“Dani/yoga therapy were recommended to me when I was at a very tough spot in my life. Suffering from chronic migraines, constant disequilibrium/dizziness and infertility, I was searching for anything that could help, even just a little. My sessions with Dani were amazing – the one-on-one interaction along with a yoga plan customized for my specific needs was so helpful. I left each week feeling renewed, despite having many stressful and life-altering challenges all at once. In addition to yoga therapy, I was doing PT/dry needling,migraine preventative drug treatment (under the care of my neurologist), and any other little thing that could have a chance at helping me – a multifaceted and strategic approach to start feeling more like myself again. I am so thankful to have had yoga therapy as a facet of my plan. Today, I still suffer from some migraines and dizziness, but have my condition much more managed. And my husband and I have been blessed with three kids (all under age 3)! I would (and have) recommended yoga therapy to anyone struggling with a challenging health condition.”
“The six sessions of Yoga therapy I spent with Dani were such a help to me as she promptly assessed my need to develop a restorative practice instead of what I had come up with . Of course it was exactly what I needed for my body and mind. Dani shared both structural and organ level benefits of each part of the practice . I loved getting the written summaries of our sessions each week so I could practice in between and as references going forward . Taking Yoga Therapy from Dani was a joyful , meaningful , useful and lovely experience.”
“As I reflect over the year I am overwhelmingly grateful. I had struggled and struggled and struggled trying to let go. I was so frustrated with myself and so hard on myself that I was stuck in such a bad place. I knew better, I wanted to let go, but I was stuck and in so much pain. THANK YOU for teaching me to be gentle and compassionate with myself….in doing so I have been able to let go of those things that no longer serve me and breathe in the abundance of life. I don’t know exactly how it works; perhaps as I learned to quiet my mind thru yoga the Holy Spirit is able to work …. I have had such healing….I no longer have pain in my hip. I feel free and blessed. As I learned to exhale deeper and deeper I was able to let go and now I can breathe deeply and fully and receive. And as I receive I am able to give. You and what you do thru yoga are gifts, and I am incredibly grateful.”
