Dani did her yoga teacher training and Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. Although she has taught various styles of yoga from vigorous to restorative, from group classes to privates, from workshops to online courses, she always comes back to the compassion that Kripalu Yoga is rooted in.
Breathe. Relax. Feel. Watch. Allow.
In yoga teacher training she was reminded of these words over and over again, just as she was reminds herself that her body and the bodies of her students are the true teachers.
In her classes, Dani reminds her students of the importance of listening to their bodes and practicing from a place of compassion over and over again. For Dani this is where the journey of yoga begins.
