Danielle is a 500 RYT & PRYT certified through Alliance. Danielle continues to nurture the curiosity of her souls purpose. Yoga planted this seed of questioning why we are all here with this gift of life. Danielle continues to deepen her yoga practice, learning and unlearning as she goes. Danielle invites her students to slow down, set down the current dramas of life, finding presence, healing, strength, laughter, all while moving from a sense of drishti (focus), healing physically and energetically, exhaling illusion and suffering. She simply invites her students to get out of their own way.
Danielle’s classes are filled with playful traditional & unique transitions, with anywhere from simple to challenging yoga postures (asanas). Always incorporating breath focus and awareness.
