Denise Ferguson

Denise, the owner of Yoga Sanctuary, combines breath, movement, and music to create an experience that occurs when one is in perfect alignment not just anatomically, but also when one’s deepest most heartfelt desires and beliefs are expressed perfectly in their life. Her classes have a large emphasis on carrying this feeling of perfection through the class from start to finish, sometimes allowing the experience to be the peak and sometimes working her students towards a peak pose. She is an experienced registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance (ERYT) and has been teaching yoga since 2005.

Great teacher very inspiring! The pace was great, loved the challenge of a new teacher. Schedule was just right and enough to do and enough time not to do.

Words cannot describe how beneficial that one month of yoga was for me! I went at least three times a week and my stresses (which are many!) became a lot easier to deal with it. The teachers were more than just yoga instructors but life teacher/coaches. I always got so much out of their stories and way of ‘being’. I read your latest newsletter and it said something about yoga being a way of life not something you do, and I think the teachers really modeled this and showed me how I could also take my practice into life, which has helped me come to terms with, and deal with, a few things. Please tell them to keep doing what they are doing because not only are they giving people a great workout, but they are also so inspiring and give great guidance for us in everyday life. Heavy stuff, I know!
