Hi, my name is Dani 🙂
I’m a yoga teacher and a writer with a MA in English and Creative Writing. Yoga and writing are two of my biggest passions. I’ve been writing for most of my life and teaching yoga for about 15 years.
I did my yoga teacher training at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, and although I have taught various styles of yoga from vigorous to restorative, from group classes to privates, from workshops to online courses, I always come back to the compassion that Kripalu Yoga is rooted in.
Breathe. Relax. Feel. Watch. Allow.
In yoga teacher training we were reminded of these words over and over again, just as we were reminded that our bodies, and the bodies of our students, are the true teachers.
In my classes I remind my students of the importance of listening to their bodies and practicing from a place of compassion over and over again. For me this is where the journey of yoga begins.
The majority of my teaching experience is in Seattle, where I lived for most of those 15 years.
I’ve taught everything from restorative to vinyasa flow to intermediate yoga to beginner yoga to yoga for climbers at the University of Washington.
I also taught a number of different styles of yoga from vigorous flow to yin at gyms, such as the Olympic Athletic Club and Sound Mind and Body, and yoga studios throughout Seattle, such as Phinney Ridge Yoga, Home Yoga, and Sweat Hot Yoga.
I also taught the track and field teams and soccer teams at Seattle Pacific University, and doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
And I’ve taught numerous private classes, as well as workshops.
It’s been quite a journey for me, and I look forward to the next 15 years of exploration on and off the mat!
I hope to help guide you on your yoga journey soon, from a place of compassion and love.
