Dena Kahn

Dena is trained in Kripalu Yoga, completing her 200 hour and a portion of her 500 hour trainings at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health under the guidance of Priti Robyn Ross, Devarshi Steven Hartman, Sudha Carolyn Lundeen, and other expert Kripalu teachers. In addition, Dena is certified in Curvy Yoga through Anna Guest Jelley. Although currently focused on adults, Dena spent several years teaching teens and elementary school children yoga and meditation. She continues to learn through extended workshops and trainings from her Kripalu teachers and others. Dena has been practicing yoga for over 10 years and teaching for 6 years. She teaches slower paced classes that focus on breath awareness, building strength, and increasing stability and mobility. Her teaching is guided by the beliefs that yoga connects you with your own innate wisdom, provides exceptional practices for living a full and happy life, and is accessible for every kind of body. Dena's classes are both inviting for new students and satisfying for experienced practitioners. Dena lives a short-walk from the studio with her husband, twin daughters, dog, and cats.

Dena Kahn instructs the following:
  • Hatha Yoga I/II and Meditation
  • This class is intended for anyone interested in cultivating mind-body awareness in a supportive setting. Experienced and new practitioners will be guided through centering, breath work, warm ups, classical postures, meditation, and rest. In addition, each class will offer elements of Yoga philosophies, Ayurvedic principles, and/or mindful living. The pace of the class allows time for personalized modifications, teacher assistance, and full experience of the postures.

    The studio temperature will be adjusted depending on outside weather conditions to suit the comfort level of students and to optimize the benefits of the practice. 

  • Gentle Yoga and Meditation
  • This class is intended for those seeking to build a relationship between the physical practice of yoga postures and the practice of seated meditation. The class is typically book-ended by meditation with about 30-40 minutes of movement in the middle. The meditations are usually breath-focused or gently guided mindfulness meditations. The closing sit (meditation) is longer than the opening meditation. The movement period incorporates warm ups and classical postures targeting the building of strength, stability, balance, and mobility. This class is welcoming of practitioners dealing with prior or current injury, persistent joint pain, osteoporosis, blood pressure management, asthma and any other related conditions. The pace of the class is slow and provides time for personalized modifications and teacher assistance.
