As a Certified Life & Leadership Coach Danielle is dedicated to supporting you on your path to a happy and healthy life. Danielle’s health journey began after the birth of her son twenty years ago. She lost weight through planning her meals and exercise, eventually becoming a certified personal trainer and physical education teacher at a private school in Virginia. Danielle found yoga as a method of stress reduction and to relieve back pain. She is a Certified Yoga Teacher that is registered through the Yoga Alliance and an ACE Certified Personal Trainer specializing in Fitness Nutrition.
Danielle is trained by Tiffany Cruikshank, the founder of Yoga Medicine. Yoga Medicine is an anatomy based program that looks to intertwine western medicine and yoga. Therapeutically educated yoga teachers offer individualized programs for clients looking for comfort from “dis-ease” by increasing an individual’s pain free range of motion and promoting a consistent meditation and movement practice. This education enhances Danielle’s ability to work one-on-one with clients and their healthcare provider in order to find a yoga practice that is a therapeutic compliment to medical care. Since her yoga certification, she has completed advanced trainings on Yoga for Seniors, Trauma Sensitive Yoga, the Health and Dysfunction of the Spine, Women’s Health and Infertility, Myofascial Release and iRest Yoga Nidra. In September of 2018 she completed Yoga Medicine’s Cadaver Lab Dissection for Yoga Teachers. In April 2020 she is looking forward to a trip to Charleston, South Carolina to study Yoga for Mental Health & Wellness.
Danielle is a professional artist and knows the creative process is healing. She paints in oil, watercolor and acrylic. During her master program she studied Artist Meditation and the benefits of making art everyday as a part of her stress reduction and professional growth plan. Her art is available for purchase through her online store.
