Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

A friend gave me the Manduka Black Mat Pro about 8 years ago, and it has been my favorite mat ever since. My Manduka supports my practice from the ground-up, which gives me the freedom to soar to new heights each time I place my feet at the top of my mat. My Manduka mat holds the energy of my devotion, love, commitment, and every daily discovery from my practice. There is no other mat out there that offers the same kind of support. I love my Manduka!

Dennis first tried yoga on his own by reading the Sivananda Companion to Yoga and putting things he read about into practice. He was hooked. 6 years later, after exploration of many yoga styles and teaching, Dennis spent a month at the Sivananda Yoga Farm in Grass Valley, CA. It was a Teacher Training Course. Coming a full circle, back to the Sivananda teachings. Now, a Registered Yoga Teacher 200, he teaches more than just the Sivananda Hatha yoga. Vinyasa and Power Vinyasa, and Hot Yoga. He is interested in learning more about the therapeutic side of yoga to specifically help people with movement limitations and degenerative diseases.
