Dan has been practicing Yoga since 2009, and received his 200RYT in 2015. Because he is passionate about teaching and delving deeper into yoga, Dan got certified with advanced degrees in 2020 and is now a eRYT200 and RYT500 yoga teacher. His personal practice has helped him grow stronger; physically, mentally, and spiritually. Dan encourages freedom of expression, individuality, and a commitment to helping people achieve more than they think they can in yoga classes. His teaching style balances the body with unique sequencing and by offering fun flow during classes which results in many “first breakthroughs”, connection, and growth.

At The Yoga Connection 1103 LLC, we believe in the limitless potential of CONNECTION. You will have opportunities to have connection with your instructor and other students in the class. Connection may be found in hugs, assists, energy, chanting, eye contact, partner poses, etc. Connection also brings friendships, trust, support, encouragement, positivity with everyone at the studio. Connection brings us all closer to our truest, divine selves and eliminates the ego and the emotions that come along with it.
Why 1103:Back in 2015, a psychic told Jessica that a departed relative wanted Jessica to look for the numbers of her birthday (11/03) as a sign of communication. Jessica began to see the numbers (1’s, 0’s and 3’s) popping up in many places. Hotel rooms, recepts, mileage, house numbers… Seeing the numbers became a wonderful way that Jessica felt signs and guidance from her ancestors. Without knowing that, Dan said to Jessica one day, “I keep seeing 3’s and 13’s everywhere. I don’t know why.” From then on, it became a shared connection!
