Denise is a a certified Iyengar yoga instructor and registered with Yoga Alliance at the RYT 200 level. Denise began her yoga practice in the early 80's and soon realized the benefits of a consistent practice on the mind, body & spirit. As a practicing attorney everyday stress soon became the norm and yoga was her quiet respite from the demands of a busy career. Her practice for the past 20 years has been in the Iyengar tradition. Over the last 10 years, Denise has taught private classes and workshops and in 2013 she made the commitment to teach 3 classes per week and immediately realized the joy of the classroom. Denise has studied with many senior Iyengar teachers over the last 20 years, including studies at the Iyengar Institute in Pune, India with the Iyengars. However, her primary teacher is John Schumacher to whom she remains grateful for opening her heart and mind to the importance of a strong foundation upon which to build a yoga practice.
