Daniel started to deepen his yoga practice in 2009. He became interested in infusing his career as a dancer and circus artist with the science of yoga, amazed at how he could preserve his well-being on a portable mat and found that the space is wider within the inner-self. He decided to become a yoga instructor so that he could use his talents to benefit anyone outside the performing arts field, regardless of their fitness level. With a professional background in contemporary dance, partner acrobatics and aerial arts, he used to be found hanging on ropes and silks 10 meters off the ground – now he also stands on the mat, living the stability and serenity of the earth. Currently he performs an acrobatic hand-to-hand act with his wife and daughter, which has received international awards.
