Exercise and movement disciplines including ballet, dance as well as martial arts have always been a part of Danielle’s life since childhood. However, it wasn’t until a friend reintroduced her to yoga that she found her soul’s true purpose. Almost immediately, she started to dedicate her time and energy in developing her yoga practice. It was only natural that she extended her passion to teaching yoga.
Jamaican-born with Haitian roots, Danielle moved to Haiti in July, 2012. Although it was primarily to open Haiti's first yoga studio, Project Zen with Haitian based partners, Danielle also wanted to reconnect with her father's homeland. A dream she had from she was a little girl on her first visit to the island.
In 2014, after the short lived collaboration at Project Zen, Danielle co-founded, Ayiti Yoga Co. (AYC). AYC offers classes, retreats and workshops, a youth outreach program and yoga related events. AYC strives to build and nurture partnerships in order to spread the practice to the Haitian community.
Although she continues to teach Vinyasa and Power Yoga which are the foundation of her practice, Danielle’s teachings has evolved to a more personalised instruction with keen attention to alignment and safety. Her private classes include a therapeutic based style for those with limitations or injuries. Her warm-hearted and vivacious style encourages her students to embrace and accept all the gifts of Yoga. Classes are offered at her space, yogawithdanielle @ Morne Calvaire and other locations.
