It was a great experience learning mindfulness with Deborah, as it was my very first experience with mindfulness and I was surprised on how easy it was and how she had meticulously guided me though the process progressively. The stories she shared were simple yet they resonated very well with the different situations that people face in their daily lives. The classes were very focused and it helped me to develop a set of guideposts towards my personal wellbeing and how to deal mindfully with negative emotions, like anger, anxiety and disappointments. What I enjoyed most at the end of the lessons with her is to be able create the calming visual interludes in my mind to clear my seemingly innocent stream of consciousness that contains negative thoughts lurking in it, when I am dealing with difficult situations. Last of all, she inspired me to connect with a much kinder and wiser self through mindfulness. Thank you Deborah, with gratitude, – Cadence Lim
I have attended Deborah’s mindfulnesscourse twice and the second time was even more inspiring than the first.It refreshed my mind on the simple yet brilliant techniques you can adopt in every day life to make the most of each day and to be as happy and positive a person as possible.Deborah also teaches how to respond when life throws the inevitable googly our way.Deborah’s calm, happy and caring demeanour is infectious and you leave each class feeling calmer, happier and more in control.Thank you Deborah…I’ll be back. – Rosie Thompson
Entering into a mindfulness course taken by Deborah Thurley, not only did I meet one of the most gentle and warmest ladies in my journey of life, but I also learnt how to take charge of my life and be more positive which leads to happiness. Deborah taught us some techniques to be able to bring us to this stage; they are simple and enjoyable. I would urge anyone to take this course to learn these life skills to help in everyday situations and help with your relationships and choices in life. I would like to say a big thank you to Deborah for the enlightenment that the course has given me. – Amanda Buckland-McGowan
I use the techniques often and am finding myself much calmer particularly in stressful situations and have found it incredibly helpful. – Jennie Hughes
Before I started this course I read the testimonials and was a bit skeptical. I thought Deborah CAN’T be that good? But now I’ve done the course I know that she really IS that good. If you want a happier life, now, take this course and you’ll be on your way. Enjoy! – Fran Boyd
It has taken me a couple of days to write this as I’m still digesting all your wonderful words and thoughts, but thank you for the brilliant sessions over these past two weeks. I got more, over and above, what I was hoping to to get from the course. I’ve been taking little steps along a breathing / energy / meditation / mindfulness journey for the past year or so and your course has been the perfect next step. Actually one of the best things was realising that I have been moving in the ‘right’ direction on my own all this time but to be able to understand and put my own thoughts into context and a framework has been really helpful. I’m thrilled with having learnt the actual mindfulness techniques too, and am finding them enormously helpful, especially the gratitude technique which has made getting up every morning a truly joyful process as opposed to the tired, niggly start to the day that it was. – Selena
It all started 6 months ago and I can say with all my heart that these courses have truly been a life changer to me. Since then, my level of happiness has deepened and spread, I feel more grounded, grateful and in peace. Everyday, I religiously spare time to meditate and it allows me to start the day with a smile. I feel that happiness is progressively hardwiring in my brain and sense its positive impact in my life. I’m very grateful the Universe put Deborah on my path. I immediately felt connected to her thanks to her good vibes and kindness. Not only that, I find Deborah very knowledgeable on the subject. She is a very talented teacher. Thank you Deborah. – Juliette Genillard

Deborah Thurley’s mindfulness techniques are a divine blend of her gentle, thoughtful voice, warm smile, and simple instruction that encourage a beautiful, well deserved awareness of oneself. Her classes are always infused with just enough variety to keep one alert and interested. Deb has worked with our Camp Magic crews now for the past three programs. All the facilitators look forward to a time when they can sit with Deb and be treated to an hour of calm breath, that wonderful voice, and encouraging smiles. – Katherine McLeod, Creative Director of Camp Magic
Deb was a wonderful teacher for mindfulness. Welcoming and warm, genuine and very giving. She helped me understand how the subconscious mind influences the way I see the world. It has genuinely changed the way I see things. I now can take steps to understanding my feelings, reactions and their causes and be the mahout. With the tools she gave me I can work towards being more empathetic, grateful. – Linden Furnell, singer-songwriter, actor, dancer
Deborah is one of the warmest people I know. Her love for humanity and care for the individual is present in her smile, sound of her voice and sparkle in her eyes. She sees you. Time slows down. She is here and now. She shares her wisdom and you feel you have always known it, known her. – Carina and Bill Hickling
Deborah creates an extremely safe environment in which to practice yoga from beginner level to advanced. Her clear language, intelligent modifications and deep knowledge of anatomy and physiology mean that you can move through the class being able to adapt to your body’s level with each exercise, with complete trust. Her warm and generous disposition add to the nurturing environment she creates and, with her calming and gentle voice leading you through the meditation, you leave the class feeling very relaxed, focussed and spiritually uplifted. – Kelly Brimblecombe
I shall always remember my first lesson with Deborah! She made it simple for me to follow the yoga steps (despite being nervous) as she seemed to follow you instead. She is so gentle in her ways and subtle in her manner, and so talented in her technical skill of teaching that it is a surprise that you ache the next day and that you actually got a workout – from the core (not to mention the heart!). I feel safe because Deborah is an amalgamation of skill, wisdom and humility, and she is so genuine that I leave strong and ready to face the real world! I am so grateful our paths have crossed.

I can highly recommend working with Deborah. Her clear explanations and gentle directions will help focus you to achieve your goals. She has a very positive, inspiring energy which is both encouraging and motivational.
– Katherine Perry, Head of Year, Australian School
Deborah positively sparkles with positive energy. The first time I met her I thought to myself that I wanted some of whatever she is having! Part of that is her yoga. I came away from each session feeling lighter and brighter as well as becoming physically stronger and mentally calmer. During the classes, Deborah encourages students to take things at their own pace but at the same time pushes them within their limits to safely get the most out of each exercise.

Weekly yoga with Deborah was my special time of the week – time to relax and focus in a beautifully serene environment. Deborah very gently and subtly taught us yoga techniques that increased our flexibility, suppleness and strength of body and soul. Her yoga knowledge and ability to pass it on was excellent. Having left Singapore it is one of the main things I miss. I highly recommend Deborah.
– Sarah Denholm
Deb Thurley does yoga differently. From the moment you arrive you feel transported into another space. Her space becomes your space. She has a natural ability to make you feel loved, safe and free. Her classes are gentle. Her meditations are relaxing, freeing your mind from the daily stresses of life. Each time I attend I leave feeling like everything will be ok!
