Yoga has been a part of Daniela's life for over 10 years. Her first yoga training was in Brazil with DeRose Method in 2007 where she also gained her first teaching experience in 2008 running a 7-week beginners course before moving to Europe, firstly teaching in Madrid, and later in England where she actually resides and additionally completed her 200-hour training with YMCA. In 2017, Daniela combined her passion for travel and yoga, designing and teaching at six yoga retreats in England, Spain and most recently in Chamonix, in a blended ski+yoga retreat.

"A magical week in the mountains"
The location was great just a few minutes walk from Chamonix centre or the nearest ski lift.
The food was wholesome and healthy and the chalet was more than comfortable.
As someone traveling on their own I made some lovely new friends. Also being completely new to yoga it was a great introduction to the practice which catered to all levels.
Combining the yoga with skiing was really good, even if it did involve getting up early on the morning! I partucually enjoyed the evening session which focused on stretching after a hard day on the slopes.
Cynthia was a fab host.

"Incredible 8 day yoga/ski retreat in Chamonix"
What an incredible ski and yoga holiday! I booked this trip as a solo traveller, after chatting with lovely Cintia. I enjoyed meeting and spending time with my fellow yogi housemates -- a good mix of like-minded travellers. We started each day with a strong yoga practice, followed by a day of skiing (cross country skiing, walking, or rest), and ended the night with a restorative yin yoga session. It was challenging, but just what I needed to recover from a busy period at work.
The chalet is a great space for socialising and yoga classes, is right in the village, and a very short walk from the Chamonix slopes. I stayed in one of the shared double rooms upstairs. It was spacious, with closet space, and a large en suite bathroom.
Cintia went the extra mile to make sure we were happy and engaged with the skiing and yoga practice. She prepared healthy, veggie meals for us, and took our likes and requirements into consideration, making sure we had enough breakfast for a day of skiing, and sandwiches to take on the slopes. Dinner was always delicious and felt like a family meal at home.
I left the 8 day retreat feeling so strong --- physically from the core work and skiing, and mentally from the meditation and yogi fellowship. Thank you, Cintia for an amazing retreat in an amazing locale! XX

"Found a new home, I'm richer now"
Daniela's Blue Hose Yoga is an amazing emotional experience. Cannot not just call it a 'yoga retreat 'cause is so much more than this... Daniela has a great instinct, she is gifted with a strong empathy and a lovely sense of beauty, she is gonna provide exactly what you need by the time you need it. The yoga was great, the house was extremely beautiful, the food was delicious, everything was fresh, homemade and genuinely made with love. The 'retreat' was very open to all our needs, we had strong sessions when needed, quiet and deep meditations to balance, interesting little teachings about mindfullness methods, olistic physical practices and much more! We also went for excursions exploring the place.... I went for the 'ibiza Retreat' and Dani made sure we could visit the most iconic places of the island... nature, wild spots and beaches but also little nights-out, lovely restaurants and beach clubs.. but again the thing I liked the most was that nothing was mandatory, everything was decided by all of us and we were so close that we didn't even need a majority... almost everytime we had the same mood about everything and this was the real goal of the whole retreat I guess... so, good job Dani! Oh and really need to mention this because not all of the retreats include this thing.... Dani was always available to personally give us a ride everywhere from the airport to the beaches etc etc and that was totally oh her.. people tend to take this for granted but it is not guys!!

"One of my best holidays ever..."
I absolutely loved the retreat that Cintia organised for us. The minute I arrived I felt very welcomed and very well looked after. The villa with swimming pool was really lovely and one could chill well between the yoga practices. All the people from various countries and various walks of life got on very well we enjoyed our chats with Cintia and each other about how we felt after the practices and what our new life goals would be. For me personally this retreat was beginning of my new life journey.
I have not practiced yoga much in the past but after few days I got much stronger and flexible and I am determind to continue with yoga and meditation on regular basis from now on.
During the retreat we were taken to visit beautiful places on the island including the sunset which was lots of fun for all of us.
The vegetarian meals were delicious and very social time to spend time and chat with each other.
This retreat was a life changing experience for me and I could have not wished for a better, kinder and passionate teacher and host Cintia. xx

My first vacation after a long period and I could not choose better. It took me awhile to sit down and write a recommendation just because I did not have words to describe this experience. All the magic starts from the very beginning how I came across this retreat, in contact with Daniela, meeting amazing people and discovering myself. I am doing yoga for few years already, but I could notice improvement already after few classes with Daniela. She has a good sense to see when you need a little bit of push to embers your struggles and to come to poses that you thought you were never able to do it or at least not so soon. Handstands workshops were my favorite! The choice of food for breakfast was great, lunches and dinners were absolutely tasty and covered all the nutritional needs of a vegetarian meal. I could not have asked for a more welcoming, relaxing and beautiful environment and I left feeling renewed and very well cared.

Excellent, friendly and supportive environment. Daniela's classes are a real pleasure. Informative, encouraging, relaxing, and a great work out all in one. High recommended.

Truly amazing break! The villa was located in a lovely quiet area within easy reach of the town center. Pool area was great. Daniela was very welcoming, caring and an excellent yoga teacher! She made everyone feel at home and relaxed. Our group members were of different levels of experience but Daniela's sessions catered to everyone's needs. The food was yummy, healthy and fresh. We visited beaches off the beaten track that were some of the best I've seen and certainly wouldn't have known about if Daniela hadn't taken us there. It was an amazing trip and I will definitely be coming back. Thank you so much, Daniela. Truly inspiring!

I've attended this yoga retreat in Ibiza as a special birthday present for myself as I've turned 40. I've been doing yoga for a while now but with 2 children and a busy life, it is hard to find time for a proper practice. This retreat has given me everything I needed and even exceeded my expectations! Daniela, our host and yoga teacher did everything in her power to welcome us warmly and throughout the retreat, she was always there when we needed her! She is a wonderful, warm person and encouraged us to open up about our problems or struggles with yoga and with our own life. The yoga practices were deep and challenging, we had 3 hours of yoga daily with pranayama and wonderful savasana endings with visualizations. We all challenged ourselves with new postures and perfected our headstands. I love the practice on the beach at sunset and the others just by the pool or in the garden. The villa is well equipped with a swimming pool and the rooms were spacious and we had our own morning fresh orange juice straight from the garden! The food was fresh and healthy, we really enjoyed getting our breakfasts ready in the mornings, learning a few new tips from each other. I hope I can join her retreat soon again, I think Ibiza is a wonderful island to discover more of ourselves. Namaste Daniela and thank you

I loved everything about this retreat from the beautiful villa in Ibiza where we stayed to amazing food, yoga, meditation to people who came on the retreat. It was a wonderful combination of two strong daily yoga classes with Daniela followed by meditation with beautiful vegetarian food. After 7 days, I could feel my strength returning and doing challenging postures that I hadn’t attempted in months. It was an opportunity for me to reflect on my current situation/career and make decisions about my future. I left the retreat feeling so relaxed and rejuvenated. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to attend this retreat and meet Daniela as she is truly an inspirational person and put so much energy into making it work. I would highly recommend this yoga retreat to anyone who wants a relaxing break or to escape from the daily humdrum.
