Denise Mendez

DENISE MENDEZ

Instructor
Learn About Denise

Denise started yoga in the end of 2012 in hopes of "getting in shape". This busy mom/wife/hairstylist had never done any physical activities or workouts her whole life. She was finally ready to focus on her own health and didn't realize her favorite part would be the time on the mat with herself.

Denise was instantly hooked when she started practicing Ashtanga yoga, but could only make it in once a week. Life took her on a mini hiatus through the next 2 years but she began seeking more from her practice. By the end of 2014 she found a teacher that kept class vigorous, challenging, fun and palatable for real life. This finally got Denise to be a dedicated practitioner which inspired her to take the 200 hour teacher training program in September 2015.

Denise began teaching in January of 2016 prior to her February YTT graduation. An awesome relationship with arm balancing developed and propelled her into teaching her own Arm Balancing workshop at studios in the area. She likes to keep her classes focused on all that sparked her passion while helping people realize all their limitless possibilities. Her vigorous, challenging, and fun flows build strength and maybe even laughter.
