About Denise Ferguson

Throughout her 30’s she was a wild woman with a hunger to understand the meaning of life. She taught & practiced yoga while rebelling against society's expectations of how a yogini should be. Yoga, meditation & wellbeing strengthened her heart/mind, gave solace when things were tough and helped her to conquer her challenges. These days she's living the right way up more often than not. She teaches in and manages her yoga studio, the Yoga Sanctuary and applies the wisdom from her wild years to a healthier and happier life. Denise writes from the perspective of living, learning, failing and overcoming the tests of a life well lived. This is her personal account on health, happiness, love, success & yoga.

Vinyasa and the Lymphatic System

Did you know that the lymphatic system, which removes bacteria, germs and toxins from your body, doesn’t have a pump?

With lymph being transported between the muscles and the skin, it is these contractions [...]

Natural Antioxidants & Yoga

You know about toxins. They’re those nasties that create free radicals which break down the healthy cells in our bodies. I’m in love with antioxidants, from my daily Co-Enzyme-Q10 (get the ubiquinol variety & eat it with healthy fats like nuts or an avocado), to my regular Vitamin C.
