About The Teacher

Denise’s yoga journey began in 2004 when she started a home practice for physical fitness. She began to have a positive shift in her perspective and attitude, which she hadn't expected. This intrigued her to and inspired her to delve deeper into her home practice and self study of yoga.

On moving to Savannah, GA, in 2010, she joined Savannah Yoga Center and really thrived in group practice. She gained so much in self realization and connection to spirit through yoga that she was compelled to take teacher training. She received her RYT 200 hr in May 2017 at Savannah Yoga Center, and shortly thereafter moved to Fayetteville, NC.

She is a military spouse, a seasoned nurse, and a mother. Yoga has helped her understand and work through the stress and chaos in life, and she feels it is her dharma to help others understand themselves and attain peace through yoga. She teaches yoga regularly at Hayat Yoga Shala in Fayetteville, NC, and is excited to lead retreats and share in adventure, relaxation, and individualized yoga practice for retreat participants.
