Daniel Shankin Ardmore, Pennsylvania
Daniel?s yoga resonates through the entire being of the practitioner. A fascinating, miraculous blend of mysticism, devotion, fluid movement, and grounded shape, this yoga has the ability to appropriately challenge any level of practitioner in a myriad of ways. His classes dedicate practices which allow one to learn how to climb into the body, to be in the body, to compassionately embrace places of limitation, and to celebrate places of spaciousness and vibrancy. Eschewing dogma, Daniel offers myth, poetry, and simple principles discovered by ancient yogis so his students can explore the depths of their own minds, and be guided, rather than force fed as they open toward deeper meaning. His teachers both too numerous and too mysterious to name, Daniel recognizes he would have not had the opportunity to meet any of them had it not been for the kindness extended to him by the parents who gave him birth. He divides his time between teaching, directing Main Line Yoga School in Ardmore, Pa, practicing Thai Massage, sitting on his mat, and opening his hips really, really wide.
