Deborah Raoult Master Classes

About Deborah

Continuum Movement teacher Deborah Raoult is dedicated to liberating the innate wisdom of the Body. She has been passionately immersed in the practice, teaching and integration of yoga, somatic movement and meditation for over three decades. Deborah explores the dynamics of breath and motion as gateways to awakening, communication and compassion. 


Her teaching offers a way to heal and transform our relationship to body, community and Nature. In her Continuum Movement workshops she weaves the autonomy of self exploration with the dynamics of group inquiry through the Way of Council. Her unique understanding of the metaphors of conception, gestation, birth and renewal has been developed through practice and teaching women at the transformative thresholds of pregnancy, early mothering and menopause.


Invited in as a Continuum teacher in 2000, she has both assisted and co-taught with Continuum founder and developers Emilie Conrad and Susan Harper. 


A certified Practitioner of Body-Mind Centering movement education, her training in yoga has been in the Iyengar tradition with senior teachers and the Iyengar family in Pune, India. Deborah co-founded the yoga and movement center, Open Sky, in upstate New York. In addition, she has taught at the Yoga Journal Conference in Estes Park, Colorado on Fluid Movement and Yoga and been a frequent presenter at the internationally reknowned SOMAfest in Los Angeles.


After raising three children, Deborah now teaches in the greater Los Angeles area,. She spends as much time as she can with her horses in the high desert. Her personal practice and teaching continues to expand and be refined through horses’ teaching on uplifted energy and Wild Beauty.
