Years before she actually found them, Denise had a desire to study meditation and the healing arts. When she finally heard of yoga, the spiritual element coupled with its physical discipline & attention to detail seemed like the perfect addition to an already established fitness/stretching habit.
Denise began her yoga practice in 2001 at the Yoga Center Winnipeg where she received her teacher training and continues to study. Along the way, Denise completed the 3.5 month Spiritual Lifestyle Program at Kripalu Center for Health & Wellness and has taken classes and workshops from many awesome instructors.
Styles studied include Iyengar, Ashtanga, Kripalu & Kundalini.
Denise added instructing Yoga to her practice with hopes of honouring those who shared with her by inspiring others to explore this beautiful science.
Professionally she is an electrician, a Certified Nutritional Consultant a Registered Massage Therapist & Founder of Springfield Wellness
"Flexy" Michelle Maryk
Flexy Michelle has been practising yoga since 2000 and teaching since 2016. She is certified in
Ashtanga yoga, ballet barre, pole fitness, flexibility, and self-myofascial release. Flexy also
teaches goat yoga and alpaca yoga in the summer! She has been active her whole life, but her
true wellness journey began on the yoga mat and translated into other mediums of movement
and art. In 2015, Flexy was introduced to pole fitness and instantly fell in love with the art and
athleticism. Yoga and pole fitness opened her world to the circus community, contortion, chair-
acro, as well as performances and national competitions. The strength and flexibility she
possessed from yoga helped her progress quickly in pole and contortion. She even grew an inch
taller at age 30! Her doctor attributes this to stretching and good posture, which definitely
supports her belief that movement is medicine. Flexy Michelle has experience teaching all ages
and demographics from toddlers to seniors. She will always offer a challenge while still making
her classes accessible to all.
