Summary: ...yoga doesn't have to be so serious.
mark.jpgMark Dennis started his yoga studies in his teens, studying under Lilias Folan of PBS fame. Mark starts with the premise that yoga doesn't have to be so serious. His classes emphasize the natural extension of joints and muscles in poses, alternating active strengthening and flexibility poses with passive relaxing and restorative poses.

Since all people are anatomically different, individualized experience of poses is emphasized over idealized form. Mark has a bachelor's degree in Preventive Health Care and Psychcology, is a certified massage therapist and has been involved in the pain management field for over 30 years. He is a performing musician and artist the rest of the time.
