Uniting Mind, Body, and Creative Expression

"everyone creates a masterpiece called life"


Yoga for Everyone

Yoga unites the mind, body, and spirit  in a way that eases tension, promotes health and over all well being. Regular practice will help you go inside to open up limitless possibilities for  your fullest potential of living.  Props and support, such as The Great Yoga Wall  are an integral part of Dani's teaching so that you can  align and support yourself for growth from the inside out !


Enhance Your Wellness

Yoga is a great way to improve your endurance  and awareness in other physical activities and daily life. After a run, hike or heavy workout, or just sitting at your desk, yoga will help your body relax while stretching, strengthening, and lengthening the body with the breath.  Dani's classes and private practices focus on the expansion, allignment and growth of your asana practice as well as using the 8 limbs of yoga as a map for  shedding light on your life 's potential.  She loves teaching to all different levels and has gravitated to finding creative ways in helping her students feel  their practice from the inside out on and off the mat.


Express Yourself

Yoga not only helps improve your body, but also helps with mindfulness and concentration . Medition is important to take a break from daily life in order to focus on yourself, get clarity and tap into creative energy.   Dani is an artist who  came to mat because of  personal health reasons. It was after her first yoga class with Lisa Bennett Matkin that the self realization of being in  a yogic state can occur with moving her body. She has always felt that union with self expression in creating her art.  After years of having a personal  practice  wth guidance from many Hudson Valley teachers Dani did her teacher  training  with Amy Pearce-Hayden. It is her passion, joy  and focus to help people realize their creative potential can be unleashed through Yoga. She   brings forth  connecting different techniques  in the yoga practice with fundamentals in art making to create a safe experience  to enjoy the flow of creative expression !
