Meet Deborah Thurley

Founder of A Mindful Practice


“Meditation and yoga have been the bedrock for my wellbeing and happiness.  Juggling family commitments (traveling husband, three children, dogs, cats and a horse) and teaching is wonderful and great fun, but it can be exhausting keeping all those balls in the air! 

The meditation techniques I use keep me centered, balanced and calm in the middle of an often hectic life.   Meditation and Yoga have helped me get really clear on who I am, what I stand for, and why I am on the planet.  To truly know what my purpose is has been a profound revelation for me, and this is the beacon that I move toward every single day.  The happiness, peace and enthusiasm that I wake up with is an affirmation that I am on the right track.

So now I am following my passion, sharing and teaching what I have learned for myself:  How to create a life of your choosing; a life of great value; a life filled with love, happiness, peace, joy and appreciation.  Authoring your life through mindful practice is incredibly powerful, inspiring and wonder-full.  I hope you will join me and discover for yourself.”
