Denika Spadafora - Yoga Instructor
Denika Spadafora is originally from Colorado, but has lived and worked in a variety of states and countries for the past 5 years. After getting married in the fall, Denika and her husband, Avery, decided to come back to the area to help open the new Appalachian Coffee Company location in Laurel Park. While Denika also has a background in coffee, her first love has always been that of fitness and movement.
After graduating high school, Denika moved to New York and worked and trained as a dancer there. Eventually walking away from the world of professional dance, Denika translated her love of movement into teaching group fitness classes. She has experience teaching a variety of different class styles, including: yoga, Zumba, aerobics, weight lifting and HIIT, but of all of these, yoga is the one that has transformed her body and her life the most. For years, Denika has traveled consistently and she fell in love with the way that yoga allowed her to easily take her practice on the road. After a 6 month trip through South America and a lot of time on her yoga mat, Denika decided to get her certification through Holy Yoga and to start teaching here in WNC.
Denika's combined love of fitness, anatomy and helping others learn to heal and strengthen their own bodies has made teaching yoga a perfect fit for her passions. She is excited to expand her teaching range to Body Synergy and to add the practice of yoga to the list of amazing services that Body Synergy offers.
