More About Debbie

Debbie Vojik is a life-long Baltimore resident. She studied nursing at The University of Maryland at Baltimore, and has been a practicing nurse since 1993. Her clinical specialty is Neonatal/Pediatric Intensive care, with intensive work at all levels of ICU care. Debbie began practicing yoga consistently in 1999.

She took her first hot yoga class on August 28, 2005 and was immediately sold on the practice. She signed up for the intro week special and attended class everyday that week. She was astounded  by the physical changes, internal and external, that were occurring and wanted to be able to share this with as many people as possible. She saw the potential benefits as endless in a population where we tend to be more reactive than proactive.

By the end of the first month doing this yoga she knew she needed to teach this transforming practice. After graduating from teacher training in 2006, she began teaching part time, while continuing her full time job as a registered nurse in the insurance industry.

Teaching yoga provided Debbie with a way to give back to the world. She felt the need to contribute to the wellbeing of humanity and she knew that teaching this yoga would be her vehicle. Over the past nine years of teaching this transforming practice she has noticed so many changes in those she teaches, as well as herself. She is truly happy when she is sharing this practice with others and is able to help them to see the possibilities the practice avails, and ultimately to achieve their individual optimum well being, be it physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual.

After years of teaching for others, she felt ready to embark on the adventure of being a studio owner and director, and opened Baltimore Hot Yoga & Wellness (formerly Bikram Yoga Mid Atlantic) in 2012.

Debbie continues her commitment to growing as a teacher and building community. Since opening BY, Debbie received her Masters in Yoga Therapy from Maryland University of Integrative Health and was Certified by the International Association of Yoga Therapists. Debbie is also a continuing education provider through yoga alliance (YACEP) and offers monthly workshops on a variety of topics at the studio.

In her spare time Debbie enjoys spending time with her husband Doug, gardening, and playing with her dogs Phoebe, Phelps, and Oliver.
