Denise’s work focuses on her commitment to and support of mature adults. Her program, The Art of Mindful Aging, helps people over 50 give voice to their fears of aging. She guides them toward establishing a deeper bond with their aging bodies. The goal at GreyingGoddess is to cultivate a mindful and creative approach to aging on their terms.
Denise was exposed to yoga as a young girl and in 1999 earned her Yoga Teacher Certification. She taught Gentle Yoga for ten years, along with workshops focusing on the benefits of yoga for the maturing woman. She is featured in the book Yoga and the Wisdom of Menopause. Her involvement with yoga led to the spiritual practices that she continues to apply today. At 65 years young, Denise knows that a regular spiritual practice supports aging mindfully and moves the attention from the ego to the soul.
Expanding her yoga knowledge, Denise traveled to India in 2003 to complete her Tantra Teacher Training and Certification. Her belief that a thriving sexuality continues to be vital to our health and well being as we age, is explored in The Art of Mindful Aging program.
Prior to founding GreyingGoddess, Denise owned ColorStyleStudio, a company dedicated to styling women over 50. It was listening to her clients’ fears of aging, and a dread of losing their footing in a youth-obsessed culture, that inspired the birth of GreyingGoddess. GreyingGoddess serves women at their core, so they can age with honor, respect and awe.
