Hi, I‘m Denise Alston and Welcome to Spirit 1st Yoga.

I'll guide you through major life transitions and support you in maintaining your health.

Transitions: I believe every person deserves a life they love and I know that, sometimes, we can get unclear about what we want when our lives change: we retire from a loved career; we move to a new location; a relationship ends; or our children move on to their own lives. 

These are transitions I am trained to help you through so you can create an amazing, fulfilling Next Phase. I use a process delineated in the text, The Four Desires,  and bring together decades of yoga and psychology study and practice to  empower your to create a life you deserve.

Worry-free Living.

Self-care: For many years, I struggled with Western medicine to preserve my health in a natural way and I sought out many alternative health care approaches. I learned to Take Charge! of my health most effectively through the ancient wisdom of the Science of Life: Ayurveda, the sister-science of Yoga. I use its gentle, simple methods to maintain my health into my senior years and keep me grounded. Let me share this life-changing guidance with you.
