Denise Marie Antoine is a yoga instructor and Reiki Practitioner based in Los Angeles, CA. She is a formally trained dancer with an emphasis on ballet and lyrical modern dance. Due to lack of financial resources, upon graduation from L.A. County Hight School for the Arts (LACHSA), she made the painful choice to decline acceptance to study dance at both The Ailey School and NYU/Tisch. This shifted her path to healing and empowerment of other marginalized groups.

She has spent over a decade working in the fields of healing, entertainment, non-profits, and yoga. Her passions include educating students on the importance of a healthy mind and body, and using yoga as a tool to rise above the challenges life presents.

Her teaching style focuses on alignment, fluidity in breathe and movement, balance, and strength. All levels are welcome to a challenging Power Flow with a likely arm balance or two…She currently offers Reiki sessions and teaches group classes & workshops at yoga studios, corporate offices, and non-profits throughout Los Angeles.

She is also active in the movement against human trafficking and worked on staff as the donor relations manager and outreach leader for Treasures Ministries. She is honored to partner as an advocate for women through outreach and care.

Denise completed her 200hr teacher training with Travis Eliot and Lauren Eckstrom and is Trauma Informed Yoga trained by Uprising Yoga. She is currently continuing her study of Reiki, massage therapy, and abortion recovery counseling.
