better wellbeing, I offer the following services, to both men and women: reiki, guided meditation, yoga and associated healing arts. If you are a little curious about the possibilities available for positive change, learning to make shifts and to creating a better life - I happily and humbly offer hope through a variety of modalities. - it's all about tapping into hope, creating change and experiencing more peace within ourselves and in our lives.
To identify and then come to an understanding of what has been and is still shaping your reality, will give you instant release and ignite hope in you. This hope often brings one to a place of feeling more comfortable in your own skin.
Once you are able to release energies that no longer serve you, your energy vibration will reach a higher level which transforms your perception of reality and creates new experiences to enjoy.
Peace gained can be shared through the healing arts studied and practiced globally. The sharing of these approaches to life enables you to feel more peaceful, grounded and connected in your life.
Sessions with Deborah
If you feel that something is holding you back and not sure where to start, or if Reiki energy healing work is for you, let’s just
talk a bit and see if it is a fit for you. Private sessions are designed to do the following: relieve stress and dis-ease, clearing and removing energy cords, contracts, negative thought patterns, and emotional blocks that no longer serve you; therefore releasing you from patterns of self-limitation and self-sabotage.
It always amazes me to see and hear many of my clients express their immediate feeling of the shift within and can totally change their physical, mental, and emotional lives through Reiki energy work, yoga and mindfulness with their new perspective. I have been studying energy work and ancient healing arts for more than two decades throughout the world. Exploring and sharing how the mind, body and soul are connected, and how we can break away from what holds us back to living our best lives, is my greatest passion. Reiki is a beautiful energy healing tool that can help cleanse your chakras and create alignment of your body, mind and soul.
Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. — Albert Einstein

Yin Yoga is a slower-paced, more meditative version of the popular physical and spiritual discipline of yoga. In Yin Yoga, the poses are held for a long period of time (typically three to five minutes or longer). This targets the connective tissues (such as the ligaments and even the joints) that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice, rather than focusing on the muscles. As a result, the asanas are more passive holds, with little muscular engagement. Why practice Yin? To increase Flexibility and Range of Motion.
Flow Yoga (also known as Vinyasa) is a style of yoga characterized by stringing asanas (postures) together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath. Flow Yoga/Vinyasa classes offer a variety of postures, and no two classes are ever alike. This type of yoga helps to develop a more balanced body as well as prevent repetitive motion injuries that can happen if you are always doing the same thing every day, like I did. As a philosophy, Vinyasa recognizes the temporary nature of things. We enter into a posture, are there for a while, and then leave. Vinyasa is a breath-initiated practice, that connects every action of our life with the intention of moving towards what is sacred or most important to us. I sometimes forget what lead me there. For me, it was a number of things, but my arm was what propelled me to dive deeper into healing. Why are you here? Keep your drishti (focus) on the prize. Something called you here...to heal an aliment in the body? To create more inner peace? To free yourself from anxiety? To gain freedom from the limitations of the mind? It can be any number of things...Whatever it is for you...bring it to the mat and explore the growth for yourself.
Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, just like that feeling when you are just about to doze off, typically induced by a guided meditation. Yoga Nidra is a form of active meditation. The practitioner follows instructions regarding different kinds of actions, without becoming distracted and while remaining completely awake and alert. Practitioners may appear asleep but the consciousness is actually operating at a deeper level of awareness.
Yoga Nidra is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of their inner world by following the guide's verbal instructions. This state of consciousness is different from meditation, in which concentration on a single focus is required with verbal cues. In yoga Nidra the practitioner remains in a state of light withdrawal of the 5 senses (pratyahara) with four senses internalized, and only hearing that connects to instructions given.
It is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining fully conscious. In lucid dreaming, one is mainly cognizant of the dream state, and has little or no awareness of one's actual environment. Yoga Nidra results in conscious awareness of the deep sleep state, which is called prajna in the Manduka Upanishad.
There is evidence that yoga Nidra helps relieve stress. An ancient technique from India, it has now spread worldwide and is also being applied by the US Army to assist soldiers to recover from post-traumatic stress disorder. Yoga Nidra gently unwinds the nervous system, which is the foundation of the body’s well-being.
The point of yoga is actually to gain flexibility and strength. One of the most popular yoga myths is the belief that you need to be flexible before ever setting foot on a mat. The truth is, flexibility isn't a prerequisite. In fact, a regular yoga practice will actually help you become more flexible over time.
