Yoga & Health Teacher/Mentor
Native New Yorker, yogi, spiritual seeker and artist, Danielle does it all.
She graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology with a BS in Advertising and Marketing Communications and AAS Fashion Merchandising Management. Danielle went on to study diamonds, colored stones and pearls at the Gemological Institute of America, completing their Graduate Gemologist program. Danielle has had several freelance positions working with different media outlets as an events correspondent and content creator.
Although, she always imagined herself working in the “fashion industry,” it wasn’t until Danielle started practicing yoga did she feel like she was in the right space. She decided to deepen her practice and immersed herself in “Love Skool”, Laughing Lotus Yoga Center’s 200 hour teacher training. While continuing on her path to healing herself and others, her intuition lead her to Reiki and is trained in Reiki I and II.
Danielle is passionate about volunteering (karma yoga) and has spent many years working as a children’s Art Mentor with Free Arts NYC and New York Therapy Animals. Danielle and her dog Bella are a registered Therapy Animal and R.E.A.D.® (Reading Education Assistance Dogs®) team, who make visits all over NYC to clients of all ages.
Danielle is thrilled to work with her Fusion Academy students and their families, bridging the mind, body, soul connection with academic success!
