An Oklahoma native, Willis has made cities such as New York and Las Vegas his home, performing as a dancer at the Metropolitan Opera and Cirque du Soleil. Through the stressful and sometimes painful life as a dancer, Willis found yoga to be the most beneficial compliment, both mentally and physically, to dance. His relationship with yoga has since deepened throughout his years of practice.

I love guest teaching with Yoga Maya! The group of students is always so eager to learn, friendly, and by the time they visit me, which is towards the end of the training, they have learned SO much! Debbie's committment and authentic love for training teachers shows through beautifully in the students she trains. A great addition to the Sayu yoga community.

I recently finished a 200 hour YTT with Debbie of Yoga Maya in Sayulita and I can easily say it was one of the best experiences of my life! Debbie is a gem of a person and an amazing teacher. She has a beautiful spirit that shines through her teachings. Her YTT was well organized and prepared, covered a wide range of material, gave us lots of handsome teaching experience and challenging (in a good, healthy way!). I'd recommend Debbie and her YTT to anyone :)
