About Denese Cavanaugh, Founder

Denese Cavanaugh, ERYT500/CPT/YACEP/Presenter/Yoga Therapy enrolled, is an international yoga teacher and founded The IPATH® Method in 2009.  

Denese Cavanaugh developed IPATH® out of 26 years of Yoga and Pilates instruction.  Her philosophy suggests yoga is a tool to help students reclaim and enjoy their own bodies and mind, so they are able to share their passions in life.

Voted "Best Yoga  Teacher" 2014 and 2015 by the Washington City Paper, she has even given numerous private and event yoga sessions with First Lady Michelle Obama.

Her passion for mentoring yoga teachers and alignment yoga led her to create IPATH®, (Integral Postural Alignment Therapeutics), allowing her to share her expertise with people with failing posture and back pain.

She holds a YACEP® designation (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider) and offers 200 and 300hr Yoga Teacher Training curriculum and 75 Hour IPATH training at Deva Yogamynd in Milan Italy, Denese hails from NYC and currently lives in Bethesda, MD.

 

Denese believes in continuous learning,  and currently studying  Yoga Therapy at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. 

She is humbled and grateful to her teachers for sharing their unbounded insight and generosity and is honored to share that generous evolution with others.

Genna teachers her community how to enjoy movement. From cycling, barre, running, or strength training she makes her love of fitness fun and social for everyone. She found the IPATH Method after a personal back injury left her feeling...left out on the sidelines. With weekly practice and lengthening, the pain turned back into strength. She is ready to share her knowledge of self-healing with others who suffer from similar chronic pain.

Silvia Niccolini

IPATH Restorative Yoga

Available for private and group IPATH sessions

 

"As a pharmacist, I can say that among the best selling drugs there are painkillers, used for joint and muscle pain, back pain, and headache. As a yoga teacher with IPATH, I have a wonderful "tool" to permanently and holistically solve back/body pain. Only one "side effect": the achievement of self-awareness! "  

"Come farmacista posso dire che tra i farmaci più venduti ci sono gli antidolorifici, usati per dolori muscolo-articolari, mal di schiena e mal di testa.

Come insegnante di yoga con IPATH ho un fantastico "strumento" per risolvere i dolori di corpo e schiena in modo olistico e definitivo. Unico "effetto collaterale": il raggiungimento della consapevolezza di sé!"
