Dena Berzen

What do you want your riders to get/feel from your classes? 
I want my riders to feel energized and strong while riding my classes. I want riders to feel like they can let go of everything else going on around them and they can be present in the moment.
What keeps you motivated?
The music and our community. No matter what kind of day I had, I know that once that music comes on, everything is okay and that I am surrounded with an amazing community of supportive riders and instructors.
Do you have a training philosophy?
Listen to your body. If you need to go a little slower, that’s okay. If you need that extra push, fantastic! Every day is different and will feel different. You need to allow yourself to go through the ups and downs and grow from it all.
How do you stay connected to your Podium Community?
Instagram! I love posting polls to find out what everyone likes and needs so that my classes are geared towards the community.
What is your favourite artist or song to teach to? 
I really love anything pop. Anything with a good beat and some fun lyrics. If I am thinking of an artist in particular, probably Kelly Clarkson or Brittney Spears.
What can riders look forward to when they welcome you into their home with Podium?
Very high energy and lots of dancing. The second that music starts, I can’t help myself but keep moving trough the whole class.
What are 3 words that describe you?
Energetic, Passionate, Bubbly.
Do you have a quote to live by?
“Probably some of the best things that have ever happened to you in life, happened because you said yes to something. Otherwise things just sort of stay the same.” - Danny Wallace
