In 2008, Danielle started her dance studio, Zeal for Life Dance Company in Matthews, NC, and also became head coach of the UNC-Charlotte 49ers Gold Dusters Dance Team. Becoming a business owner and college coach added needed balance to her life. Soon, Danielle agreed to a suggestion from her college roommate to take a yoga class together. Danielle was hooked after her first experience with yoga.
Danielle practiced yoga for the next few years as her scheduled permitted. In 2015, she enrolled in the teacher-training program at Y2. After completing teacher training and developing a steady yoga practice routine, Danielle clearly saw how yoga benefited her life and dance. “Yoga is an every day dance for me. I get to express myself through movement with my body flowing from one asana to the next. It’s a total liberating experience each and every practice.”
Teaching yoga is not a job for Danielle, but a blessing. She delights in sharing her passion for yoga with others.
