Denise Hopkins has been teaching yoga in New York City and Brooklyn for the past 10 years. She is an assistant to Ana Forrest at teacher trainings and conferences and has recently been named a “Guardian in Training” by Forrest Yoga. This is a select group of senior teachers who have been selected to carry on the legacy of FY.
Through teaching and practicing, Denise learned the skills she needed to let go of old behavior patterns which set her up for being “walked on”. She found an inner strength which birthed new confidence, passion, and lots of feeling. Denise draws from her strong sense of intuition and passion for hands-on healing. She has a knack for reading the energy of students and responding to what they need. Denise’s way of instructing is direct, clear, and inspiring. It is her desire that every student feels seen and understood. She is also a Cranial Sacral Therapist and incorporates this work into her hands-on assists and private sessions. You can take class with her at Bend & Bloom Yoga in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
