I began to practice yoga in 2001 after my Dr. suggested yoga to help relieve the back pain that had plagued me for many years. After my first class, I knew that I had found my passion. I began to study the yoga philosophy and finished my certification through the Yoga Alliance in the lyengar tradition of hatha yoga in 2003. I have been teaching ever since, and find it just as exciting today. I continue to deepen my studies daily through reading, meditation, yoga workshops and teacher trainings. It is my goal to practice, teach, train and guide my students to help bring the healing, relaxation, balance and strength they find on the mat, into their lives.
Before becoming interested in yoga Dennis had an amazing career in manufacturing, then served in the US Air Force working on the SR-71 and U2 aircraft. He did a tour in Desert Storm. Later he was employed in high tech and now works as an electro-mechanical technician. After decades working on machinery Dennis felt something was missing. Though involved with esoteric studies there was that nagging feeling there must be something more to life. Cues from esoteric studies and from projects utilizing high technologies reveled
a hidden aspect in Dennis' personality, a latent desire to teach. He wanted to be involved working with people instead of on machinery.
As an avid recreational bicyclist, Dennis took up yoga in the Spring of 2010 to balance the muscular effects of biking. Soon practicing several times a week, yoga became his passion. The two passions teaching and yoga came together! He has attained his 300 hr. yoga certificates.
Dennis leads an easy to moderate vinyasa flow tailoring positions as needed. His concentration is on breath balance and flow referring to yoga as a moving meditation, a metaphor for life wherein one practices balance effort and ease.
It is my desire to facilitate a yoga practice that awakens each student to their full potential. I was certified as RYT 200 in 2014 through Yoga alliance with Dennis Eagan of Wild Yoga and Holly Sweeney. I have just finished another 100 hour certification for a total of 300 hours of formal training. New students are always welcome with no experience necessary.
