In early March, my long time friend and yoga teacher made the quick shift to start teaching her yin classes virtually over zoom.. from a farm.. on an island.. with llamas roaming in the background.. to anyone.
Danielle’s style of teaching was the perfect remedy for us, particularly as the world was grinding to a halt from Covid-19. The 90 minute classes invited us to feel into our breath and body – surrendering to a new slower and smaller daily rhythm. And because my kids were coming in and out, Danielle embraced that aspect of home practice and engaged them to practice for as long as they could. Knowing we could show up a bit late or duck out early or stay after class and chat… her openness to being flexible and adaptive is part of what makes her such an awesome teacher and facilitator. Permission to be whatever is truly needed.
