Daniel

Daniel
Daniel comes to Pure Yoga from Vancouver, Canada where he grew up singing, acting and taking advantage of any opportunity to throw his body around the rainy soccer fields of the Vancouver area. As a result of his background in competitive sports, he learned to accept chronic pain as a daily part of his life. After almost a decade of living with chronic back and knee pain, a good friend introduced Daniel to Bikram Yoga. After one class he was hooked. He immediately felt a difference and after only a few classes, the pain he had experienced for so long began to subside. Even more profound than the physical benefits were the mental clarity and inner peace that he felt after each practice. Yoga had such a deep effect on his life that he decided to become a teacher to help others empower and heal themselves. Daniel completed the Bikram Yoga teacher training in fall 2003 and has been teaching ever since. His advice to anyone curious about yoga is to simply try a class before writing it off as something you can't do.

Daniel's Books

Anatomy of Hatha Yoga
H. David Coulter
A comprehensive explanation of the body mechanics of hatha Yoga. This book is a great resource for explaining the physical science of yoga, and a good tool for both teachers and students.

The Power of Now
Eckhart Tolle
A great book with a simple and profound idea - by immersing ourselves in the present moment, we can realise our own inherent enlightenment. By realising that the only moment we actually ever get to experience is the present one, we can free ourselves from attachment to the past, grasp the power of now and realise that each living moment is an expression of the divine joy within each of us.

Daniel's Tips

1. Patience, patience and more patience. In a society focused on competition and achievement it can be difficult to practise yoga free from the concept of it "getting us somewhere". If we are so focused on getting deeper into an asana, we can miss the real value of our yoga practice.
2. Practise diligently but be compassionate. Yoga is a journey, not a destination so try to focus on the moment as opposed to the result. As you practise you will experience many ups and downs, both physically and emotionally. Learn to accept whatever comes out of your practice as having value. Just because a particular class did not "feel as good" as it did yesterday doesn't mean it has any less value to you. Know that your practice is an act of love and compassion towards yourself, practise with an open heart, and your journey will unfold just as it is meant to.
3. It doesn't matter when you start. All that matters is that you do.
