The Ancient Yoga and True Nourishment Story


Ancient Yoga Studio and True Nourishment was created by reiki healer and Chef Denise Portillo, who understands the importance of a healthy mind, body and soul. As a health conscious chef, she knows that a studio that promotes overall well being is just as important as eating healthy. Living an organic life and learning to develop balance, encourages positivity in our hectic lives. Through yoga, meditation, reiki energy healing & healthy diet -- Ancient Yoga and True Nourishment  has helped many people create a healthy positive life they deserve.

Our founder’s personal journey to balance and grounding is the basis for her creating this wellness center. Misdiagnosed with panic disorder, anxiety, low blood pressure and allergies -- Chef Denise Portillo faced every doctor visit leaving her more and more discouraged.  After years of medications, their side effects, and not seeing progress -- she realized she had to find an alternative. Seeking a spiritual path and help from others, Portillo quickly found that she was not alone. Realizing her afflictions were an emotional sickness whose energy manifested as physical symptoms, she made changes in her daily life. Meditation, exercise, and eating healthy made a difference with her symptoms and showed her that there was another way based in the powerful spiritual energy all around us in our food, our movement and in relationship with others.  Others noticed a drastic change and sought her help an assistance in doing the same for healing work for themselves.

Portillo’s approach focuses on preventative care and realized that she was driven to share this insight with others. By encouraging yoga and meditation, as well as a healthy diet, she seeks to help others develop balance as an anecdote to our busy lives.  A trained reiki healer, she is uniquely qualified to help and coach others in taking that first step towards a spiritual, balanced and healthy life.
