Hi, I'm Danielle and I'm a recovering perfectionist.
My first yoga class made me angry. Who has time to stand there and breathe?!
I'd spent the previous 10 years in constant motion, hustling for my worthiness. I was a relentless doer.
Stillness made my skin crawl.
(Side note: it still does some days, but more on that later.)
Twelve years later, I am an RYT 200 certified yoga teacher.
My practice has taught me the importance of:
p a t i e n c e,
s p a c e,
g o i n g s l o w.
It's taken a long-time to break the cycle of always trying to perform, perfect, and prove. It's still daily work for me.
Yoga gives me a still point in a turning world. A place to be, rather than do.
My classes focus on tuning-in and nurturing yourself. Yoga is a chance to extend the same kindness we give to others to ourselves.
