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 and immediately began to teach. She feels lucky to have taught full time with Prana Power Yoga for two years where she fell in love not only with teaching yoga but being part of a yoga community. Danielle’s parents moved to Falmouth, ME in 2007 and after visiting them over the past few years she grew to love the Portland area. In the fall of 2009 she decided to make the move to Maine to be closer to her family and to open Greener Postures Yoga with Heidi MacVane.
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, a training in teaching hip-hop yoga with Lynne Begier, as well as an advanced teacher training with Ame Wren and David Regelin. By continually exposing herself to different programs, workshops and instructors over the years, she has used these experiences as important stepping stones on her yogic path and to inform her own practice and teaching style.
