Danielle started practicing yoga regularly at Prana Power Yoga in 2004 where she met her current business partner, Heidi MacVane. In 2007, she completed her first teacher training with Open Doors in Weymouth, MA. She feels lucky to have taught full time with Prana Power Yoga in the Boston area, where she loved being part of a yoga community. In the fall of 2009 she decided to make the move to Maine to be closer to her family and open Greener Postures Yoga with Heidi.

Danielle graduated from James Madison University with a BS in Health Assessment and Promotion, and completed a 10-month program to become a certified Holistic Health Counselor at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in NYC. In addition to her first teacher training, Danielle completed a 200-hour teacher training with Jacqui Bonwell in 2011, as well as multiple advanced teacher trainings with Boston-based teacher Ame Wren, anatomy guru Julia Tirabassi, and Master Iyengar teacher Kofi Busia. She studies regularly with Erin Ehlers in Kittery, Maine, who she views as one of her most brilliant yoga teachers and mentors. Danielle strives to continue to learn about the vastness of yoga by exposing herself to different workshops and instructors. Her intention is to lead informative classes with clear explanation where students can delve into their own physical experience, learn more about themselves and their bodies, and leave their mats with a greater sense of strength and clarity.
