After the death of his partner and years of running, a friend recommended Integral Yoga for some stretching of the body and soul; and so began Dennis’ yoga journey.

The years that followed found him practicing serial yoga monogamy of styles including Hatha, Iyengar, Vinyasa, Jivamukti, Bikram, being inspired by Cyndi Lee, Dharma Mittra, Bryan Kest, and practicing at dozens of studios in New York and around the world. Searching for some new inspiration, Dennis stumbled into Sankalpah one Saturday morning to take a class. The practice, with its intelligent sequencing and the subtle incorporation of yogic philosophy, resonated true for him.

He has always credited his yoga practice with his cultivation of fearlessness allowing for the many shifts he has made in his life including leaving his comfortable corporate job. With this “why not” attitude, he approaches each day as a fresh new start and hopes that his students can find this as well. New opportunities are always available if we are conscious to them. It is recognizing these opportunities that we begin to understand they are the road signs on our path.

Dennis weaves together, with a quiet authority, an energetic vinyasa flow to open the body, mind, and soul.
