Certified Yoga Instructor
Hometown: Labrador City, NL
Denise and her family made Fort McMurray their home in 2009. She moved from Dartmouth,Nova Scotia where she had previously been employed as a professional firefighter for 22 years. Her Yoga journey began in 2010 when a close friend brought her to a hot yoga class in Whistler,B.C and from that moment on she was hooked.
Her love of yoga continued to grow as she continued her practice at Moksha and in 2013 decided to expand her yoga knowledge by taking her 200HR Teacher Training through SOYA. Under the direction of Mugs MacConnell and Helen Mikuska a spiritual connection began and a new love of yoga was born.
What started off as a physical practice became so much more,connecting body,spirit,and mind. Healing past injuries both physical and emotional,Denise is now passionate about bringing yoga to all who wish to practice. Emphasis on proper alignment ,form before depth,and self-acceptance are key to her practice and classes.
