Danika turned to yoga after retiring as a competitive gymnast and soccer player. First drawn to the physical aspects, she used asanas to maintain her strength and flexibility. After completing her YTT program and obtaining a degree in kinesiology from Brock University, Danika has continued her ongoing education through continuous workshops and conferences. She focuses on alignment and anatomy.
Classes with Danika target the whole body. While flexibility is important, Danika ensures that strength is built within that range of motion to prevent susceptibility to injury.
