A California-native, but nomad at heart, Danielle made her way to Chicago where she vigorously pursued self-discovery and self-development. From the time Danielle was first introduced to yoga, it was a medicine for both her body and her heart. As a result of her own journey, Love and Healing are the forces that deeply guide Danielle and it becomes evident in her teaching. Each session incorporates functional breath work, intention setting, heart-full devotion, and positive affirmations.
Danielle leads alignment-based classes that honor students by allowing them safe space to become curious about their own bodies, their own thoughts, and their own experiences. In teaching Hatha Yoga, Danielle guides her students into the deepest parts of their fascia and their feelings, where healing can be ignited.
Above all else, Danielle is a heart-based community builder who is intentional about creating safe space for women to love, release, and heal.

Karlene is a project manager for heart-based online businesses. Her location-independent vocation has carried her to many corners of the world, but at the moment, Baltimore is her home. She has been fascinated with scheduling, planning and journaling ever since she can recall. She was given her first journal at seven years old, and still has it to this day. In it, you can find unrealistic schedules and ideal morning routines. Fortunately, her planning skills have significantly improved since then!
While working with personal development entrepreneurs, she realized that her project management skills could be combined with these life-changing philosophies to make inner alignment continual and tangible.
Karlene now guides women through the steps to clarifying intentions and putting manifestation into motion by writing it down. Her childhood obsession has blossomed into a transformative practice that she happily shares in workshops and online courses.
