Experiencing the Vayus: Yoga's Secret & Ancient Practices
“I am grateful that week 1 (when I was busy) was also online. I appreciated the videos being available online to review after classes. I like the handouts to keep and refer to. I liked the weekly review from previous week (…). I plan to incorporate some more breathwork during my daily flow. Since breathwork is challenging for me, I want to continue to find comfort in the practice.” Louise, Oct 2022, Newmarket ON
“I love the breathing/mind/body connections. It really made me have a whole new loved appreciation for how beneficial yoga is for me. I feel like I can use these lessons in so many areas of my life. I am feeling more in control during day to day life; better sleep; more patient; more activity and effective – getting organized, getting things done, less tired during the afternoon dip. I plan on using the tools learned to feel more grounded, to change mood, to address my issues (ex. needing focus, disconnection, sadness) and having the ability to treat, alleviate or change them (…). I loved the last class!!! I feel sorry for the people who missed it. It was awesome. The sequences were incredibly helpful. It’s amazing knowing nothing to the final effects of the last class.” A Fall Series Class Participant, Oct 2022, Newmarket, ON
“I have been using the Apana Mudra every day. It has brought me calmness and stress reduction. I also found that the Apana Vayu breathing practice has helped decrease cramping and discomfort during my menstrual cycle.” A Fall Series Class Participant, Oct 2022, Newmarket, ON
Yin Wisdom Yoga Series
“Very successful and enjoyable series. Thank you! I liked a few things: the development of the practice week after week; the “yin” focus was just what I needed; the consistency of the group with the same participants. I’ve had a lot of stress lately. It really has helped me to relax. I’ve slept better. It’s also given me some good tools to work with from home.” Candis Feb 2023, Newmarket ON
“I enjoy a class that allows the student time to be with a pose. It makes the class enjoyable and this series was that. It met my expectation. It helped to bring awareness to my postures and when I may be going beyond my edge; that I must continue to be in tune with my body, try and understand what’s happening and choose or create the adjustment when necessary. It continues to build on my personal theme of awareness and mindfulness in my yoga practice.” G.T. Feb 2023, Aurora, ON

"I always feel so peaceful and grounded, ready to go. I love the variety, the images, openness, the connectiveness...on and on! I always want to come back. With so much gratitude!

Intro to Meditation
"Very welcoming, relaxed atmosphere, no judgment. Felt comfortable to meditate with strangers. The class went by too fast. The class helped quiet my mind, it reminds me to live consciously and be more present in my daily activities and interactions with others."
Lisa, Newmarket, ON
"I liked that this class helped me to start meditating by myself. It helped me to stop and do it. More calming, more in tune with myself."
Jackie, Uxbridge, ON
"The instructor was warm, genuine, respectful of participants, good sense of humour. These qualities assisted a rather diverse group to work, together and separately. The class helped me see the value of meditation, to create times of inner quiet and focus, and to appreciate how this might also affect a family member. The class always went quickly. The handouts were useful, well-written, clear, a good way to practice techniques learned in class."
G.L., Newmarket, ON
"It is much easier to meditate at home now, been trying to meditate for 3 years, now I have a technique that works. I loved the techniques that I didn't know were techniques. I gained insight into my life. I can communicate with my inner spark. I understand more what "they" expect of me."
Dianne, Newmarket, ON
"I felt very relaxed and calm, and full of positive energy. I liked everything! This class helped me be more aware of my thoughts and learn how to manage my emotions. Thank you for sharing your knowledge."
"I learned a different way of thinking about things. This class helped me stay focused."
"The class felt comfortable and enjoyable. The class helped me relax, breathe, and let go of issues."

Jackie Craig, Uxbridge, ON
"I liked the messages - very powerful integration of movement with the message. I liked it all."
Barbara, Newmarket, ON
"I liked the symbolic nature. Applying symbolic feelings and situations to yoga poses. This class really helped me forgive past tensions in my life."
Laura Brown, Newmarket, ON
Other Yoga Testimonials
"I can't believe I have been taking yoga classes with Daniele for almost 3 years! I remember when I started, I was so out of shape, I did not think I would ever be able to do all the yoga positions, and here I am today doing downward dog with no problem at all. I have enjoyed the balance of the physical and spiritual journey, I don't think I would get that with an instructor through a gym or with a program with the township. I look forward to more classes with Daniele as my guide."
Janet G., Mount Albert, ON
"I've been enjoying yoga with Daniele for almost 3 years. Her style of yoga provides a very special blend between the physical movements and spiritual meditation that optimizes my well-being. Her yoga practice is always different based on themes which keeps me very motivated. The benefits I obtain on the physical aspect are more flexibility, greater strength, and no more arthritis pain in the joints, to name a few. While the yoga nidra has provided me with incredible inner peace and calmness, it has taught me to meditate and to bring my blood pressure to a normal level. No matter how stressed or anxious I am before yoga, I always walk out from it feeling so peaceful and calm, just like walking on clouds. Yoga with Daniele has helped me regain my health back therefore moving forward, it will always be a very important part of my life. Thank you so much for helping me better my life, you're amazing!"
Rose Marie, Mount Albert, ON
"I've been taking Daniele's yoga classes for almost a year now, and I can't say enough great things about her and the class. She truly customizes each of her classes based on the needs and wants of the participants, and I really like the class size and individual attention that comes from this. Since starting yoga with Daniele, it's truly changed my life for the better in many ways. The knowledge and techniques I have learned from taking her class have carried over into many aspects of my life and have helped me achieve a more balanced and peaceful life. I also especially love the class "themes" each week which she puts great thought into."
Val, Mount Albert, ON
"I'm 56, never tried Yoga before and I'm loving it. In our small personal sessions, Daniele encourages us to do what our body is comfortable with, it doesn't matter what the person on the mat next to us is able or not able to do, feel your own body. After the class I feel soooo limber, relaxed, and ready for a great day. I have used her breathing techniques quite a few times to relieve tension. If you have never tried Yoga, like myself, I highly recommend Daniele as your instructor. I have been taking her classes for 5 months so maybe now I can be called a "Yogi"."
