Debbie Murphy

From her early years in traditional academia (doctorate in exercise science, minor in psychology) and through three decades of yogic study, Debbi has searched for the best tools to help folks feel empowered, happy, and centered. A child of the idealistic sixties, Debbi grew up with a passion to help others live more full-filled lives. Convinced the answer lay in the mind-body connection, she spent her college years receiving a masters in Psychology and a doctorate in Exercise Physiology. Over the past few decades, Debbi has shared this science meets spirit message as owner and director of Shanti Teacher Training and Shanti Yoga Studio, in national conferences and festivals, and international retreats.  A regular contributor to several online blogs, Debbi also has videos on and Vimeo.
