YOGA INSTRUCTOR, RYT 200 Hour
Danielle was originally drawn to yoga for the physical benefits and the fact that she enjoyed something that allowed her to feel healthy while also avoiding the gym. A slow progression to start, she was eventually led to her passion for the mind-body connection.
Danielle completed her teacher training in 2015 in Seattle, focusing on Hatha, Vinyasa, Power, Restorative, Yin, and Sculpt in a hot studio. Shortly after, she moved to Southeast Asia, where she taught English and Yoga for 3 years. During her off time, she took every opportunity to explore, learn and dabble in other modalities by attending yoga retreats, workshops and trainings across the region. She obtained a certification of Thai Yoga Massage in Chiang Mai, Thailand, trained in innerdance (a music based meditation practice) on its home island of Palawan in the Philippines, and volunteered in a Vipassanā meditation retreat in a Buddhist Nunnery in Myanmar, along with attending numerous workshops in her free time.
Danielle enjoys bringing it all together in her yoga classes. You can expect a combination of a well-rounded, physical flow, paired with restoration, relaxation and pranayama. Her classes combine music with movement and meditation to allow people an easeful transition out of the externally-driven mind. She believes deeply that yoga is a lifestyle that goes far beyond the postures we do in a class, but we can learn a lot from the asana (postures). These postures lead to a philosophy and a state of being that transforms you in your everyday life.
