Join Debbie Dixon Life Coach, inspirational speaker, yoga teacher and Author of “The Path to Freedom Your guide to living the life of your dreams” An avid yogi who stumbled into her first yoga class in 1997. 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 eventually her passion expanded into Hatha, Kundalini and Yin yoga. Nine years ago she taught her first yoga class and shortly after she opened (Seven Hot Yoga) a studio/community she owned and ran for over four years.

She Has been holding “Realizing your Dreams” workshops and seminars for over 12 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.

Her ultimate goal is to offer a guide out of the mundane cycle of waking up, working, going to bed and into a passion driven, purpose filled life where wishes are granted instantly, prayers are answered and love, light, peace and happiness exist in every breath. She provides an easy to use instruction manual for creating a life where you are no longer an observer of the life of your dreams but, a participant.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration is a desire to gain a deeper connection to and understanding of myself, something that I've been working hard on for so long and will continue to do in the future. I view a retreat as a wonderful way to focus entirely on this without the distractions of every day life! Nicola

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health.
