Deni moved to Queenstown, New Zealand in 2015 and fell in love with this place. It wasn’t until living here that she started practicing yoga asana. Thanks to dancing since she was 5 years old and her developed body awareness, she quickly recognized the benefits of yoga practices, not only at the physical level. Curiosity led her deeper and deeper into studying yogic philosophy and practices until she completed 200 hours of Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in Mysuru, India, in 2017. She has also completed 100 hours of Acroyoga Teacher Training and an additional 100 hours of Acroyoga mentorship with Chelsea and Jason Magness in Te Anau, NZ.
Deni specialises in Vinyasa, Hatha, and Chakra specific yoga. Her classes combine mindful movement with breath awareness and finish with pranayama and meditation. Influenced by The Practice in Bali and teachings of Octavio Salvado, Deni’s Tantric Hatha classes use intelligent sequencing with the aim to move your prana with purpose.
Deni is originally from the Czech Republic. In 2008 she left her country when she was 18 to travel and gain experience abroad, mainly to improve her English. After working at the Walkers Crisps factory in England for a year, she decided to move to Scotland in order to study. Deni has finished her Master’s Degree in Sociology at the University of Aberdeen and spent 7 years in Scotland; working full time and teaching dancing alongside her studies.
If Deni isn’t leading yoga classes, she’s teaching acroyoga with her partner Chris, or getting you moving at her Streetdance classes – a style she’s been teaching since 15 years old. She is also a very passionate and intuitive holistic massage therapist and Reiki practitioner, offering sessions as a mobile service. She enjoys traveling, slacklining and climbing, as well as spending time with friends and sipping coconut lattes.
Deni continues cultivating her student-like mindset on a daily basis and stays on her journey of trying to be the best version of herself every day.
