Teachers > Deborah Tan
The stars aligned for Deborah when she decided to take her teacher training in Universal Yoga and met her guru Andrey Lappa in 2012. Captivated by the authentic and complete system of Universal Yoga that Andrey developed by weaving modern western science with the ancient eastern philosophy of yoga, Deborah has since studied extensively with Andrey in Singapore and in Nepal.
Andrei Ram, Copper Crow as well as Father Bruno Saint Girons have further enriched Deborah’s journey and continue to inspire her.
Deborah is always mindful to lead her students through a physically and energetically balanced sequence – whether static, dynamic, in a hot room or on the crossed mats of a Universal Yoga practice. For Deborah, the physical practices are the building blocks of Yoga. The ultimate goal, however, remains spiritual liberation. She guides students to find the balance between the discipline of traditional yoga and a personal journey embarked upon with an open and compassionate heart.
