Teaching Beginners, Prop use and setting the room
Denise Zaverdas, E-RYT 500 enjoys the tenure of over 16,000 hours of Yoga instruction. With a B.S. degree in Kinesiology, an unending fascination of human form and function, and the deep curiosity of a seeker, Denise shares the practice from her heart and years of exploration, inquiry, learning and unlearning. While drawing from a diverse blend of disciplines, she emphasizes spirit, breath, structure, strength and fluidity. Often described as a “teacher’s teacher,” Denise guides students inward to foster a deeper connection with their inner master. She is a perpetual student, and her current understanding is that Yoga is about relationship: our inner relationship with Self and Spirit, and our outer relationship with fellow travelers and the world around us. She crafts each unique class as a moving meditation, in preparation for stillness and seated meditation.
