Danielle found yoga in 2001 when she wandered into a class after 9/11 looking for meaning. That seed grew into a practice that changed her life by opening and healing her heart, her body and her mind in unimaginable ways. She continues to deepen her spiritual and asana practice, and believes in balancing the teacher and student roles equally. Manifesting in her classes, she encourages her students to move from their own heart, healing themselves, removing blockages and striving to realize their highest self. Through asana, pranayama, meditation, mudra, mantra, union, surrender and laughter she guides classes that allow each practitioner to get lost in the present and spread their wings. Each class is unique, filled with playful, yet challenging movements, and taught from her authentic heart for the benefit of her students. Danielle believes that we can work out our challenges on the mat, and that can create a more free and love-filled life. Her greatest teachers are her two children. She is currently receiving her 500 hour advanced teacher training and is grateful for the Pacific Cultural Center community. Currently registered as a RYT 200 with Alliance, and has her certification for Pre & Postnatal Yoga from Mount Madonna Center.
