Mutha Lovin' Class
with Deborah O' Brien

and live music of Terri Catlin

This 2 hour class with one of Red Pearl's all-time favorite teachers will send us on a unique  journey through our bodies to free the breath. Taking us back to the first moment at birth when we took a breath --that moment that our mother gave us to the world and we became our very own source of prana.

We'll begin our practice with supported yin postures to drop into our breath followed by an exploration of similar shapes in a gentle flow.  Variation will be encouraged to find your unique shapes no matter your level of experience.  We'll end with a cool down to calm the nervous system and sooth the soul while Deb sings to you in Sivasana. Local artist Teri Catlin will be accompanying Deb throughout the class.


They say it takes a village to raise a family.... come be part of ours.

$35 per person... or sign up with a friend and it's $60(save $5 each).

pay online registration here!  You may also reserve a spot by paying at our desk.


About Deb:  After having an emotional breakthrough in a restorative yoga class at Red Pearl Yoga, Deb began to explore how yoga might serve as a coping and healing mechanism for past traumas. This led to a more regular practice and in 2008 Deb completed her first Yoga 200hr RYT with Yoga Fox Vinyasa at Red Pearl Yoga. Red Pearl Owner, Karen Gavrilov became her personal and profesional mentor and gave Deb her first teaching opportunity. 

Since her first glimpse of the peace she might find through yoga, Deb has dedicated her time to exploring a yogic path by imersing herself with a variety of yoga styles and master teachers including; Edward Clark with Tripsichore Yoga Theatre, Ricky Tran, Doug Keller and Terri Cooper with Yoga Gansters. In 2011 Deborah was honored to produce a tour for Tripsichore Yoga Theatre and went on to complete a 160hr Tripsichore Intensive in London. 

In 2012 she relocated to manage the regional sales team at MINDBODY Online in East Hampton, NY and began to study regularly with Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee at Colleen's Sag Harbor, NY studio Yoga Shanti.  Under their tutialage she's completed a 300hr RYT, 100hr Advanced Teacher Training, assisted mentoring in their teacher trainining programs and assists them with public events such as Yoga Journal and Solstice in Time Square.  Rodney and Colleen have challenged her to find equanimity and containment in her practice and teaching.  

To date, Deb has over 1000 hrs of yogic studies and believes "to teach, one must continue to study." Deb has a knack for teaching truly for all levels with a fun loving style and a focus on finding YOUR practice. She loves to look at a task that seems impossible and deconstruct it till there is some aspect that is accessible to practice, any amount. Just ask Karen G how we did our expansion at Red Pearl Yoga!(Deb was our project manager)

Reservation/Cancellation/Refund Policy for Events & Workshops (held at studio)

You must pre-pay in full to reserve your spot; reservations will not be taken without payment.

Cancellations will be accepted up to 14 days cartoon porn prior to the workshop for a full refund less 10%.  No refunds or credits after that --with the following exception-- the event sells out and we can fill your spot, in which case you will receive the amount you paid less 20%.

Wondering why we don't give full refunds closer to the date?
Simple. If we stop selling spots, in order to hold your place, and then you don't attend,  that is lost income because we have turned away another attendee in order to honor our commitment to you. Our presenters have costs and minimums that we must cover in order to host them  and those expenses are bullt into the pricing and attendance level of each event.
If you are traveling to be with us, please carefully consider booking refundable flights and hotel rooms, as we do not cover those in the event you cannot come, or the very, very rare event that the presenter cancels an event.
