Before falling in love with yoga, Danielle was the co-founder/owner of Taggies, a global baby products company. Growing up in New York and then relocating to Central Massachusetts where she met her husband, Danielle was used to being on the hamster wheel of “life in the fast lane”. Despite skyrocketing business demands, mothering her three wonderful children always came first. Every Taggies office included a room for her accompanying “littles” and Danielle bounced between school events, trade shows and meetings for years. After the company’s sale in 2011, Danielle began business and marketing consulting and a journey of self-care. Taking time for her physical body and mind was a new endeavor as it was always at the bottom of her never ending “to-do” list. A believer in “anything is possible”, and entirely new to athletics, she committed to her first 5K before being able to run down her driveway. A triathlon, 10K, and half marathon later, Danielle is passionate about believing in yourself and helping others feel the same.

After her dream of moving to Cape Cod was realized, Danielle decided to try something else entirely new. Falling in love with yoga and its myriad of benefits 7 years ago, Danielle is only disappointed she didn’t incorporate it into her life earlier and encourages others to start where they are and that it is never too late to begin. Danielle has combined her nurturing instinct, compassion for others, and drive into her yoga teaching. A 200-hour RYT from The Golden Mind Project, she enjoys teaching Vinyasa Flow classes to all levels while integrating and honoring mindfulness as a lifelong skill to hone and be treasured. Danielle adores her “second chapter” in Mashpee with her amazing husband, David. She is an active runner and enjoys cycling. Her young adult children, Ryan, Rachel, and Ben are endless sources of joy.
