Daniela has been practicing yoga since 2010, and teaching since 2016. She is a certified 200 hour yoga teacher with Hari-Om Yoga School, and also a certified yin yoga teacher (100 hours) with the 5 Elements International School of Yoga, led by Vinay Jesta, and with Sarah Lo, fellow teacher of Sarah Powers.

Her classes bring awareness into the body, and are directed to reach that perfect balance between strength and ease, yin and yang, our feminine and masculine sides.

Daniela’s approach to yoga combines a focus on alignment and strength, with a feeling of surrender and ease. She welcomes everyone to the mat, so they may come back to their True Self and live the light of yoga into their daily lives.

Daniela includes in all her classes the concepts of conscious breathing (Pranayama), Mindfulness Meditation and Sound Healing.

She is currently based in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, on the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica, where she teaches daily yoga classes at Vista Verde Guesthouse; and she also spend a lot of time in Europe, where she organizes various yoga retreats and events.
