Today's guest is Denise Druce. Denise has been inspiring people to live healthier, happier lives for over 4 decades! Her students refer to her as ‘The Elevator’…when you’re around her, you’re going up! She is a TEDx Salt Lake City speaker and a co-founder of the non-profit Yoga Forward, “taking yoga where it isn’t”…prisons, shelters, schools, and shopping malls. Her greatest life lessons came with her journey with breast cancer. In 2020, Denise pivoted to online teaching, and she currently fills her days training yoga teachers and teaching classes virtually to a worldwide audience. Denise has a Master’s degree in public health and is a married mother of three boys.
