About this pro

I have been teaching & practicing for over 20 years. My yoga has taken me to India four times, Greece, and South America. I am devoted & passionate about the study & teaching of yoga. Both the philosophy & life style of this ancient practice has held my attention & interests for over two decades. 

I enjoy the connection between body, mind & soul on a deep level. Sharing this to help others along this path & journey of life. Giving tools to ease life's sometimes challenging times.

  • Dee Morris

    Denise is so knowledgeable and pays attention to the details and positioning. Being a beginner and older in years that was very important to me. She is the perfect balance of encouraging and challenging and a beautiful person. I highly recommend her as an instructor.

  • Rebekah Fernando

    After years of studying & perfecting her style, Denise Kirkpatrick is a far superior yoga teacher than any other I have experienced. Denise takes her time making sure postures are precisely executed. I’d been feeling sluggish and unmotivated. Yet, after my first class with her, I had so much renewed energy, I felt like I could paint my whole house!!! I’ll always remember that boost of energy! Denise is caring, loving, and funny too. Each class is a masterpiece of yoga practice. If you are serious about yoga’s physical, emotional, & spiritual benefits, Denise expertly connects all the dots! I highly recommend Denise Kirkpatrick! .

  • Kathleen Mulcahy

    My experience with Denise Kirkpatrick and cross yoga has been great. Denise is very passionate about what she does and is extremely knowledgeable in her practice. I always felt that she was mindful of my ability and my posture and encouraged me to push myself while still not injuring myself. I would be happy to work with Denise at any time in the future and feel extremely comfortable in recommending her.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I will start from the basics and move from this point. Covering from the ground up, feet to head. Then working with the general catagories of asanas. Standing poses first to build strength & endurance. Continuing on from there. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have done over seven extensive teacher trainings spending well beyond $ 15,000 on my continuing education. This started in Santa Barbara at the White Lotus, Santa Monica with Erich Schiffmann, Yoga Works with Maty Ezera, David Swanson Ashtanga, Yoga Works in Mission Viejo, Carolyn Belko in Encinitas and completing and becoming an  Iyengar Certified Instructor in 2019. Adding numerous workshops along the way. I have studies and been blessed to have been with some of the best teachers of my days here and abroad. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge $85 for 90 minutes. I can work with my rates if 5 or more sessions are set. 

How did you get started teaching?

I started because I needed something more in my life over 20 years ago. My life has be been the same and it has beff egg n the best journey I could have ever planned. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with children, teens, young adults, adults and seniors. Most public classes have mixed demographic. My training allows for this diversity. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I went to Bali for my birthday. We had our sons come the first week and then our friends the second, fantastic!

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure they have experience, they know how to handle different health issues and are not right out of their first teacher training. My first teacher told me,"you will not be a teacher until you have been teaching at let's 10 year!" I understand this now!
