Dena came to Yoga at the age of forty seven with poor posture, a weak back and the early signs of fading vitality. She started with one class and very quickly, her practice of Yoga escalated to three or more classes each week. Her back pain lessened as her posture improved and her flexibility increased as she learned to control her problems when they did arise with Yoga postures.
She has since studied with the greatest living Yoga master, B.K.S. Iyengar, Geeta, his daughter,and his senior teachers, in an array of workshops. She has also studied in India with the Iyengars and continues her studies with various senior Iyengar teachers.
Dena began her career as a Yoga teacher in 1984 and was Certified in 1991.
At age 80, Dena continues to be her own best advertisement. A living example of how “Gentle Yoga for Stiff Bodies” can help change aging from something we dread to a precious and fulfilling time of our lives that we embrace with vigor. (Source: from Dena’s Website)
