Dennis agrees with Pattabhi Jois' statement in the movie Enlighten Up that the main goal of yoga is to discipline the mind. Dennis feels that Kundalini Yoga is one of the most effective, fun and quickest methods to practice the art of disciplining the mind.

His approach is gentle and focuses on opening up the energy centers in the body with Kundalini Yoga exercises. He has studied with Kundalini master Gurmukh and completed Yogi Bhajan's Kundalini Teacher Training. His classes are invigorating, grounding, intuitive, fun and leave you feeling centered, calm and smiling.

JasonJason Jardine graduated from the Utah College of Massage Therapy in 2006 and started working at the Salt Lake City campus soon after teaching Human Anatomy for massage therapists. He is thrilled to be returning to Hawaii to co-facilitate his first men's yoga and massage retreat with Dennis and jaRed, and will be offering his services as a massage therapist for retreat participants during the Healing Hands Retreat.
