Om Sweet Om Yoga

Port Washington, NY 11050


Deborah Corsitto fell deeply in love with the practice of yoga in 2004, following the birth of her third child, and fell deeply in love with teaching yoga in 2009, when enrolled in Om Sweet Om’s 200-hour teacher training program. Since then, Deborah has maintained a consistent, near-daily practice in the Ashtanga yoga tradition while continuing to teach, study and enjoy the benefits of restorative and vinyasa styles of practice.
Deborah is currently pursuing her 500-hour teaching certification with Cora Wen of Yoga Bloom with an emphasis on yoga therapeutics and has recently completed an intensive 40-hour training in the primary series of Ashtanga yoga with yogi master David Swenson.
Deborah offers challenging yet nurturing flow classes, where students are invited to explore perceived limits, both physically and mentally, and safely move past them. Students credit her lighthearted, unpressured approach and gentle encouragement with making her classes fun, empowering and uplifting, steeped in tradition, but sweetened with fun. She is forever grateful to her primary teachers, Lisa Bondy, Gail Grossman and Sara Intonato, and most profoundly thankful for the life, legacy and teachings of her guru, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.


Deborah instructs the following:
  • Deep Yoga Playtime (for experienced yogis)
  • For students with six months or more of yoga experience. An opportunity to explore deepening your practice in a friendly, pressure-free, safe and supportive environment. Balance, flexibility and strength will all be explored and challenged. Practice with the teacher, explore your limits, and have fun!

  • Restorative
  • For students of all levels; a soothing series of rejuvenating poses.

  • Open
  • This class is for experienced beginners who wish to take their practice to the next level. Vinyasa Flow level one classes include the basics of a flow class, which is a dynamic practice that focuses on combining movement with breath control - an energizing and invigorating yogic experience.
    This class is appropriate for all levels of yoga students who have some experience with yoga. The instructor will offer modifications for newer students as well as more challenging poses for advanced students. (not recommended for pure beginners)

  • Quick Fix (Open level-Intermediate)
  • Get your yoga fix quick! An invigorating, centering, sixty minute flow class open to all levels of experience and ability.

  • Inversions & Arm Balances
  • Arm balances, headstands and handstands…oh my! Whether you’re an experienced yoga practitioner or a novice, learning to find balance and stillness on anything other than your feet can be daunting. Luckily, there are many tools and tricks to moving past fear and into your own limitless possibility, and this workshop is designed for ANYONE hoping to take their practice to that next level. In a friendly, inclusive and SAFE atmosphere, we’ll take baby steps (and maybe a giant leap or two) out of our personal comfort zones and explore how to fly. Om Sweet Om’s own Deborah Corsitto, E-RYT 500, will be offering plenty of tips and tricks to make the seemingly impossible become possible, as well as lots of support and encouragement so that students can truly tap into the power and elation such breakthrough postures can bring about.
