Welcome to True North Yogini! My name is Debbie and I'm a North Country yoga teacher and certified personal trainer, slow (but improving!) triathlete and runner, wife, and mother to 2 kids and a few hairy beasts. I've been living in the Adirondack mountains in Upstate New York since 2009, when my family escaped from New Jersey to our vacation home. I left behind my career (don't tell anyone, but I was a CPA) and a steady paycheck and opened my yoga studio, True North Yoga, in the tiny village of Schroon Lake. Since then life has been an adventure that I share here.
Why True North? In addition to living pretty far north, it reflects finding my right path and following it. No matter which way I turn, the compass needle always guides me to my true north: teaching yoga in my favorite place in the world.
This blog has lots about yoga, a bunch of triathlon and running training and racing reports, a handful of tales about getting outdoors in the Adirondacks and a sprinkling of stories about marriage, kids, homeschooling, creative pursuits and the rest of life. Enjoy your visit and contact me anytime!
