Denna Haslett started her wellness career as a Group Exercise Instructor at a local YMCA while obtaining her Liberal Arts Degree. Upon graduation, it was off to Nursing school. But, unfortunately nursing school and grieving the loss of her father to cancer did not leave much room for teaching group exercise classes. The part of her that enjoyed teaching group exercise classes was pushed aside. Fast forward to 2012, the year of graduation; her yoga mat became a way to return to herself after long shifts working in the ER, being a wife and being a mom. She became recertified as an ACE Group Exercise Instructor and began studying for her 200-hour yoga certification. After discovering the benefits of yoga in healing the past wounds of trauma, she completed her 300-hour Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga Certification (TCTSY) in 2020. She founded Grounded Soul Yoga in 2016 and opened a studio in 2017, to share her love of wellness with the community.
