Holistic Nutritionist | Yoga Educator | Yoga Instructor
Danielle is a respected ‘teacher’s teacher’ who assists in workshops, retreats and teacher training around the world. She shares this knowledge with her students and other instructors so they can practice and teach wisely, sustainably and mindfully.
Danielle was raised in ‘The Sunny Okanagan Valley’, picking fruit from the trees in the backyard, running free in the forests that surrounded their house and spent summers camped out on the local beaches.
With that natural curiosity about the world around her, Danielle chose a job where she could explore, work and live in different countries. In 1999, based out of Fukuoka, Japan, she went to her first yoga class, which was taught in Japanese. Instantly she found herself drawn into the movement, the community and the inner peace it brought.
Settling in Toronto, Danielle reinvented herself a few times and after a lengthy journey she finally realized her passion. Danielle spent the next few years re-educating herself in Health and Wellness. Her career began immediately after finishing her studies when she was hired to create and implement a Health and Wellness Program at an In-Patient Addiction Recovery Center for Drugs, Alcohol and Mental Health. She worked with clients 5 days a week, teaching them yoga in a group setting, then seeing each client one-on-one for personal health concerns, nutritional education or private yoga sessions.
Years of research, scientific inquiry, self understanding, development and integration have gone into Danielle’s work. The result is an evolved set of techniques and approaches that interconnect the yoga you love with everything else your body needs to stay healthy.
"Danielle’s teaching style is dynamic, raw and commanding. Her classes are contagious and eloquently cued, leaving the student knowing precisely where they are going so they can enjoy the journey of the class. Her sharp intuition to read the room delivers a class that leaves you balanced, grounded, electrified and wanting more."
"Danielle is a fierce leader and her transitions push the boundaries of your comfort zone, while offering a mentally challenging, balanced and grounded class. With a bold personality and an overly compassionate nature, I trust in Danielle’s instincts as both an instructor and my health coach."
