Dennis began practicing yoga in 1989. He graduated from Rodney Yee’s Advanced Studies Program at the Piedmont Yoga Studio in Oakland, California in 1998 and has been teaching ever since. Dennis emphasized yoga as an energy practice. Classes are infused with an eclectic mix of proper alignment, breath awareness, earth dynamics, and yoga philosophy. He offers advanced study/teacher training courses, workshops, and wilderness yoga retreats throughout the west from Baja to Alaska.
In the course of my yoga teaching career I have worked with a wide range of people form serious athletes to the elderly to wheel-chair bound students at the Cerebral Palsy Center in Oakland. Yoga is for every body but that can’t be said for every pose. I believe in order to maximize the benefits of yoga the practice must be designed for each individual.
