Denise's interest in Yoga evolved while attending Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL where she was practicing environmental and religious studies. It was through a book on the connections between Hinduism and ecology that a passion was sparked for discovering the Goddess and honoring Nature through inner transformation and sacred reciprocity. This craving for inner freedom and Union with the Divine is what fuels her developing practice and inspires her to share with others. Drawing from a variety of styles/flows, her classes will explore new themes & sequences each week, amidst a diverse & eclectic soundscape. As a graduate of AYC's 200-hour teacher training, Denise is excited to take her studies deeper and experience the transformative power of Yoga with the community.

*Recommended for Beginners
Gentle indicates the class is not vigorous, but slow and soothing, perfect for those wanting a more relaxed and softer practice. Also excellent for beginners, the elderly, and pregnant women.
Power indicates a vigorous practice that will challenge and energize you with its focus on building strength and concentration as you flow through powerful, flowing sequences. This type of class is meant to challenge you and your existing practice, make you sweat, have some fun, and try and inversion (or three!). Not recommended for beginners who do not have a basic knowledge of yoga postures.
Warm classes allow the body’s tissues to soften more deeply, as the room is kept between 80-89 degrees.
Hot classes involve a dynamic and challenging practice in a room heated to 90 degrees or above. You will sweat, so please bring your own mat, water bottle, and towel. First time students are discouraged from attending HOT classes, as they tend to be fast-paced, and are meant for those already familiar with basic postures.
