Denise CroftonBIkram Yoga and Yin yoga Instructor
After years of running and working out in a gym Denise wanted to incorporate yoga into her routine, adding flexibility and a form of meditation to her workout schedule. After researching various types of yoga she came across Bikram Yoga and was curious to try this form of Hatha yoga in a heated room. She was surprised to find this yoga not only offered flexibility and meditation, but it also provided a good workout in strength and cardiovascular. Denise truly believes this yoga is the best anti-aging form of exercise that anyone can participate in, it doesnâ€™t matter your age or fitness level.
In September 2012 Denise spent two months at the Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in Los Angeles, learning about the Bishnu Ghosh lineage of Hatha Yoga. She continued her training in Hatha Yoga with Tony Sanchez in May 2014, completing the 84 Asanas: Mastersâ€™ Core System. Then in May 2017 she went to Vancouver and received her Yin Yoga training with Bernie Clarke and Diana Batts. Along with her passion for yoga, Denise also practices Zen Meditation based on the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh and is assistant Bell Master to Ray Nakano at the Toronto Buddhist Church. Yoga and Meditation has been a part of Deniseâ€™s life for 18 years and she is so grateful to have this opportunity to share the benefits with you.
