Debbie Dixon Author of “The Path to Freedom Your guide to living the life of your dreams” is a Life Coach, inspirational speaker and Yoga teacher who stumbled into her first yoga class in 1997 and the spark was almost instantaneous–love at first sight. Having studied and taught yogic philosophy for many years before being formally introduced to the asana, taking her studies to the mat gave her the opportunity to experience with her own body, mind and spirit, the miracles this practice is capable of creating in ones’ life. Her journey into asana began with Ashtanga Yoga and eighteen years ago after the birth of her second son, her passion expanded into Hatha. She was still quite broken when she found Hatha and as she found alignment in her body the healing energy flowed in and corrected all that was broken. Although she has extended her knowledge into many different modalities of teaching Hatha continues to be where she goes for her healing medicine.
12 years ago she taught her first yoga class and shortly after she opened (Seven Hot Yoga) a studio/community she owned and ran for almost five years.
She Has been holding “Realizing your Dreams” workshops and seminars for over 15 years now inspiring, motivating people to step outside of their comfort zones and into a life filled with freedom, prosperity, joy, happiness and infinite possibilities. Now she guides people into their own self-discovery everyday as a yoga teacher. She also leads guided meditations and does yoga retreats all over the world. These retreats allow people to use yoga, meditation and her techniques to reconnect with their purpose and deepest desires, the essence of their being, while disconnecting from their everyday routines and finding themselves in a setting of paradise.
YOGA CHANGED MY LIFE! At seventeen, struggle was all I knew. Life hadn’t shown me much kindness or compassion. Instead it had become a constant stream of pain. I managed to hold it together. I needed to for my son. I felt like a broken windshield one stone away from being shattered. I didn’t come into the world broken—no one does. A childhood riddled with dysfunction and sexual abuse left scars on my psyche and had tainted what I now know, is the most valuable asset I have—my self-worth
I owe my life to an unlikely source—Madonna. As a child of the eighties, she was everything I wanted to be- strong, confident and beautiful and she did yoga. So, I decided I should do yoga too.
My first experience on the mat was Traditional Ashtanga, 23 years ago and I can say with certainty that was the day I stepped onto my Path to Freedom. My teacher had warned me that yoga had side effects she said, “Yoga will heal your body and your life and you won’t be able eat McDonald’s anymore.” I had no idea just how prophetic that statement was.
Having spent most of my life in survival mode, self-medicating just to make it through the day with drugs, alcohol. Anxiety and panic attacks were something I decided were a part of life.
But, through the practice of yoga, I found myself. Yoga forced me to sit with myself. To find comfort in the uncomfortable. To rely on my breath to get me through. The mantra “This too shall pass.” would sometimes be the only thing that got me through the vigorous 90 min practice aside from looking forward to savasana. I found peace with myself and my circumstances. I tuned into the blessings in my life and started to change my story from victim to the person who overcame.
It wasn’t overnight. I never put it down or took a break and yoga eventually became the only medicine I needed. It fixed everything.
Then, as if I had spent my whole life sitting in a dark room unaware that light even existed yoga turned on a light within me. About twelve years ago I realized how many other people were just like me. Stuck in the dark. I made it my life goal to shine the light of yoga and healing on as many people as I could. Now I am the Author of “The Path to Freedom Your guide to living the life of your dreams,” a Life Coach, inspirational speaker and Yoga teacher. I guide people into their own self-discovery everyday through yoga and meditation. I lead yoga retreats and because of yoga I can now say “I am living the life I love and loving the life I live”.
