Daniela De la Garza
Dani describes herself as a very happy and grateful person. She discovered yoga in January of 2013 at the studio where she practiced aerial silks. To Dani, teaching is guiding; throughout the postures and breath, always aware that the practice of yoga is a personal journey. Teaching makes her very happy, but the most important thing about it is that it allows her to remain a student and keep learning from others day by day. Yoga changed her life, and as a teacher what she wants most is to become part of the journey of many people, to sow a seed of love in each person.
