Denis Welby created The Yoga Den as a place for people looking to improve their wellbeing by re-balancing the connection between mind and body in a safe and supported environment. He has practised Iyengar and Shadow yoga for over 20 years and he has been teaching for over 10 years.

Denis says: “I believe that through consistently practising yoga and Stretch therapy, a person will vastly improve how they move through everyday life. After many years of study and practice I am a firm believer in the ancient Asian wellbeing philosophy of endeavouring to maintain balance physically, emotionally and energetically. ​The desire to assist people in achieving this all round balance has led me to provide shiatsu and oriental therapies to compliment yoga & stretch therapy classes.”
