About this pro

I am a certified Astanga yoga instructor. I was certified in 2013. I do not work at a studio. I have classes outside, at schools, at residential rec centers. I like to go outside the box and be all inclusive to yoga.

My seasonal sunset yoga class is outside by the lake. Doing yoga outside breathing in the fresh lake air is very helpful when practing yoga.

My classes are beginners level yoga. I love to bring new people to discover yoga at a proper beginners level. I do not advocate someone who does yoga for the first time to enter and do a all levels, higher level flow or hot yoga. When we decide to embark on yoga, we should enter it in an easy fashion and then slowly grow from there. 

I love to instruct, demonstrate and assist in the poses of my yoga classes. I emphasis on focus, mindfulness, alignment, core and breathing. With breathing, I incorporate exercises that help heal and stay focus on oneself. 

Practicing and teaching yoga to others is a wonderful thing. I love teaching students who think that because they are this or that or do this or that, that yoga is not for them. There are all levels of yoga that everyone can do! And when a student discovers that, it is an amazing feeling to me. And to them, as well!

    I have attended several of Danielle's yoga sessions and each time I come away feeling relaxed and refreshed. Her classes are acceptable for all levels. She is very good about offering up modifications to make poses easier or suggestions to help challenge yourself. Danielle has an easy going way about herself which extends into her classes and makes them very enjoyable.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I fully and verbally instruct each pose. I demonstrate and instruct an alternative to each pose. I help assist the student to align in the pose. I ask if there are any restrictions or ailments we can work through. I love to ask for feedback during and after the practice!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a 200H certified Astanga yoga instructor. I took a communications class in school. I work and volunteer with the public in various ways. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My Sunset Yoga is a $5 minimum donations class. My other classes can range from $5-15 classes. A good pricing system compared to studio instructors. I am there to help, not to get paid well. 


How did you get started teaching?

In 2012, I took yoga classes as an alternative to medications for pain and anxious. After just several classes, I was feeling the benefits!  I knew right then that I wanted to help others discover it! I jumped into training and was certified in March of 2013. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students of all ages and all sizes. That's what great about teaching beginners yoga, discovering that anyone who wants to can do it!


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I just had a yoga event class at a local winery (John Christ Winery in Avon Lake). We had a nice size class full of people of all ages and sizes. I  co-instructed with my friend and former yoga training classmate. Just for $15, we offered yoga, wine, juice, foods and raffle for gifts. I think it is lovely to come together after yoga and interact with each other while enjoying some wine and food!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

If you are brand new to yoga, please choose an instructor who is focused on beginners level yoga. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Are you new?

Do you have any ailments or limitations? 

Do you prefer a lower or higher level yoga?

Would you need any equipment, like straps or blocks?
