Danika shares: Passion and a Belief that Yoga is for Everybody with Her Students

I was first introduced to yoga through a friend encouraging me to try Bikram style. It was enlightening and empowering! I practiced off and on while living in Colorado, but my passion for yoga blossomed here in Kansas City.  I found a renewed love for spirituality and a closeness to God as I continued to practice. Yoga became more about mindfulness than about competitiveness. Thus, I realized I wanted to share my new-found passion with others! I received my teacher training at KCFitnessLink in Kansas City, Kansas in September 2011.  I feel that yoga is for Every Body! And, Any yoga is better than no yoga! I am blessed to have found this path of yoga and hope to continue to pass along the yoga love!

Sharon Loves Learning and Sharing Yoga with Her Students September 5, 2012

I was a full-time homemaker and after my 3 daughters were in school full-time, I realized that my life had changed and I to needed to redefine my role in life.  I began taking massage classes at MTTI and discovered that I love helping people heal.  So I completed the curriculum and became a Certified Massage Therapist.  Meanwhile I took my first yoga class in 1998 while finishing my certification.   At first I loved it as a self-care for myself as a body worker, but began to see how the relationship between massage and the wisdom of yoga could also benefit my clients. 

I received my 200 RYT with Suzette Schultes’ Yoga School of Therapeutics. Through her certification I have studied with many amazing teachers like Doug Keller, Aadil Palkhivala,  Rod Striker and many others.  I am also certified as a “Relax and Renew” teacher by Judith Hanson Laster.   I love to share the therapeutic and restorative qualities of yoga.

Recently, I attended a workshop by Gary Kraftsow.  I experienced his “Viniyoga” and was transformed.  This form of yoga is deep, gentle, powerful and life changing for me.  I have attended the first of 4 two-week intensives to become a Certified Viniyoga Teacher.

I love learning and sharing with and from my students. I hope I will always see “through the eye of the student”.

YouYoga’s Gratitude Basket is Overflowing with Thanks for Our Students! September 4, 2012


We’re excited to announce our NEW Gratitude Basket at YouYoga! We’ve been sharing yoga at our space in Overland Park, Kansas for 1 year, and many of our students have been present with us from the beginning…..they’ve seen the transitions in our space, in our offerings and in our staff of fabulous teachers!  Everything hasn’t always been ideal, but our students have stood by us… after day, and practice after practice. We want to share our thanks for their support and belief in YouYoga with our Gratitude Basket!

Here’s the scoop! Students who have filled their class card (index card) will be able to pull a gift from the Gratitude Basket. Gifts will range from free classes, discounted passes, gift cards from Starbucks and Panera!

We love our students, and we love what we do, so it feels good to give back to the people who make YouYoga and the sharing of Yoga/Pilates possible. We have multiple students who are qualified to pull from the basket. It will make it’s apperance at the first of next week!

Get ready to share some Gratitude!!!  Off to get a basket to fill now :)!
