Meet One of Minnesota's Most Inspirational Instructors - Deb Preachuk!

Every so often I like to highlight Yoga and Pilates instructors that have made a huge impact in their community, and this time I'd like to recognize Deb Preachuk!

Deb Preachuk

Deb Preachuk is the owner of Pilates Integration Mind.Body.Spirit. and Pain Free Posture in Minnesota. With over 20 years of mind/body, group fitness and personal training experience, Deb’s passion is helping students restore optimal health and function to their bodies at any age.

Her teaching passion is working with chronic pain, injuries and special populations, specializing in restorative Pilates and posture alignment therapy.

A former Instructor Trainer for The Pink Ribbon Program teaching post-rehabilitative breast cancer exercise, Deb has recently spent a great deal of time volunteer teaching for breast and lung cancer survivors. Her most recent pursuit is writing a feature article on Pilates for Golfers in the Minnesota Tee Times, and accepting a position with the Dakota County Technical College as an Adjunct Instructor, teaching the American Council on Exercise Group Fitness Theory and Practical course this fall.

Here are some photos from the Minnesota Tee Times "Pilates for Golfers" article:

In addition to private instruction at her Lakeville, MN studio, Deb regularly teaches mind/body and group fitness classes for Life Time Fitness (Eagan, Lakeville, Savage and 98th Street) where she is an accredited 5-Star Instructor.

This past year, YogaDirect helped Deb and her studio celebrate National Pilates Day by sending out Yoga Balls, straps, and more as gifts to participants in her event.

Keep up the good work, Deb, and thanks again for all that you do!
