Denise Hopkins, CST

CranioSacral Therapist

A simple southern girl from the low lands of Louisiana packed up her things 9 days after college graduation and headed for NYC. It was there that Denise spent 13 years working in the fashion industry and it was there that she began her healing journey. It started with one yoga class shortly after 911. Yoga quickly become her saving grace to the competitive nature of the fashion industry. Within a few years, she quit her job and signed up for the month-long Forrest Yoga Teacher Training. She has been teaching since 2005 and continues to assist Ana Forrest (creator of FY) nationally and has been chosen to become a Forrest Yoga Guardian.


It was through Forrest Yoga that Denise fell in love with hands-on healing and was introduced to CranioSacral Therapy. Intuitive touch is something that came naturally to her. She feels that we live in a touch starved society and when touch comes from the heart with right intention it can help to facilitate the bodies natural ability to heal. She practices the ‚ÄúVisionary” approach to CST under the Milne Institute and continues to study there.
