Danny is an area native who returned to his hometown after years of traveling the globe as a professional dancer and singer. He discovered meditation in 1987, responding to the heightened concentration, increased breath control and expanded awareness which accompany the practice. Danny has studied a number of yoga philosophies, and he incorporates several into his teaching methods, which center on Anusura yoga and its emphasis on opening the heart. He also developed a strong background in Iyengar yoga, which focuses on the proper form, and Ashtanga yoga, a vigorous practice that incorporates flowing, dance-like sequences of Hatha postures. The desire to share his knowledge of yoga led him to the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, California where he completed his teacher training. White Lotus teaches a non-dogmatic synthesis of classical and contemporary techniques drawn from the best major systems today. Danny has been living the principals of yoga for over 20 years and hopes to inspire others to transform their lives with this ancient body of knowledge. His classes offer flowing sequences of dynamic asanas, combined with pranayama, meditation, and the most important element of all: Fun.
