"I have no regrets on being a young mom, but I worry that I might not be making the right decisions sometimes. I want to impress on him most of all to never settle in life.” Yet it is her son that also fuels her passion for health and Yoga. Daniela admits to her own personal struggles with the convenience of fast and easy foods. Health wasn’t her priority until one day she woke up tired of binging and starving herself. Unhappy with her body image she decided to make a life change. She started researching food (a self-You Tube University educated woman), and taking Yoga classes at Boundless Yoga Studio. One of Daniela’s greatest inspirations was her yoga teacher Jen Allen, whose self-empowered-feminism ideals and herbal remedies helped change Daniela’s life path.
Fueled with curiosity, she began researching and experimenting with home remedies, organic foods, and even skin care products. Daniela developed her own skin cream she calls, “Aurora Goddess”. “After all”, says Daniela “Jen taught me that if I can’t eat it why on earth put it into my body, therefore I decided to stop using the over the counter products and produce my own.” In March of 2014 she decided to attend the 200-hour Yoga Teacher training course to become a Yoga Teacher. She completes her training in February of 2015 and is now teaching a weekly women’s only benefit class on Wednesday’s from 4pm to 5pm at Boundless Yoga Studio. The proceeds will go to Women’s Resources of Monroe County, PA. We look forward to watching Daniela progress as her passion and drive alone ensure that this woman has great things in store!
