"Healing happens when we LISTEN to our body. Sometimes, we may require the support of a practitioner who is trained in the art of listening to bodies."
-- Edan Harari (LMT, emotional body therapist and educator)
Danielle is a Licensed Massage Therapist (USA), experienced Yoga Teacher, and Reiki Master currently living and working in Bonn, Germany.
Yoga and meditation became a part of Danielle’s practice in early adulthood to help manage stress and connect to her physical body in a positive way. This newfound connection brought peace of mind which gave space to take on life challenges with strength and lightheartedness as well as encouraging her to explore her passion of yoga and energy healing. In 2015, Danielle traveled to the Sacred Valley of Peru to earn a RYT-200 certification and Reiki II certification. During these travels, she was introduced to other healing modalities of South American shamanism which deepened her connection to energy work. Upon her arrival back home to the US, Danielle began teaching yoga classes and workshops at several studios in South Shore Massachusetts and started her studies of massage therapy at The Massage School in Boston. After graduation, Danielle's path led her to Germany where she created a small wellness practice in the heart of Bonn, “Whole Bodhi Wellness”, in April 2018. In the Autumn of 2018, she received the title of Reiki Master from "the longest practicing Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher on the East Coast [USA]" Libby Barnett. Continuing her yoga education, she received her Yin Yoga Teacher certificate in February 2020 with her teacher, Sylvia Stuck (E-RYT 850hrs). In October 2021, Danielle completed her 300YTT with Katy Scherer and Leni Scherer, earning her 500hr teacher certification and "senior teacher" status at The Vinyasa People Yoga Studio in Bonn. Danielle is dedicated to using all her gifts to help people heal as individuals and as a community.
