COST: $495 before August / $595 before August 15 / $795 after
(open to teachers & non-teachers alike)

How is this training different?

Purposeful assisting rapidly accelerates understanding in yoga practice. Yet conventional assisting courses rely on primarily “corrective” adjustments (from the outside in), instead of harnessing the natural intuition of the student in the pose.


In this training, learn to co-create with students to maximize independent learning, increased coordination & muscle memory, while simultaneously promoting deep, relaxation in action (from the inside out). Hardwire new confidence & knowledge through use of action & resistance, stability & grounding, and intensity & duration.

While traditional assists will be covered as foundation, this interactive weekend certification will unveil entirely new perspectives on yoga anatomy, physiology and non-verbal communication drawn from Debbie’s 30 years of working with bodies in motion.

Cancellation Policy: In the event of cancellations, no refunds will be issued. Instead, student will receive a credit to use at any future event (training or retreat) with Debbie or Wild Abundant Life. Certain exclusions may apply. Ask for details.

About Bryan:

Bryan Kest has been practicing yoga since 1979 and has been teaching since 1985. He developed his unique, distinctive style of yoga, Original Power Yoga, in 1979. Over the years, this style, an amazing workout for the body, mind and spirit, has made him a well-known, popular teacher across the country and around the world. Like many of us, Bryan originally thought yoga was nothing more than strange contortions, but that changed when his father introduced him to a physical style of yoga called Ashtanga. This appealed to him immediately, and he soon observed great changes in himself, both physically and mentally. Yoga quickly became his passion, one that would take him to India for a year to study with the great yoga masters of the world, Pattabhi Jois. He has been continuing on his yoga path ever since. Bryan founded and teaches at two studios in Santa Monica, CA. For articles by Bryan and more information about Power Yoga, visit www.PowerYoga.com.

COST:  $250 for all four workshops. 

HOUSING:  Housing is available at the INN AT WOODLAKE, which is in the same parking lot as YOGA ON THE LAKE. Shuttles are available from the Milwaukee & Green Bay airport (at additional cost) through www.goairportconnection.com

Go beyond the six-pack for an in-depth look at your power center & core. Connect physical & spiritual in this entirely fresh look at the core. You will sweat, discuss, create & learn new tools to take into classes & workshops!

We'll look at both the Metaphorical Core, in terms of self-empowerment, spirituality and growth, and the Physical Core, exploring the intricate relationship between physical, mental, emotional and spiritual actions and reactions within.

Your core muscles help when you need to spring into action or curl up into a protective ball. If your core is strained, stressed or untrained painful conditions including low back pain, sacroiliac pain, sciatica, disc problems, spondylolysis, scoliosis, hip degeneration, knee pain, menstruation pain, infertility, and digestive problems may occur.


By examining the Core in All Aspects and incorporating the practices of pranayama and meditation, we connect to our universal soul. Channeling breath creates cleansing, energy, expansion and awareness.

How is this training different?

Purposeful assisting rapidly accelerates understanding in yoga practice. Yet conventional assisting courses rely on primarily “corrective” adjustments (from the outside in), instead of harnessing the natural intuition of the student in the pose.

In this training, learn to co-create with students to maximize independent learning, increased coordination & muscle memory, while simultaneously promoting deep, relaxation in action (from the inside out).

Hardwire new confidence & knowledge through use of action & resistance, stability & grounding, and intensity & duration.

While traditional assists will be covered as foundation, this interactive weekend certification will unveil entirely new perspectives on yoga anatomy, physiology and non-verbal communication drawn from years of working with bodies in motion.

Learn assists for all major sequences in a power vinyasa class. Course includes instruction on working with special populations (different body types, elderly, athletes, etc).

5-Day Advanced Vinyasa Teacher Training
with Deborah Williamson
(Limited to 12 students)

"Your life is your laboratory."
Deborah Williamson

5-Day Program Format:
• Daily teaching sessions with coaching & support from Debbie & peers (YOU teach)
• Interactive Discussion with Debbie & peers
• Breakout Sessions based on participant interests / needs / passions

The focus of this 5 days is you, the yoga teacher. What's working now and where can you go from here?

Expand your definition of vinyasa - move past the repetition of static breath & flow into dynamic, natural expression & connection. Yoga is a conversation, not a script or lecture.

By letting go of right and wrong (and turning traditional yogic anatomy on its head) you'll teach and make choices with purpose, precision & ease. Inspire your students with intuitive, customized instruction delivered to suit real people of varying abilities and mindsets.

The only guideline? See yourself (and your students) as powerful, intelligent & capable of more.

Experiment with some the following techniques:

• creating breakthroughs in every class (empowerment for all)
• the art of mini-workshops: whole, part, whole (do, break down, do again)
• minimum, relevant wording / silence & space
• teaching to all (see all students, always)
• fitting the pose to the student (not the student to the pose)
• challenge in motion & challenge in stillness (how to support students in a long hold)

Additional discussion topics will be introduced based on group requests. Past groups have evaluated:

• vinyasa in the context of yin and/or restorative yoga
• moving the bones for maximum range of motion
• teaching special populations (kids, elderly, injured, athletes, etc)
• yoga personal training (one-on-one)
• hands on assisting mini-course
• special events: your first retreat or teacher training
• back bending tricks & tools (to get every body into wheel)
• the business of yoga
