Moving Forward

Danae Moore

Dear yoga friends,

Many of you already know this news, but I'm still a little bit in denial that it is actually happening... My husband and I are moving to Seattle to be closer to my family in anticipation of the birth of our first child.

April Updates: Samskaras + Saturdays

Danae Moore

Avoiding Suffering by Breaking Samskaras

Those of you who have been practicing with me for a while know that I believe yoga is a practice of developing self-awareness. Through the practice of yoga, we cultivate the ability to see ourselves more clearly. We slowly begin to uncover and understand our habits of behavior and patterns of thinking. In yogic philosophy, these patterns and habits are called samskaras.

Everything we do — every action we take, move we make, thought we think — leaves an impression, a samskara, on our minds and bodies. As yoga teacher David Yglesias puts it:

“Samskaras are like ruts on a muddy road. The more the wheel travels over them, the deeper the groove gets and the harder it is for the wheel, like our emotional tendencies, to break free from them.”

September update

Danae Moore

A Shift in Focus

Summer is coming to an end and so is my energy... Which means it's time to refocus and set some priorities! I've decided to cut back on my studio classes to focus on private lessons and yoga at the VA Hospital in Palo Alto (where I currently volunteer as an assistant in their yoga classes and will be joining the teaching staff soon).

First, the bad news

I will no longer be teaching at Worlds Yoga Milpitas (beginning next week) or Blue Iris Studio (beginning in October). I have enjoyed working with all the students and staff of these studios! Please keep in touch and swing by my classes at Avalon in Palo Alto if you have a chance.

Missing classes for a wedding... MY wedding

Danae Moore

Many of you already know this but I wanted to let everyone know that I'll be missing about a week of classes and another Saturday because I'm getting married to my boyfriend of 8 years — it's about time :) 

I'll be away from March 28th through April 6th and then again on Saturday, April 19th. We will be married in SF at the Palace of Fine Arts and then are extending the celebration for as long as we can with parties in Seattle and LA!

There are great subs lined up, enjoy!
