A Great Yoga Teacher

With extensive experience, Dennis is a great yoga teacher. He pays attention to everyone in his class. Before the session starts, he would ask each one of us our physical conditions, Then he would make adjustments accordingly. Dennis is also very friendly, always with a smile to greet us, and always thanks us for attending.

Excellent Yoga Instructor

I took yoga lessons from Dennis in a string of weekly sessions for more than two years.

Dennis always begins sessions with contemplative periods of centering relaxation, and then stretching. The moves progress from floor work to upright moves, and then return to the floor for stretching, relaxing and final closure. There is plenty of variety, and members can ask for specific attention to one or another part of the body. The tempo and serious focus remain constant throughout the time. Dennis is always aware of individual needs of class members, often adjusting moves for one or another according to their special needs.
I knew nothing of yoga before I began sessions with Dennis, and I have learned a great deal about all phases of the practice. Now that I cannot attend the class, his careful instruction means that I can carry on my own yoga sessions with very satisfactory results. Attending his classes has meant a great deal to me.

Buttimer Review - Simon Foster

Being a newcomer to Yoga I have found Dennis to be an excellent teacher - very safety oriented, needed for a senior like me, and prepared to explain the benefits of each exercise to the different parts of the body - I was a sceptic but am now a believer - more relaxed and much more flexible

It has been a pleasure working with you over these years, Simon.
You have demonstrated patience and curiosity with yourself and the practice.
I remain impressed with your willingness to move forward.
Thank you for your wit with the thymus tapping and the psoas!

Namaste,
Dennis

Changed my life completely

Thanks to Dennis, I have experienced a significant increase in well-being over the past two to three years. More recently as I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis, the benefits have been even greater. I am not sure how I could deal with it without Dennis.

Thank you, Jim. Wow, what a touching review!
You are what I call a prince of a guy. You practice yoga with smooth, mindful movements. Your commitment to daily practice shows as I watch you progress through various poses in class. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you over the past few years.

Namaste,
Dennis
