Certification Governing Council

Debi Testa


Movement has been both Debi’s life and my life’s work.She have been teaching (dance and yoga) and running her own businesses for over 40 years. Her definition of movement includes both external and internal, so energy work has always resonated strongly with her. Having gone through many short (weekend) energy work training classes, she knew there had to be more. She was hungry for a deeper, comprehensive, evidence based system and is grateful to have found Dr. Stone’s work, a complete holistic practice.

Debi completed her RPP in 1999, has been a member af APTA for over 20 years, and was among the first to be Grandfathered in with the  BCPP title.

She is also a Bach Foundation Registered Practitioner and Certified Bach Basics Teacher.
