For Danielle, cultivating a deep yoga practice was a natural extension of her lifelong study of dance and was the perfect way to integrate movement and the mind. Danielle completed her BA in dance and psychology at Hunter College and shortly thereafter received her yoga certification from Laughing Lotus in 2008. After practicing for almost a decade and teaching for five years, she was inspired to pursue her Master’s in Social Work at Hunter College. Danielle utilizes her yoga and meditation practices in therapeutic settings to serve and empower communities throughout New York City. Her classes emphasize alignment of the body with a moveable flow while maintaining connection to the breath. She incorporates all elements of the practice -- physical, mental, and spiritual -- in order to create a strong foundation for her students.
