My Yoga journey started about 7 years ago. If you would tell the younger Debby that one day I would become a Yoga- and Pilates Instructor, she probably would have laughed.
I was living a quite unhealthy lifestyle and never paid attention to my mental- or physical health. From going out, drinking alcohol and eating lots of junk food, to having a bad sleeping habit (something with many sleepless nights). For me all of this felt ‘normal’. On top of that I hated my body and the way it looked, but somehow I didn’t feel motivated to change the way I felt about myself. So how did this change and what did my Yoga Journey teach me?
I think I must have been around 20 years old when I first started with paying more attention on my health and lifestyle. Mr. Boyfriend and I signed up for a subscription at our local gym and that was the beginning of my “fit journey”. I don’t know if I should really call it a fit journey back then, as I went through several unhealthy phases in my life.
From eating more balanced, to following an extreme crash diet, to going through an anorexic phase combined with overdoing cardio and punishing myself for eating too much. I forced and pushed my body over its limits multiple times as I didn’t know how to listen to the signals of my body yet. This resulted in pain, frustration and wanting to give up.
Fortunately I didn’t give up and realized something had to change ASAP! Once I conquered the most dark period of my life, I was able to find peace with my journey and found my way into a balanced, healthy lifestyle.
Pressing the reset button really changed my life for the better. I fell in love with working out and doing regular Yoga practices, accepted my scars and heartaches, and also found a true passion: inspiring people and guiding them through their journey to self-love and inner peace.
In 2016 I signed up for a Yoga Teacher Training and POP Pilates Instructor Program and was really looking forward to become certified.
My journey as a Yoga- and Pilates Instructor has been an amazing experience so far and I have been guiding many wonderful people through their journey to self-care.
Thanks to my journey I felt more passionated then ever and decided to follow my dreams. I launched my business “Zen With Debby” in 2020 and am teaching several group- and private classes in my area. I also started a YouTube Channel during the Covid pandemic to inspire my community with weekly Yoga videos. And I had the opportunity to teach at International Yoga day for Think Pink Belgium in 2020 and 2021.
Being able to share my passion with the world is an incredible experience and feeling! In these past years I have had the blessing to guide many people in their Yoga- and (POP) Pilates journey. The love and support I receive from my students, community and loved ones is another reason why I feel lucky and blessed. I would not be the person I am today if it wasn’t for them… and YOU!
