Choose a program that works best for you.
Remember, staying active with moderate-intensity activities can help boost your heart rate into the fat burning zone and strengthen your immune system, but over training can easily suppress your immune function.
You know what you need to stay healthy and balanced in your daily life. Listen to your body and choose the style of class that benefits and balances yourself on that day. For example, you don’t need vinyasa flow everyday, sometimes a good restorative class is better.
‘Drop the Business of Daily Life
– Enjoy Yoga’
This Vinyasa style class blends dynamic strength training and functional mobility with the mindful practice of yoga. That means more repetitions, cardio, and strength work to increase your endurance and make you sweat. Featuring resistance training and high intensity intervals, yoga conditioning builds stamina, enhances range of motion, and improves aerobic capacity.
A vinyasa style class that provides an innovative approach to traditional movements. Yoking breath and movement together to build a sequence of poses, once the sequence and foundation are set, we repeat it until your body absorbs the movements and the transitions become fluid, and allows your brain to relax into the meditative part of the practice.
Peak Pose Prep
Do not be afraid to rise to the challenge! This is a well rounded class that warms you up and prepares you to achieve the peak pose. With proper guidance and mental focus, all peak poses can be accessible if you are willing to try. You may not be able to attain the pose on your first try, you may even fall, the most important part is that you showed up and you tried.
Move through foundational yoga postures one at a time, breathe deeply, and practice being in the moment. Hatha classes promote balance, strength, flexibility, and stillness in the mind, and are suitable to all levels.
Flow brings balance, strength, and a sense of well-being to the practitioner. While using both the poses and the pace of the classes, the sequences aim to keep the body moving with breath.
These styles allow for more variety, they may build heat, and can be meditative at the same time.
A sequence of long-held passive poses for a highly beneficial therapeutic practice that targets your connective tissues (fascia).

Is an accessible and grounded class that integrates the best elements of yoga, deep fascia release, anatomical precision and mindfulness teachings.

YTT Continuing Education:
Danielle’s in-person continuing education workshops train teachers to be better informed on the physical mechanics of the body and how to apply that knowledge to asana. They also show you how to ethically lead group classes that are accessible and sensitive to all. The programs are designed to help teachers build on their strengths, while discovering their own unique voices.
15-Hour Experiential Anatomy and Myofascial Release
This course can be hosted as a stand alone or it can be added into any 200 or 300 YTT.
Join Danielle Gilmour, renowned yoga teacher on Yoga International for an experiential and engaging breakdown of the human body as it relates to the practice of yoga. You won’t just sit there and take notes; you will learn how to directly apply this essential information to your practice.
This course is designed so students retain what you learn by examining and feeling key anatomical landmarks in your own body. When we integrate anatomical knowledge experientially, we develop an inspired and organic ability to communicate a new depth of understanding. As we work our way through the different areas of the body, we then explore further with myofascial release and corresponding anatomy-focused yoga classes.
Each lecture is broken down and referenced in the Yoga Anatomy Training manual. The manual has ample room for note taking and comes complete with anatomical diagrams, and further simplifies the complex system of the human body including bones, ligaments, fascia, tendons, and more, in an easy to digest fashion.
Through studying advanced integrative anatomy in this course, we cover all the superficial mover muscles and the deep stabilizing muscles, how the myofascial network of the body ‘connects the dots’. After every group of muscles, we palpate the muscle so you can actively find the origin, insertion and differentiate the muscles when grouped together. Followed by myofascial discovery and release, ending with an asana practice focused on targeting and cueing for the specific muscle groups.
Having a strong foundation and understanding of how the muscles work will provide you with tools to teach or practice with more confidence and clarity.
100-Hour Sequencing and Experiential Anatomy
In this 100-hour course you will learn how to artistically communicate with students to guide them through yoga classes. Create theme-based unique programs that are deeply layered with anatomy and experiential knowledge. Through the asana practices, you will build a three-dimensional library of language and imagery that will spark new realizations in your students.
Asana Sequencing and Inspired Communication
Communication is like conducting a symphony with our words. In order for everyone to play in harmony, we must have a clear internal vision of what we’re trying to convey. We build and clarify this internal vision through our own embodied experience, which we can then translate and transmit to our students through our cueing. From this anchor, we can teach with greater depth, potency, creativity, and spontaneity.
Without the support of actualized experience, teaching can remain flat and dispassionate.
Sequencing will be a deep exploration and uncovering of the truths that are born from and within your personal practice. In this 100-hour journey, you will engage in concentrated studies in sequencing and theming. By positioning these technical studies within a greater experience of practice, you will integrate this understanding and be able to act as a transmitter of the teachings.
Why do you need, or want more anatomy?
Studying anatomy is about more than learning the muscles and bones; it is about recognizing our own holistic, multi-dimensional embodiment. When we integrate anatomical knowledge experientially, we develop an inspired and organic ability to communicate a new depth of understanding.
A deeper understanding of how the body works and functions as a community of muscles firing together allows you to have intelligent sequencing and a conversation with students’ bodies to better guide them through their journey in your class.
Through studying advanced integrative anatomy in this course, we cover all the superficial mover muscles and the deep stabilizing muscles; and how the myofascial network of the body “connects the dots” and inspires strength and grace.
After every group of muscles, we palpate the muscle so you can actively find the origin, insertion and differentiate the muscles when grouped together. This is followed by myofascial discovery and release, ending with an asana practice focused on targeting and cueing for the specific muscle groups. Once something has been felt and digested from within, this information can develop potency and be integrated into wisdom.
