Vinyasa Yoga 101 (non-heated)

This class is taught by:

Danielle Jackman

I started taking yoga classes when I lived in San Francisco during college. From the moment I left my first class, I knew that there was something that undoubtedly set yoga apart from any other activity I had tried. There was an instant connection and draw to keep practicing. Not long after that first class, becoming a yoga teacher became my absolute dream. I continued to practice through the years at various studios, and finally landed at Just Be, where I found my home. I completed the teacher training in Fall 2016 and shortly thereafter completed a mentorship with Malia Hill.


Why yoga?
Yoga allows me to feel at home in my body and allows me to appreciate who I innately am. Yoga allows me to live in love, rather than in fear. Yoga keeps me aligned with my passion, with myself, and with my path.


Who or what inspires you?
My teachers inspire me for many reasons, but most prominently for their ability to so powerfully share parts of themselves every time they teach a class.


Three adjectives that describe you and your teaching style:
Tenacious. Compassionate. Honest.


Where are you the most fearlessly authentic in your life?
I am most fearlessly authentic in my career and in starting my own healing business. I now wake up and love what I do for a living.


What is something not a lot of people know about you?
Surfing comes in at a close second to yoga on my list of favorite hobbies. I love the ocean and am convinced I was a dolphin or mermaid in a past life.

Why yoga?
Yoga has been one of the most effective practices to ground, balance, clear, and awaken me to the best version of myself. I come back to my mat over and over to feel lighter, brighter, and more connected. The trainings and intensives light up my soul and empower me in endless ways.

Who or what inspires you?
I am most inspired when I am creating and co-creating with others who are equally passionate about passing along the wisdom and teachings that lead to breakthroughs and awakening.

Three adjectives that describe you and your teaching style:
Flowing, spiritual, and empowering.

Where are you the most fearlessly authentic in your life?
On my yoga mat & in a ThetaHealing® session. These two practices have gifted me with tools to be authentic and fearless and clear the self-limiting bullsh*t. It’s a practice, a daily practice, that I bring into my life as a teacher, mentor, leader, wife, sister, and friend. Living and sharing the teachings requires me to be fearlessly authentic over and over again.
