Denise was able to heal many aspects of her life through her yoga practice. During her 200hr Hot Yoga training in 2011, she decided to take a leap of faith and leave the career path she had been on to pursue her teaching, in hopes of spreading the positive message yoga carries. Because she had begun her yoga journey at Blissful Spirits she was pleased to receive a position teaching for Melanie St. Georges. Since then she has been trained in Level II/III asana by both The Barkan Method and The Yoga Joints Empowermovement Advanced Yoga teacher trainings.
After patiently spending several years growing her knowledge as a student and an instructor, while expanding her family, Denise was ready to take her teaching career to the next place. In 2017 Denise and Melanie ventured into co creating their own teaching style. Blissful Spirits Teacher Training was created in hopes of encompassing the many different styles and approaches to yoga that Blissful Spirits Hot yoga has to offer. Denise also desired tocontinue her dream of being a traveling yoga instructor and decided to begin her venture into hosting yoga retreats beginning in Costa Rica.
Denise also values the ability to give back to her community through yoga. Through her relationship with Blissful Spirits she has been able to partner with many teachers and studios in the Albuquerque area coordinating yoga festivals and yogathons to help raise awareness and funds for many organizations aiding both children and adults in need.
Recently Denise was named Abq the Magazines 2017’s “Best Yoga Instructor”. Although Denise is still just as much a student today as she was the moment she began her journey as an instructor she is eager to share the knowledge she does have with her students at Blissful Spirits both in her group classes and Teacher Trainings. While she enjoys many styles of yoga, you can catch her practicing and teaching hot vinyasa any given day of the week. Feel free to join her for a fun filled flow.
