My Name is Dani and I am amazed to welcome you to your yoga journey. I am totally in love sharing all these beautiful changes the gift of Yoga manifests and to make it accessible to each and every"body".
I grew up in Berlin City (Germany) and could never stand still. I was a Dancer, Cheerleader, Referee, Horse Rider and Krav Maga Self defenser. Studying law and working in Businness Consultings was too boring for me, so I was traveling around the world. I got in touch and inspired by the indian culture and traditions and fell in love with Yoga. While serving as a flight attendant and paramedic assistance at the age of 30, I became very ill and no hospital or doctor could cure me. Going deeper into TCM and Yogi Science helped me a lot to get a better understanding of myself, my body, mind and soul.
Everybody is unique, but I am sure yoga will make you feel this amazing way, as it does to me.
I changed my life, moved to Portugal to live in harmony with nature and succeeded my first Yoga Teacher Training. Back to "sync", I felt something is missing as a woman in my practice, knowing that traditional Yoga has been developed and practiced mostly by and for men. Aware of these differences I adapted my yoga more to my needs as a woman and did some further trainings/courses on this subject, as many of my students have had hormonal and/or autoimmune imbalances. I am happy to be able to tailor my yoga to the individual human being. I knew I want to support all these wonderful women out there, so we created a retreat center on a beautiful piece of land. Unfortunately, due to covid impact we had to let it go.
Sometimes I still struggle in life. Especially the last few years have been demanding for all of us. Yoga keeps me balanced and aligned. It gives me the inner freedom to perceive every day as something special and to acknowledge the beauty that unfolds, whatever is arising. It has led me to my true authentic self and helps me to get back to coherence.
// WE ALL DESERVE AN
ABUNDANT AND HAPPY LIFE!
I named my Yoga studio after my first born daughter. Shaya is an old persian Name and means "the beauty", "the happy one", "the dignified" and "the GIFT". That is what Yoga is. And that is what you are. YOU are a gift to this world!
I am trained in different styles of Yoga which all influence my Classes and Retreats (Hatha & Vinyasa 500h, Yin Yoga 50h, Yoga Nidra 100h, Trauma-informed 100h, Fertility Yoga 55h and Restoritiv Yoga 25h). I am always looking for more inspiration. You will constantly find me with a book or while a further training.
I do local 1:1 teachings as well as small groups.
The energy that is created in a retreat is always special to me. The Algarve is not only the home of my heart, its a unique place on earth and I am looking forward to welcoming you here!
To have a Yogini body you need to have a body and do yoga

RETREAT PARTNER - DELIA
29. MAY - 6. JUNE 2024 // ALTANURE
Sometimes I think this year quite a lot of wishes are fulfilled, which were sent from the heart to the universe at another, perhaps more difficult time. This is how I felt the message that came to me from Dani. "Shall we do a retreat together, in one of the most beautiful places in the Algarve?" Before I could even answer, my heart was jumping. Because in my work as a yoga teacher and body coach, there is nothing more beautiful I could imagine than practicing with other women in a beautiful and powerful scenery.
Creating a space where you feel safe. Creating a space where you feel seen and touched. Creating a space where you feel moved. And all of this in an aesthetically elegant setting by the sea. Far away from everyday life and obligations. What a gift.
7 days of retreat and happiness, does not mean that we can ever get away from our tasks. But that we are responsible for mastering our everyday life and our obligations in accordance with ourselves and our well-being. We are allowed to be close to ourselves. And we are allowed to listen to our needs. We must listen to our needs in order to fully develop our femininity, day by day, in our homes, our families and our jobs. That's why, for me, it's not a question or a consideration. Creating space for myself and making investments are for me a clear and wonderful decision that contains a very sustainable gift from which I can draw a lot and for a very long time. My growth is sacred to me.
// IF YOU ALLOW, THEN
I WILL SPOIL YOU THIS WEEK WITH:
Yoga (or other sport) and let the source of power ignite in you. Yes, maybe I will even uncover one of your shadows.
A Thai Yoga or Tuina massage you can experience relaxation, devotion and touch. Through meditation and breathing practice you can penetrate deeper layers.
With a lot of fun and humor I make you laugh at best and learn you not to take everything as seriously as you originally thought.
And anyway we learn from each other much more than we could plan now.
If you feel the call and want to follow it, as I followed Danis, then I am looking forward to welcome you to this special journey.
