So, you have been curious about Yoga and think it could help you. You don’t feel like your best self, which leaves you with little energy left for anyone or anything else. You’re so busy and stressed out, you just don’t feel fully there for those you love and your community.
You want to improve your health, get out of pain and relax. The only thing is, you’re not sure if Yoga is for you. You’re not super fit or flexible. Or You have back pain and aren’t sure if Yoga can be made accessible to you?
Maybe you’ve tried a DVD on your own and got lost, or wrangled up your courage and went to one of those big trendy Yoga studios. When you got there you felt a bit like the odd one out; you didn’t have a fancy Yoga outfit and felt a bit uncomfortable? It felt more like boot camp than Yoga! You didn’t get any guidance or help from the teacher. You felt sort of lost in the shuffle and left class feeling a bit deflated, not sure if this whole ‘Yoga thing’ is for you.
Believe that you need to be super flexible or skinny to practice Yoga.
Are all about the latest Yoga trends and can’t get enough of hot Yoga, AcroYoga, and the like.
Are mostly interested in Yoga because you want to get your ‘Yoga body in time for swimsuit season’, get a ‘Yoga butt’, detox … or anything else along those lines.
Then I’ve got nothing for you.
But if you…
Are more likely to wear Chuck Taylors than Lululemon. You have more tattoos than Yoga Pants. And want to learn Yoga in a way that is accessible, welcoming, and fun (you might even laugh in my classes)
Then I’m your girl.
I’m an expert in teaching those who aren’t human pretzels — when you can’t reach the floor, I have ways of making the floor reach you!.
So know this: whether you are in my public classes or a private session, you’ll get personalized attention. I want to get to know you and make sure that you’re getting the most out of Yoga in a way that works specifically for your body.
Who I am….?
Hi and Welcome. I’m Nyk Danu. I became a Yoga teacher because Yoga has rocked my world! My Yoga practice has made me stronger and more flexible (I didn’t start off that way).
I had a lot of back pain, injuries, and tightness. In fact, I had to use chairs for a lot of my poses in the beginning! But I’m so grateful for that experience because it means that I can empathize in a way that comes only through direct experience.
You can learn more about me and how I found Yoga on my Me page.
