About Coach

Denine and her husband Chris moved to Lake Country from San Diego, CA in 2021.  She retired from a 30-year career in higher education, most recently as assistant dean of the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering.   She currently gives back to the community as chair of the Lake Oconee Youth Alliance and as an admissions reader for Georgia Tech.  Denine enjoys an active lifestyle including golf, pickleball, paddleboarding, hiking, and fitness.  Her favorite activity is travel and most recent destinations have included New Zealand, Quebec, Costa Rica, USVI, and many national parks.  She earned her Yoga teaching certification with Cloud Nine Yoga School in Kauai.

Turning Point

Denine began a daily yoga practice in 2020 as a way to center during a time of extreme life transition.   At the height of the pandemic, her daughters had moved on to college, she and her husband had retired, and they were exploring new places to call home.   Since then, yoga has become an integral part of her wellness lifestyle.

Motivation & Passion

Denine finds joy in the mind-body connection and choreography of vinyasa flows.  She is motivated by the sense of well-being and gratitude she experiences everytime she steps onto the mat.  Denine is excited to share the benefits of yoga practice with members and visitors to the Well.

Denine will offer several classes including: Dynamic Strength Flow

Feel present and connected as you link breath and movement in this full-body, dynamic strength Vinyasa flow.  We’ll begin the class with a centering warm-up, followed by creative sun salutations, challenge ourselves with a moving meditation power flow, and complete the class with deep stretches.  This class is appropriate for all levels.
