DANIELLE KURTZ – YIN YOGA TEACHER
Describe what you do and also WHY you do it.
I am a Yin Yoga teacher, Reiki Practitioner and doTERRA Essential Oil Educator. I teach workshops, private sessions and retreats weaving in all three modalities with an intention to connect you to a deeper sense of calm, release stress and invite in more of your highest self. I do it because I believe we are all being called to show up in the world as our best selves right now. The more tools we have to support this, the better.
What is your methodology and style?
My teaching, either yoga or essential oils, encourages people to go deep within and trust their own innate wisdom and intuition.
When did you know that this is what you wanted to do? How did you discover it?
I have always loved movement. My dance classes in college are some of my most favorite memories. My Mother took me to my first yoga class when I was 18 and it’s been an amazing journey from there. I’ve studied all kinds of yoga from many amazing teachers around the world. The thread that connects all of them for me is each class I’ve ever taken has brought me a little bit closer to myself. To my true self. One style wasn’t better than the other. They all served me in the moment and some of my deepest “aha” moments came to me during those classes. I didn’t decide to take a teacher training until my Son was born. I did it for myself and for him. I realized if I wanted him to live his highest truth it meant I had to as well, so I decided to dive deep into what I loved. The offering, my teaching emerged from that as well as opportunities to teach and serve. So I listened and trusted that this is what I’m supposed to be doing. About one year into teaching yoga and offering reiki I discovered doTERRA and their incredible essential oils. They offered me amazing tools to take my self care to a higher level. Now I teach others how to use the oils to support their emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing. How to get rid of toxins in their homes and clean with the oils. Being able to be your best self in more moments is at the core of what I offer. I share what is working for me.
What do you wish other people knew about what you do?
I wish other people knew how profound the impact is when they make the choice to take care of themselves. When we take a moment to slow down, listen to our bodies, nourish ourselves with natural solutions, fill ourselves with what brings us joy, we can show up in the world as our best selves in more moments. Your self care is your gift to the planet.
What is the most rewarding part of what you do?
It is a deep honor to work with people who are ready to explore the wisdom that lies within their own bodies and let that wisdom be what drives them forward in their lives. Watching people’s lives change because they decided to uplevel their self-care is a joy of mine.
How could someone’s life benefit from what you offer?
The empowerment to listen and make choices for yourself that come from the innate wisdom inside of you is the gift you will receive from my offerings. The opportunity to reduce stress, trust yourself, heal from within and connect to joy in more moments.
What inspires you?
People who live their authentic truth and share it with the world.
Testimonials for Danielle
Danielle shared essential oils with me about a year ago and it has helped me transform my life along with my family. She has supported me as I learn how to incorporate them into my life and gently assisted me in developing a daily routine that works for me and my family. I’m sleeping better, able to manage my stress better, and basically just have more tools in our household for managing daily life. ❤
I have known Danielle and her amazing style of yoga for many years. I love that she includes essential oils and reiki in all her yoga sessions – it’s like a recharge for every ounce of who I am. Doing yoga with Danielle really brings me to a centered peace within myself and an expanded view of what’s possible just by breathing, moving with focused intention, and being present. I walk away in the presence of life and a full openness to whatever is next. Yin yoga has become one of my favorite types of yoga because of Danielle and the way she teaches it. Our world is overflowing with go, go, go and one session with Danielle is all about be, be, be.
