Before moving to Portland Daniel’s path lead him exploring and studying around the world for 5 years and along the way yoga practice and the path became one story. Spending time in communities where permaculture and yoga were staples of everyday life instilled the practice in him and sparked a drive to study ashtanga in Mysore under the guidance of B.N.S. Iyengar, M.V. Chidananda and Ajay Kumar. Returning to the United States after one trip he was was embraced by a yoga community in Eugene; Dharmalaya, that inspired his drive to offer guidance to others in their practice and on his next trip to Mysore Daniel did a 200 hour hatha TTC with Noah Mckenna.
Daniel revels in an endless pursuit of expression through music and art; practicing flamenco guitar and dance, ballet, stained glass, writing and puppetry. Growing and eating food are also some of his favorite things.
Classes with Daniel can range from grounding introspection to more dynamic and heated flows. He likes to bring attention to breath work, bandhas, and finding ease in the poses.
