Meet Deborah Thurley

Founder of A Mindful Practice


“Mindfulness, meditation and yoga have been the bedrock for my wellbeing and happiness.  The mindfulness techniques I use keep me centred, balanced and calm in the middle of an often hectic life.   To deeply 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 wonderful.  I hope you will join me and discover for yourself.”

“Deborah studied meditation with me using discipline and dedication.  She shone as a student, and made me proud as her teacher.  Now, as a meditation teacher herself, she brings her vast experience in meditation together with her love and support to her students in abundant measure.  Deborah is a wonderful teacher and I am certain she will enlighten many minds with happiness and joy! – Vikas Malkani, Founder of SoulCentre.
