I had no intention of being a coach. I was working as a Chef for the Taj Group of Hotels, and I loved my work – fulfilling and fun! And cooking was my thing. Then everything changed. In September 1999, I met with a car accident in Bangalore. I had fallen asleep at the wheel and ran over a man in daylight. Providence came to my rescue. The man was safe, not a scratch. But, before I fell asleep, I got a thought, ‘Stop the car, call Debu!’ I rationalised using my logical mind that I would make that call when I saw a phone booth. Little did I know that I was being warned about danger ahead.

One of our greatest barriers to personal and professional connection and partnership, is the lack of space for created empathy. Traditional trainings for a "safe" workplace may inform us of "what not to do," but fail because they do not have us develop a mindset of inclusion. Additionally, we have no real training in how to have successful relationships, so we bounce around, making mistake after mistake, and never quite get it right. My programs solve this problem by developing a beingness that is focused on partnership and community for organizations, couples and individuals. We are in relationship to everyone and everything; When we approach relationship from the perspective of partnership, things tend to work much better.

As a Broadway dancer turned Tao Minister and fitness expert, I have spent decades of my life being aware of my body as a form of expression and a way of life. Chances are, if I’m training someone, they’re aware of their own bodies too, (mainly because they feel the authority of their own strength!). But what happens outside the gym, in the rest of our lives, is that we forget about our bodies. We slouch, we strain, collapse, compress—often without even realizing it—and as a result, we become filled with tension, and unable to either relax or tap our strength.
