Discovering the teachings of Beryl Bender Birch, famous author of Power Yoga and Beyond Power Yoga, Denese was awestruck. Denese has been an avid cyclist and NYC marathon runner for many years. Finding yoga as she puts it was the most profound gift she has ever received, and because of that she enjoys teaching and sharing the joys of yoga with her students / friends. She has practiced traditional yoga methods from Sri T. Krishnamacharya and Guruji Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. It’s Denese’s beloved relationship with her Ashtanga practice that gives her the innate power to create yoga communities wherever she teaches. Students are drawn to her innate ability to simplify the roots of the yoga practice.
Denese has led workshops and retreats in NYC, Italy, and Goa, India. She engages in philanthropic causes such as SaluteTheChildren.org, using the power of yoga to inspire fundraising efforts for vulnerable children with her annual 108 Sun Salute Challenge.
