Dena L. Carbone, Owner, CYT, CPT
Dena is the founder of ropaNa Yoga. ropaNa Yoga is a healing, unique style of yoga that will bring you deep into each posture. Using the ropaNa Yoga technique, you will learn how to take your practice to new heights and redefine what your practice means to you. Dena developed her own style of yoga changing the approach to the more challenging postures. When the body is properly opened, the more challenging postures are welcomed by the body -not resisted.
Dena began practicing yoga 19 years ago. She has been teaching for 13 years. She founded ropaNa yoga after she was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in her 20’s. She has always used yoga as a large part of treatment to alleviate pain and bring relief. After realizing her unique style could help alleviate pain for others, too, ropaNa Yoga came to be.
Dena is also a Certified Personal Trainer specializing in helping clients back to wellness after injury and/or illness, or just needing to get back into shape.
Dena lives in Springvale with her husband and three beautiful girls
