Yoga Classes & Workshops with Debby Siegel
As a teacher of this healing practice, ultimately Debby creates space that helps students see what is already there. Healing is a personal journey and it is an honor to be a guide that can shine some light in that direction. Come home to yourself through self-love and the growth that comes from discomfort coupled with a bit of challenge in one of her yoga classes or workshops.
Fridays | 9a-10:15a
Yoga Six St. Louis | 5724 Oakland Ave, St. Louis, MO 63110 | 314-802-7447
Vinyasa yoga is the dynamic sequencing of poses synchronized with the breath to create a continuous flow. It has been instrumental in many a student finding a mind-body connection that soothes, grounds and ultimately extends out into their lives.
You will learn something new about yourself in this 75 minute vinyasa class. You will grow, experiencing challenge and flowing through it. We will explore movement with safe structure. Your body will have ample time to rest in Savasana at the end of class and absorb all the new muscle memories.
Come find this each Friday morning at 9am in St. Louis’ Yoga Six Studio adjacent to Forest Park. Your first class is on me. Text me to grab my guest pass: 314-369-7399.

Mindful Marionettes is a 45 minute puppet show intending to share the benefits of mindfulness with kids of all ages. The show includes interactive yoga poses, singing bowl meditation, and a sing along to help everyone find that mind-body connection helpful for improving concentration and life!

This puppet show is filled with recognizable songs that’ll have mom and dad chuckling and swaying, while the kids get involved with mindfulness exercises alongside Willy and his pals. Mindful Marionettes is fun for kids of all ages. $10 / person includes a coloring sheet and crayons for each child.
If you’d like to book this puppet show for your studio, festival, school, library, club or event, contact Debby: email@example.com.

This floating yoga class will incorporate elements of vinyasa flow and breathing designed to balance you on and off a paddleboard. Expect to have fun while challenging your individual edges of flexibility, focus, strength, and balance.
Take your yoga practice to another dimension, by supplementing a paddleboard for your mat, and water for the floor. You will improve your balance and engage your core more than ever as we bring mind and body intricately together in the great outdoors. (No one will be doing their grocery list while in down dog on their paddleboard!)
So if connecting to nature and the sweet sounds of water, while soaking in some vitamin D and fine-tuning your deltoids, rotator cuffs, traps, pectoralis major, latissimus dorsi, supraspinatus, glutes, calves, quads, trapezius, low back, heart, lungs, and your abdominal muscles, sounds like an ideal night, join us at Simpson Lake. We will all be clipped onto a line across the water so no one is facing the wrong way or floating away during class.
There is a bathroom for changing, etc adjacent to the parking lot at the beach where we will launch. Bring bug repellant, a beach towel, dry clothes, water, and wear whatever you feel comfortable in. We’ll begin promptly at 6:15 with 45 minutes of centering and strengthening, and end with 45 minutes of paddling around and playing on our boards. Debby will bring a camera and capture your good side at sunset on this 72 acre lake if you wish.

Life Outside is a free festival offered by Great Rivers Greenway and Terrain Magazine June 9 at Creve Coeur Park. Several opportunities for free yoga throughout the day. Find a Yoga Buzz class in the morning and Debby of YoGoGirls will be teaching Yoga for All Athletes twice in the afternoon.
While you are there, check out many outdoor lifestyle vendors, some great local music and grab some tasty treats from one of the food trucks that will be on site.
Whether you kayak, bowl, climb, ride a bicycle, jog, or race in triathlons, yoga will help you with your sport-enhancing athletic performance, preventing injuries and increasing flexibility.
All levels and types are welcome. One reason for sports injuries: imbalances in your biomechanics. Another reason: sitting at this computer you’re reading this on or hunching over your mobile device. (You just sat up straighter!)
Practice yoga and you have a great tool for preventing injuries and for bouncing back more easily from the stressors in your sport(s) as well.
Join Debby as she outlines very accessible postures and stretches geared to assist you in enhancing your mind-body connection and calming the central nervous system. You will leave with safe tools for the life changing advantage offered in the breathwork and meditative flow of yoga.
Yoga Outside the Lines
Wanderlust Festival Stratton | Stratton Mountain, VT
June 21 – 24, 2018
Create a masterpiece using your masterpiece – your body. In this vinyasa yoga class with a paper canvas as your mat, you’ll flow with charcoal, finessing a piece of individualized artwork. Following your breath, you’ll use the motions of your body and your imagination to create a 6’x7′ piece of artwork you can take home (if you’d like).
Revisit that stage in your development when you just simply colored or drew without any critique of your art – a time prior to life’s labels. Come find that early version of you and listen to that child. That child understands magic moments. That child is still you.
We suggest wearing black and wearing your hair up, as we will use charcoal to create our yoga art. And plan to get dirty. Let’s get messy drawing outside the lines and abandon those layers of labels for 90 minutes.
December 28, 2018 – January 2, 2019
Everyone of us has a story. Your story consists of various chapters that span the course of your book… your lifetime. The chapters filled with moments ranging from elation to despair, traumatic to transformational, crazy and bizarre to status quo. Every one of them offer learning opportunities, another glimpse of you. Your stories are what make up who you think you are and it’s what determines how you show up in this world. Let’s flow and pause to write in a journal periodically in a New Year’s Day morning class that will set our intention for Delighting Shri: beauty, wealth, delight, auspiciousness, affirmation and prosperity. You are full of limitless potential. Your next chapter will prove it.
Adhirohati: To rise above. Transcend. Shed the layers of our untruths, our biases of self and others. To come together as family and support, nurture, experience, and tap into our highest possibilities. We will tap these possibilities in Costa Rica with Sarah Fuhrmann E-RYT, Josh Lynn E-RYT, Christine Kick 500 E-RYT and me at Del Pacifico Estate in Puntarenas Province, Esterillos Oeste, Costa Rica.
This large estate is comprised of 3 spacious homes next to each other, on top a hill with panoramic ocean views.
This all inclusive retreat includes 3 meals per day as well as coffee, tea, water, and juice. Gluten-Free, Vegetarian & Vegan options available. Each day of the retreat is based on the tantric yoga qualities of consciousness. These concepts invite you to fully engage with, nurture, and grow yourself and others. You will dive into the inquiry of each, daily in yoga practice, communal connection, exciting adventures, and through personal time for yourself.

Through kinetic drawing on paper canvas with charcoal, you’ll flow and move while finessing a piece of individualized artwork using your body and mind. Drawing from the soul and following your breath, you’ll use the motions of your body and your imagination to create a piece of artwork you can take home. We suggest wearing black and wearing your hair up, as we will use charcoal to create our yoga art. And plan to get dirty.
Picasso once said, “Art washes away from the soul, the dust of every day life.”
Come let your inner Picasso out to play.

Date Night Yoga: Play, Intimacy, Restoration & Cacao
with Debby Siegel & her partner, Chris Powers
Friday, February 9 | 6-8p | $44 / couple
includes a cacao treat, restorative partner poses & stretches, tantra yoga flow set to live music, and candlelight meditation
at Yoga Six St. Louis
This playful and intimate workshop designed just for couples, is the perfect date night for you and your favorite yogi. Whether you’re a couple looking to get out of that dinner & movie date night rut and in need of a fun and fresh alternative for sparking your love connection, or first time daters looking to learn more about one another, you will find a comfortable space to explore the power of playful yoga, mindfulness and cacao.
We’ll begin date night yoga with a raw cacao treat & ceremony. Raw cacao powder – called the sexual sweetener – contains phytochemicals known to affect Phenethylamine, or PEA, a compound released into the brain when we’re attracted to someone. With more than 20 times the antioxidant power of blueberries, raw cacao produces a sense of delight through increasing brain serotonin which in turn can increase sexual excitation, desire and responsiveness.
In addition to cacao, expect to practice yoga to live guitar music and take with you some key partner massaging moves and stretches you can do anywhere. Positions will be tailored to fit your level of skill and comfort.
- Strengthen the pranic currents flowing between you and your beloved while creating loving memories
- Learn and appreciate awareness in the present moment
- Increase your flexibility
- Improve your healthy body image and self-esteem
- Improve your circulation
- Find connection, trust & healing through restorative partner stretches
with Debby Siegel, RYT
Wednesdays through May 3, 6:30-7:30p
Donation Based, Vegan Treats After
Center for Divine Love | 3617 Wyoming | Tower Grove, MO 63118
Donation based series for the unconventional – the bohemian who wishes to learn more about this thing called yoga. Together we’ll breathe, center our minds, dwell in this time and place, and move our bodies in unison with our breath.
This class is suited for the person who doesn’t own the latest matching yoga wear, the one who wants to try yoga outside of the traditional yoga studio, someone who is interested in learning and improving his or her health with yoga, but feels a little like a gypsy in a sea of fembots in a studio class.
We will build poses from their simplest form to the more complex, and there will be room for every version. If your tree pose looks different from your neighbor, well that’s because it’s Boho Yoga! We are not here to be like anyone else. We are Bohemians.
So if you are that unconventional yogi who seeks to play with a basic vinyasa flow class followed up with some healthy community food, please drop in at the Center for Divine Love at 3617 Wyoming in Tower Grove and pay what you can. Cash or card.
You are perfect the way you are. There is no other you. Bring you, your mat and water. Wear some comfy clothes and gain access to the ancient wisdom of vinyasa yoga. We’ll yoga on the basement floor of this Tower Grove area church. It is called Center of Divine Love. Park in the church’s parking lot to the west of the building and come in that side door.
Defy Gravity with a YoGoGirls Inversions Game Plan
with Debby Siegel and Michelle Thomas
Sunday, December 11, 2016 | 3:00p-5:00p
$45 includes workshop, homework video, and photos
Consuming Kinetics Dance Company (in the CWE) | 460 Whittier St, St. Louis, MO 63108
Want to experience the joy of being upside down? Join inversion enthusiasts Debby & Michelle of YoGoGirls for this inversions workshop mastering invigorating yoga poses such as headstand, forearm stand and handstand. We will safely build these poses from their foundations up in order to gain confidence and dispel the fears associated with practicing inverted poses.
Inversions can be empowering postures that teach us not only about our inner strength, but about our playfulness, courage, and our ability to create lightness and space. They help our circulatory system, our lymphatic system, energize us and even help our immune system. So let’s make them happen!
We’ll discuss anatomically what needs to happen in the shoulder girdle, core and bandhas for you to defy gravity and get your heart above your head. We’ll share our stories of how we developed the strength and confidence to attempt these more challenging poses. We’ll provide you with homework in video form so that you may continue your inversion practice after the workshop. And of course, we will take some success photos at the end of this 2 hour workshop.
This workshop is best suited for those with a regular yoga practice of all-levels. A willingness to fall 3 times and get back up 4 is key. We ask that if you have any neck and/or head injuries, high blood pressure or eye problems like glaucoma that you not register for this workshop.
