Denise studied Vinyasa yoga for five years and then found her calling in the style of Forrest Yoga. She completed her training in Forrest Yoga in 2005 with founder Ana Forrest. She continues to study with Ana Forrest and assists her nationally at workshops and teacher trainings. Denise also completed the Ma Yoga Prenatal training with Mia Borgatta and Dr. Eden Fromberg in 2008.
In 2010 Denise partnered up with Kate Lubensky to create Yoga for Breast Cancer, a DVD created to address the needs of breast cancer battlers and survivors. It was so well received that they recently produced two more DVD’s entitled Gentle Yoga for Cancer and Yoga for Heart Health.
Denise draws from her strong sense of intuition and passion for hands-on healing. She has a knack for reading the energy of students and responding to what they need. Denise’s way of instructing is direct, clear, and inspiring. It is her desire that every student feels seen and understood.

About Forrest Yoga
Created by Ana Forrest over 30 years ago, Forrest Yoga is a practice designed to free up physical and emotional blocks in the body. Pose modifications are given to suit all levels of students. Forrest Yoga teaches you how to build strength safely, work with injuries, and connect more fully to your breath.
What to expect: The first 20-30 minutes of class focuses on opening tight spots, abdominal work, and strength building poses. Then you will build internal heat by learning to ride your breath through sun salutations and long held standing poses. Apex poses may include: arm balances, inversions, back bends, and deep hip openers (modifications are always given).
