Danielle graduated from our Elite Yoga Teacher Training in November 2015.
Danielle currently lives in the beautiful city of San Diego, California. She is currently attending Arizona State University online and majoring in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus on Business. Prior to this, Danielle was born and lived in the Philippines where she competed in meets as a gymnast for the Club Gymnastica Makati for 5 years. She remained active her whole life and participated in soccer, cheer, ballet and hip hop dancing. In 2008, she discovered yoga while still attending high school. Going into college and dealing with the business of life, it was hard not to be weighed down by the stress that the day to day life brought. Trying different styles of yoga (including but not limited to hot yoga, Bikram yoga, yoga sculpt, Yin/Restorative) she was greatly amazed by how yoga has been a great vessel in helping transform her physically, emotionally and most especially mentally. After meeting Alexandra (Alex) Arias, she was hired to work at Women’s Elite Yoga as an Assistant Manager. This has been a great opportunity and a blessing as it helped her stay committed and to nurture her practice. As time went on, Women’s Elite Yoga set up a teacher-training program that Danielle decided to participate in. After hours and dedication and practice, Danielle graduated from the Elite Yoga Teacher Training in November 2015 (ran by Meghan Kruljac, Alyssa Moeller, and Alexandra Arias) and got certified for her 200-HR approved by the Yoga Alliance. Since then Danielle has been teaching for Elite Yoga and has grown even more passionate about the wellness of her community. She has also grown in her managing abilities and has been promoted as Elite Yoga’s Senior Manager.
