Debby Fries

After a stressful 25 year career in advertising Debby’s life took a 360 degree turn when she decided to take Teacher Training at Yogaview. Studying under Quinn Kearney, Claire Mark and Tom Quinn she completed her 200hr. training and has been teaching ever since- enjoying the calm and flexibility it has brought to her life.
Her goal is to create a life she doesn’t need a vacation from and yoga is a huge part of keeping her grateful and present. She loves to teach a strong vinyasa flow set to contemporary music stimulating both body and soul with playlists that range from Chill Out Yogi to Marvin Gaye to The Churches. With her athletic background you can expect some adventurous transitions, a touch of Pilates and lots of hip and hamstring openers. Every class begins and ends with breath work, intention and calm adding a nice bookend to vigorous flow.
Born and raised in Chicago, she’s a good resource on the best Italian restaurants, a good beach, free live music and rooftop happy hours…just a few of her favorite things.
