Denine took her first Bikram Yoga class in 2008 and knew instantly that she had found something special.
Previously, she had worked out in gyms, taken group fitness classes, tried other yogas, and even run a couple of half marathons but had never found anything that intrigued and challenged her like this class. She was almost instantly hooked and couldn't wait to get back in the hot room as soon as possible. Nothing had exhausted Denine like this yet energized her at the same time. Soon she saw other side effects: 20 pounds melted off in 2 months, she slept very deeply, and seemed to need less sleep. She began to crave healthier foods, less junk and more water..... lots of water ...
Most importantly, beside all the health benefits, is the deep feeling of relaxation you feel after the class. The cleansing of the mind and body.
It seemed a natural step to share her love of the yoga by becoming a teacher in Spring 2011. Denine continues to learn more about her own practice through teaching and hopes to share her love of Bikram Yoga with everyone. How this yoga can change your body, your mind, and your life is amazing. She loves seeing her students’ bodies change and the joy on their faces as they achieve great strides in the hot room. Denine is inspired everyday by each and every student and so grateful for this life she is living.
