IT'S TIME TO MAKE YOUR HEALTH AND HAPPINESS NON-NEGOTIABLE.
Is it always easy to eat healthy, meditate and workout?
Heck no! I'd probably live on brick oven pizza and gelato if I could, but feeling bloated and foggy all day are no bueno.
Instead I focus 80% of my time on eating nutrient dense foods, moving my body and practicing meditation- it's what keeps my body healthy and my mind focused- and there's always that other 20% to play with.
I was always someone who was very driven, fit, active and in charge of my health.
I'm still that person, but some things have changed.
Injuries (ironically, from my yoga practice) and the normal changes that come with aging have altered my fitness regimen in a way that doesn't support me looking like I did when I was 30 (and in the best shape of my life). But that's ok.
Here's the interesting part.
My Xen Strength method got me the body I wanted, but practicing yoga off the mat also taught me how to practice patience, acceptance, and gratitude when I ended up with a body I didn't feel comfortable in for a while.
That's what I'm here to teach you.
There's more to yoga than getting a tight butt, but you should be able to have it all... the body you want and a life you love; all the while knowing that the tight butt doesn't equal happiness.

Prior to becoming a certified teacher, Danielle stumbled upon yoga as a producer for MTV. After turning 40, she noticed that while she felt better than ever, her mind and body needed more.
She looked for a method that combined true mind/body health but couldn’t find one. This inspired her to develop her Xen Strength Method incorporating Xen Strength Yoga with Weights to create a modern twist on yoga that combines meditation, yoga and strength training so you can become the happiest person you know.
In 2012 Danielle produced her first Xen Strength Yoga DVD, which has sold thousands of copies all over the world, and she trains teachers globally in her Xen Strength Yoga with Weights method. Danielle is a regular contributor to Yahoo Beauty and The Huffington Post, and has appeared on the Today Show, Dr. Oz, and also on Shape, Yoga Journal and Self Online. She was featured in Bobbi Brown’s Pretty Powerful campaign and book, and is a featured teacher on YogaVibes and YogaDownload; she also struck a fierce Koundinyasa in the Sundance darling “Concussion.”
Danielle teaches at A-list wellness events in NYC and The Hamptons, hosted by Wellthily, Gurney’s Inn and Yoga Journal; and she speaks about wellness in the workplace at corporations such as Bobbi Brown Cosmetics.
When she's not running her own brand, she shares her experience and knowledge of running a 6 figure wellness business by coaching other entrepreneurs to do the same.
Danielle believes that her yoga and meditation practice is the sole reason she's overcome her biggest challenges: her mother’s suicide, father’s bankruptcy and poor body image. Instead of letting her story revolve around trauma and stress, living her yoga has allowed Danielle to thrive, and rewrite her story to focus on peace, happiness and teaching others to do the same.
