Hello and Welcome! I'm Danica.

I am the luckiest mom of two divine Ethiopian kids and one energetic Saluki rescue, married to a French guy, who kissed me back to life.  My life's purpose is to serve, through yoga mainly, but most importantly through intentionally paying attention, caring and helping others

(humans & animals) in whichever way I can. I have been living and working in Dubai, UAE since 2009, and 3 years in between at Malaysia. 

I am here to help you on your yoga journey, by offering guidance both  in person and online, as well through my Signature Yoga Retreats.

As a devoted yoga practitioner and teacher, I've dedicated over 20 years to nurturing my well-being and inner growth, and then extending my teachings onto my students. My teaching style encompasses a harmonious blend of invigorating vinyasa flow classes and nourishing yin and restorative yoga sessions. My classes always encompass the slow grounded meditation, breath work and a well balanced asana practice.

"Danica is simply the best yoga teacher I've ever had.

I recommend her to every single body who looks for physical and spiritual development. Danica gave me private classes when I was in vacation in Dubai, and ever since I came back in Switzerland I am trying to find a teacher as inspiring as her. She is an incredible loving person who takes time to listen and to put her client's desire in practice. Yoga classes with her are a pure pleasure (her vegan carrot cake as well if you have the

occasion to test it!)."
