About the Instructor
Her journey towards serving as a teacher....
From the young age of 14 Danielle was drawn towards spirituality when she discovered a book on Mediation, it was then that she began practicing and had her first transcendental experience which led her to delve deeper into the study of Yogic Philosophy.
Her love and passion for Hatha Yoga began at the age of 18 when she started attending classes held in a basement flat in Kensington, London.
She continued to practice Yoga with her teacher and Guru Lorraine Muzas for 7 years. The peace she felt captured her heart so much that she felt a strong passion to share what she had learnt and serve society.
In 2008, Danielle gained her first Hatha Yoga certificate and re-located to Cyprus to spread the knowledge she had learnt.
Danielle feels honored and grateful to have learnt from humble teachers, she traveled to Himalayas In 2011 where she studied a further teachers training course with Bhooma Chaitanya (BHOOMAJI) and Swami Yogeshananda (Philosophy & Sanskrit Scholar) they introduced her to Sivananda Yoga.
Danielle is a certified sound healing teacher, she first learnt this beautiful therapy in Rishikesh and then traveled to Nepal and took a sound healing workshop with her most inspirational teacher Sri Anup from Nada Yoga School in Pokhara.
In 2016, Danielle left her freelance teacher life in Cyprus and moved to Dubai to join Yoga House as a Lead Instructor and is delighted to teach retreats, workshops, courses and group classes incorporating creative sequencing, peaceful music, sound healing and calming energy. She also specialises in teaching private sessions.
Danielle uses yoga as a tool to help students work through injuries, imbalances, stress, anxiety and as a means to bring about a sense of peace and wellness in their life-style.
Some favorite mantras of hers are:
"loka samastah sukhino bhavamtu"
Which means “May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.”
From the sacred scripture "The Bhagavad Gita" (song of the Divine).
"Hari Om Tat Sat"
Which translates to:
Hari = “the manifest cosmos,”
AUM = “the unmanifest invisible realm"
Tat = “that”
Sat = “the ultimate reality.”
Therefore, this mantra helps awaken us to our true self. We remind others and ourselves that we are more than just our thoughts and physical appearance. We hold in our awareness the truth that we are both an individual being and also from a higher source or consciousness beyond our reality.
