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.

SUMMER SOLSTICE CEREMONY: EMBRACING THE SHADOW An Outdoor Event in Encino
Sunday, June 20th 6:00-8:00pm
June 20, 2021 will mark the occurrence of the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, the longest day of the year. The sun will be creating a long arc bringing us more of its brilliant light. We humans tend to move toward the light, rather than the dark. The light is clearer and easier to see, leaving the dark in the shadows and forgotten. Yet the shadow holds its own form of enlightenment, clarity and wisdom. As we turn our attention to the shadow, we can activate its gifts. Celebrating the Summer Solstice may go back as far as the Stone Age. Cultures around the world still celebrate the day.
On Sunday, June 20th we will celebrate the light of the sun and enter the mystery of the shadow by invoking Spirit, shadow exercises, sound and meditation.
Join us in this celebration of light and dark and discover what your shadow reveals. There will be a raffle at the end of the ceremony for a Summer Solstice prize!
