Dennis has been practicing yoga and meditation since 1996. Over the years he has studied with and has been inspired by a number of teachers such as Cyndi Lee, Dharma Mittra, Bryan Kest, and Michael Stone among so many others.
In 2009, Dennis received his initial certification from Sankalpah Yoga through the teaching of Isaac Pena, Jude English, and Mary Dana Abbott, a practice specializing in intelligent sequencing and incorporation of yogic philosophy.
Dennis guides a challenging and fun class incorporating intelligent sequencing, hands-on adjustments, and posture modifications to ensure everyone leaves feeling successful and, most importantly, to open the body, mind, and soul.
He credits his practice with his cultivation of fearlessness allowing for the many shifts, professionally and personally, he has made in his life. Dennis encourages students to integrate the gentle shifts that occur on their mats with the outside world. Dennis also taught yoga for a number of years through The Lineage Project, bringing trauma-sensitive mindfulness to young people, ages 11–24, navigating serious challenges. He continues to marvel at the significant impact the awareness practices have on the youth who, ultimately, are his best teachers.
