Denise was the first to bring Aerial Yoga to St Pete, over 21 years ago. She also managed the longest, continuous running studio in St Pete, Yoga Moves. Her Aerial Yoga classes combine traditional Yoga methodology and the alignment principles of Iyengar. She designs her classes so the swing is a prop, which makes it possible for all levels to experience fun and ease in a yoga practice. Classes are designed to modify the postures using the support of the swing. Her expertise as a Massage Therapist certainly brings a knowledge to her classes that helps students understand yoga positioning.
