About Denise

Born in Queens, NY to Jamaican parents. Raised in the South - Greensboro, NC. Rebirthed and bred in Washington, DC.

​As a former high school math teacher with almost 20 years of classroom experience, I discovered that what I enjoy most about teaching is being able to support and walk alongside others through their process of self-discovery and "problem" solving. I founded Akoma Wellness, where I serve as a well-being guide and soul alignment coach to those who seek to reclaim the "missing" variables in their lives and are ready to undergo a process of rebirth and transformation.


​I am a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 200) and have received certifications and training in Life Coaching, Reiki (Level 1&2), Tarot Advising, Meditation, Sound Healing, Trauma-Informed Care, Yoni Breathing, EFT (Tapping), Mindfulness, Herbalism, and the AromaTouch Technique. In September 2019, I was initiated as a Priestess of Yemaya in the Lucumi (Orisha) tradition in Havana, Cuba and received the name, Yemaya Adédoja.

My intention is to create and hold sacred spaces that support individuals with re-membering who they are and embodying the power that comes with being connected to the heart. My prayer is that we live lives where we can be whole. be love. be free.
