Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

Strong enough to hold my space, supportive and trustworthy. You never complains and do your job with excellence. You allow me to express myself fully. When my life gets crazy, you create the space for me to find peace within. When I am in a stressful situation, you create the space for me to release the tension. When I need to rejuvenate, you create the comfortable supportive space for me to fully rest and relax. Thank you Manduka, you are my best friend and best partner ever!

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.
