Debbie Bhowmik

"I am Debbie Bhowmik, London based Yoga teacher - founder of J.O.Y - The Joy Of Yoga. I started practicing yoga in 2005 to aid the recovery from an operation where a disc was removed from my lower back and as a result of the assisted healing process I instantly fell in love with all aspects of yoga. As a consequence, in 2015 I chose to pursue my studies and understanding of yoga, travelling to Rishikesh, India where I successfully completed a 200 hour Yoga Teaching Training course with Suddha Ananda Yogshala. I continue travelling to India several times a year to study with Pranam Yoga Joseph.
