Danessa’s yoga journey began when she found herself in the middle of some big life changes. She was laid off from her job in 2008 which spurred her to jump into a weight loss program. She lost 50 pounds and fell in love with fitness, particularly Zumba and yoga. From that point on, her life was completely changed. She completed both her 200 hr yoga teacher training as well as a certification in Bikram Yoga and she has been enjoying the opportunity to connect, exchange energy and guide her students in practice. Outside of teaching fitness and yoga classes, she is an Operations Manager FT and loves spending time with her kitty, Barbie, and traveling whenever possible.
