Align & Refine Yoga


This class is taught by:

Denise Meriwether

I have been practicing yoga since 2010. I am a certified yoga teacher and received my 200-hour yoga teacher training from Jerry Smith-Guidry at Acadiana Yoga and Wellness. I also completed the Pilates Mat 101 Certification there.

I have had wonderful yoga teachers; a few of them are Pamela Reed Gagen, Shannon Sonnier, Bindu Patel, Anna Beggs and Neil Gresham.
I love meeting new people & want to share my knowledge. I like to teach classes that anyone could join. These include Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Tapping, and Chi Gong.

“A teacher must do more than be of service to the students who come to them. A great teacher finds joy and personal inspiration in every opportunity that the practice offers. Jerry is one such great teacher.”

Sharon Gannon

Author, Jivamukti Yoga: Practices for Liberating Body and Soul

“Jerry is an excellent teacher who embodies /teaches/conveys a wholistic understanding of what’s really meant by the word ‘yoga’.”

In all things, Jerry looks to combine the spiritual with the physical.
