Danny Coates-Finke

Teacher

I’m Danny! When I came to yoga I was super sad, very confused, and so stiff I could only do a couple of the poses. Now, I still get sad, am often confused, and still can’t do a ton of poses. The difference is I breathe a bit better, and I know I can find peace and pleasure in my practice. I love how yoga brings me back to the beauty of simply existing. Come as you are, and we’ll find where love is growing.

Fun Fact

In college I spent a couple summers as a professional residential window washer. I can still squeegee a plate glass door in one motion without leaving streaks. This rarely comes in handy.
