Denise | Yoga Instructor

Denise unrolled her first yoga mat over 10 years ago at a local gym to compliment her fitness routine. After her first Power Yoga class, she was hooked. As her practice developed, she enjoyed the benefits of various intense styles of yoga. Her journey with yoga, suddenly took a sharp turn with a cancer diagnosis in 2008. She began to explore different styles of yoga and other healing modalities to cope with stress and anxiety. She has since developed an interest in gentle and restorative yoga styles and the desire to share her healing journey with others.

In 2011, she completed a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training program at Yogaspace. She studied Hatha Yoga with Patricia White in the tradition of Vanda Scaravelli, consciously balancing effort and rest. She also studied Vinyasa Yoga with Kathryn Beet, focusing on finding ease in movement with the breath. Since then, she has completed a Restorative Yoga Certificate with Hali Schwartz, Yin Yoga with Cathy Kennan and Reiki Master Certificate with Stephanie Norwich. Contrary to popular belief, Yoga is not the practice of being flexible, it is the practice of uniting the mind and the body. It teaches us to be present, to connect with our own thoughts and to realize our own potential. As a student, she is always amazed at how her yoga practice has strengthened her body and provided clarity of mind. She hopes to inspire her students to find that strength, stability and focus.
