Dannette was introduced to yoga after a serious injury sidelined her from her previously active life. The practices of Gentle and Restorative Yoga nourished and awakened her mind, body, and spirit – and a new passion was born. Dannette’s desire to share the healing benefits of yoga led her to study with Lynda Light, at Light & Love Yoga School. Dannette graduated in the fall of 2011 as a 500 RYT. To deepen and expand her yoga studies and desire to help students heal, Dannette took a year-long Life Coach training program and is now a Life Coach, and is currently enrolled in a 1000-hour Yoga Therapy Program at The Soul of Yoga Institute and will graduate in June 2015 as a yoga therapist. Dannette teaches Gentle and Restorative yoga at various studios throughout North San Diego County, and is available to work privately or in groups with anyone interested in learning more about the healing benefits of yoga in a safe, supported environment.

500hr Light & Love Yoga Certified

Hello, my name is Gina Brown. My journey into yoga began in the 1970’s with Master Teacher, Lilias Folan and the popular KPBS series, “Lilia’s Yoga and You.” After raising my two beautiful children, I decided to enroll in the yoga teacher-training program at Mira Costa Community College. I received my Vedic Yoga Therapy training at The Deep School of Yoga in Coronado, California and completed my 500 Hour Yoga Certification with Light and Love Yoga in Encinitas, California. It gives me great joy to share my love of yoga with others. The gift of yoga has given me a balanced and positive outlook on life, and I continually become more inspired, energized and aware. I look forward to the years ahead knowing I will always have something meaningful to experience and to achieve. With this feeling nothing can stand in the way of my inner fulfillment as I embrace the third stage of my life.
