Denise’s way of instructing is direct, clear, and inspiring. It is her desire that every student feels seen and understood. She is passionate about teaching others to feel all emotions, lean into them, and use their poses to move through them in away that is compassionate. Yoga taught her how to feel her own worth and reverse habits that lead to the feeling of being “walked on”.
