Since an early age, movement and fitness have been an important part of Danielle’s life. So it was only natural for her first job to be working in a yoga studio in Brooklyn, NY. It was love at first downward facing dog. Danielle’s over 20 years of teaching have spanned from working in educational institutions, busy corporate gyms, residential gyms, and healthcare settings.
All was great, except, I was suffering from painful and embarrassing acne, gastrointestinal issues, and brain fog in my teens and into adulthood. As I studied the relationship between food and health, there was a light bulb that went off. How could I heal my body from within by consuming nutritious foods? I knew that eating plants was important but needed to get serious about changes in my diet.
This led me to learn how to cook my meals at home and be able to still enjoy eating out by navigating through social settings. Now it was time to apply what I learned in my coaching practice. I want to share my secrets of living more in tune with my body and mind. We may experience some setbacks in our life but it is how we get back on the train of wellbeing that matters most.
Danielle has created Fit N Play Mama LLC to bridge the gap between adult and children’s fitness and plant-based nutrition. As a certified fitness/ yoga expert and plant-based nutrition educator, she has focused on teaching playful movements and engaging cooking demos to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. You will often catch Danielle with her daughter having fun exercising, crafting up some delectable plant-based meals, and enjoying quality time together in their videos. Now it is your turn to experience the powerful shift of play and joy in your life!
