Instructor: Denise DeLuca
Denise DeLuca was born an artist, seeing everyday as a gift of inspiration. She shares her passion for the artistry of yoga with deep devotion and abiding love. Denise’s soulful teaching is inspired by her students and an ongoing commitment to parenting, meditation, yoga, chanting, writing, and all that fuels the expansion of her heart as a devoted student of life. Denise was first initiated into yoga through her mother in her teens and began a meditation practice that led her to an ever-unfolding experience of Pure Consciousness and transformational power. Shortly after receiving a 200 hour certificate in 1998, she found Anusara Yoga and received a 300 hour Anusara Yoga Certification with Todd Norian. In her classes, Denise creates an exciting, yet safe space intended to nurture the student’s highest potential by offering precise alignment instruction, a deep understanding of the bio-mechanics of the body, intelligent sequencing, mythology and Tantric philosophy. She is known as a community collaborator and motivator for deepening our connection and love as a collective consciousness. “My deepest desire is to empower my students to awaken to the full spectrum of their hearts, as a conduit of Divine understanding, unfathomable bliss, and freedom, and to use their practice, as well as their lives, as a continual affirmation of this masterpiece of life!”
