The class is strongly physical and yet very meditative. The focus falls on recognizing and developing a crystal clear sharp and alert mind which allows for a state of heighten awareness and concentration to occur so the student can then experience the asanas by feeling the inner alignment and pranic flow as suppose to just do the asanas. Mastery of breath flow – conscious, specific application of pranayama, pinpoints every single movement in the class and makes Transcendence possible. Gentle hands on adjustments, mantras application, mudras, bandhas, meditation and deep relaxation (yoga nidra) are weaved into the class structure.
My desire is to inspire everyone who comes to practice to gather faith, strength, determination and courage to go beyond their own boundaries and limitations and dive within the immensity of the Self perceived and realised through the practice of yoga so Liberation can be not only a theory, but also a possible reality.
"There is uniqueness and depth to Denisa's class. A sense of spirit, community, humour and feeling that combined with her caring and gentle approach makes the yoga class invaluable." Laura
"Denisa's classes are a real lifeline to get through stress-filled London life.Where other teachers may concentrate on the physical aspects of yoga, philosophy and spiritual insight are intrinsic to the practice Denisa imparts. I value the improved mental state, motivation and focus from the class, and the work on our personal attitudes. The result is a wonderful union towards the end of the class that I'm sure everyone feels when we complete the class chanting Om." Robin
"Denisa's classes are magical, I learn more than just yoga poses from her every week...The class is truly a spiritual experience. Uplifting, fun and my body loves it! " Alecyss
"I was down to the Special Yoga Centre for a workshop and decided to stay for Denisa's class - what a Find! I would seriously consider moving to London for a teacher like her. The practice was balanced, flowing and fun, incorporating everything I needed. Loved the pranayama, asana, and relaxation - a Joy ! Left class feeling replenish, nourished and Happy " Kate
