Motivated Yoga Certified Instructor (RYT 500) and Personal Trainer, with background in Pilates-Mat, Total Body Conditioning, Ballet and Modern Dance.
My specific focus is to explain what to feel, how to do each pose correctly and how to breath in it. The goal is to give the practitioner solid bases, to get the best results and grow faster in any practice.
About Yoga: I teach Yoga alignment, Yoga Beginner, Vinyasa Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, and Pranayama (Breathwork)
This is perfect for :
• yoga beginners - to experience the great benefits of yoga and get more consciousness of their body
• yoga intermediate level practitioners - to grow faster in their practice by better explained alignment and by holding poses longer, which will give them the time to improve awareness, strength and breathing.
Also I do total body tone workout, stretching and postural exercise and Pilates Mat and a special kind of workout where I put all this things together, creating exercise that suit at the best the needs of the person in front of me.
Having recovered from serious injuries in the past, I know how key is to take care of our body to live a good life.
That is why I'm strongly motivated to help others to take care of themselves and to understand how much body, mind and life results are interconnected.

I want to tell you my story because I think it helps you understand how we can work together, if there is a good match.
A truck struck my car on a country side road, in the middle of a Winter night and throw it down a hill towards the river. A tree stopped the car before it plunged in the waters and probably saved my life.
I stayed in the crushed car for hours, with broken bones and covered in blood. I thought I would have died, but someone saved me. It wasn't my time.
I was 21, a dancer and a model. I loved just two things: dancing and fashion.
The doctors told me I would have to stop dancing and probably I would have never been able to wear high heels again.
I decided not to believe the doctors.
The recovery was painful, but I recovered and I started dancing again.
A few years later, someone didn't respect a red light, smashed into the car I was as a passenger, killed my friend and left me in coma with fractures and a serious shoulder injury.
But I recovered again.
In total, in the two accidents I had 131 bone fractures, dislocation of the hips, lumbar/sacral hernias and a serious shoulder injury.
And I realized what was important for me in life.
The combination of my experience with dance and injury gave me a special ability to understand exactly how the body works and how to work with it.
Somebody who hasn't that experience, doesn't understand the body to this level, no matter what or how much has studied.
I feel this is sort of a superpower and I want to help people with this.
You can work with your body and make it the best it can be. Actually you have to do it, because you have just one body that you will be in for all your life.
I really believe in exercise and keeping yourself healthy and fit. Because this is key to have the best life that you can have.
And I know that I can help you achieve this. This is my gift and I shall use it.
This is why I am a yoga teacher and personal trainer and I hope we will work together 😊🙏🏼
Very good, professional, she puts energy and passion into what she does.
What I like about Daniela is that she is professional and love her job. She will correct you and make sure you are doing the right pose or exercise. She will understand what you need to feel better and at the end of every lesson you will feel good. Really good!
Im Dylan, 33yo, I met Daniela through an Italian friend when I was looking for a personal trainer to help me to lose weight and built muscle. Daniela has been a life changer for me and I wish she still lived in NYC. I was the kind of person that you would define skinny-fat and the first things she helped me with was my posture and my form during the exercises. Then we slowly added to my training weight lifting and reps. Thanks to her, I have a major control on my body when working out, I improved a lot my strength and stability and finally lost my belly fat. Daniela is the perfect formula between sensibility and powerful energy and I recommend her to anybody that like me, needs help to reach out their dreams of a better body.
Daniela was really special in the way she helped me "feel" in my body how to do the right movement. And this helped enormously in learning how to do them. In fact, she didn't just show me the right movement to do, but adapted her explanation of what I could do (I am not the most flexible person in the world...) and what I should feel in my body. Doing the exercises and yoga positions in this way helped me memorize effortlessly how to move and do the exercise in the right way. And made me use so many muscles... a grea workout. Finally the fact she speaks English and Italian was a bonus for me, making things easier I definitely recommend Daniela!
