Denise Yates holds a 200 Hour RYT certification with Yoga Alliance that she completed under the guidence of Ashley Theiser, owner of the Yoga Loft Tampa in 2014. She is also Chair Yoga Certified, which allows her to be able to provide modifications for all levels even those who would prefer or are bound to a chair for any reason. Her first years with yoga were not in a studio but were dependent upon her curiosity and hours of self study and research. She has always had a love for sharing knowledge with others and comes from a corporate training background so she understands the daily demands that a lot of her students experience.
Her early years were filled with anxiety and panic attacks until she found yoga. The transformation that “being present” had on her life was immeasurable! She found the asana part of yoga first and was amazed at how time seemed to fly and how immersed in it she would become while moving through the poses. It forced her to be in the moment, which was exactly what she needed. Yoga has taught Denise how to rise and grow from challenges. It has helped her learn how to love herself and given her a sense of peace unlike anything she has ever experienced before. She wants to share yoga and all its aspects with as many people as possible so that they can learn, heal, and grow from it.
With all the pressures we face every day, she invites you to go back to the basics. Let go of all your worries about the past and whats going to happen in the future. All you have to do in this moment is be present and just breathe….Namaste
