Dena moved to Greenville from Atlanta in July 2016, and it was love at the first moment. After many years of competitive sports, group fitness instruction and being an all-around self-proclaimed “gym rat”, she realized the importance of keeping her body “bendy”. She started practicing at Zanti Power Yoga after minimal yoga experience, and again fell in love with what ZPY offered…high energy classes combining cardio, strength training and yoga in a cool, fun and relaxed atmosphere. After taking her first Sculpt class and wondering if she would survive, Dena knew she had to overcome her own personal intimidation and accept her own challenge to become a Sculpt instructor, which she did in May 2017.
Dena’s most recent and self-gratifying accomplishment is the completion of her YTT at Soul in February 2018! Personally, she enjoys the mind-breath-body connection that yoga practice offers. As an instructor, she loves the community and personal connections with others that yoga allows. Dena hopes to share her high energy with others and strives to provide her clients challenging and rewarding classes, where clients leave Soul better/different than they arrived, in both mind and body.
Dena is also a local cycle, HIIT, Bootcamp and BODYPUMP instructor.
