Jerrod is a very knowledgeable teacher. He customizes each class on the fly according to what the students in the class need. He provides options and modifications to meet the needs of each student. As a fellow teacher, I can say this is much more difficult than coming with a class that was prepared in advance without knowing your audience/what specific issues they are dealing with. Yin Yoga is very challenging for some students because it requires the student to slow down and hold poses longer. In a world that is always moving, finding stillness can be difficult. There are so many benefits for the mind and body when we slow down. We have become human do-ings rather than human beings. I have found much personal benefit to learning how to just be. Highly recommend Jerrod, Yin Yoga and the Yoga Center of Steamboat.
Danielle’s yoga and healing journey began around 7 years ago. She was initially curious about meditation as a way to ease her anxiety and navigate life transitions. Eventually while a graduate student for social work she found herself in a yoga studio. Having experienced the mental health benefits of physical activity like running in the past, the combination of movement, breath, and stillness was transformative for her. Yoga and its community became an integral part of her life.
Danielle completed her 200hr teacher certification in an immersive program in Panamana with a focus on therapeutic yoga. As a mental health and addictions counselor, Danielle has taught trauma-informed yoga classes and believes in the mind-body-spirit healing process. She will be completing an upcoming training in Polyvagal Theory in Therapeutic Yoga and continuing to seek out opportunities to grow as a student and teacher. Danielle’s goal of teaching is to ensure a safe, light-hearted, and supportive environment.
Off the mat, Danielle enjoys exploring outdoors with her dog Leela, reading, listening to music, and drinking tea with loved ones.
