Mindset Matters: Interview with Deborah Ruddy
In the latest installment of Mindset Matters, Rachel is joined by Deborah Ruddy, a Registered Yoga Alliance Yoga Instructor and a qualified Anti-Gravity Aerial Yoga Instructor, to discuss the importance behind finding the balance between mind, body, and spirit.
Before entering the fitness industry, Deborah worked in the corporate world in both retail and finance. She's no stranger to high-stress jobs and environments. It was these experiences that led Deborah to create Lila Fitness, which strives to recharge her clients by bringing balance to their mind, body, and spirit.
