Inspired Yogi…What’s Your Story? 

Denise Sharperson

How long have you practiced Yoga? How often per week?  12 years. Five to six days per week.

What made you decide to practice Yoga?  In 2004 I gave birth to my first child and wanted to find a form of exercise to help lose the extra weight from pregnancy and nursing so I attended my first Bikram yoga class in Alexandria Virgnia with my best friend. I was hooked from the moment I walked into the hot room.

What do you like about practicing Yoga at National Harbor?  It is so relaxing and peaceful to practice outside near water.
Looking up to the sky, I really feel one with nature.

What is your favorite Yoga pose and why is it your favorite?  My favorite pose is Bridge because it is really challenging for me. Once I achieve it, I never want to come out of it but I mentally dread each time that I need to prepare for it.

Describe how Yoga has enhanced or changed your life.  It has helped me calm my mind and focus on the important aspects of life.
