Danni is a professional Licensed Massage Therapist since 2011. She offers many different modalities depending on what you need or desire. She offers a combination of any of the following: Swedish Massage (relaxation), Ayurvedic Massage (circulatory), Deep Tissue (for those who have deep muscle stress and knots), and Reiki (energy healing). Even if you request a Swedish Massage, Danni may perform one or two of the other modalities through her intuition of what your body needs. Choose from a 60 or 90-minute session on the beach - a light breeze from the palm trees and the gentle crash of the waves offer the ideal ambiance for a relaxing, body soothing experience. In addition to providing massages, Danni, who has enjoyed practicing yoga for 10 years, is also a certified 200 hour yoga instructor trained in Rishikesh, India. She instructs a one-hour Hatha class where the focus is on connecting the mind with the body through your breath with the asanas. Meditation and mantras are also a big part of her class to tie in the Eastern philosophy of yoga. All levels are welcome. Classes are conducted in the rancho of Intercultura (Spanish Language School) with a beautiful view of the ocean from 8am-9am Monday-Friday. The first and last Saturday of every month is a donation class - give what you can. Private instruction or beach yoga instruction for larger groups is also available. Please contact Danni for pricing and availability. Danni has had a love for sea turtles since 2005 where she swam with them off the coast of the Big Island in Hawaii. For the love of turtles the full amount from Saturday's yoga class will go to one of the turtle conservancies here in the Nicoya peninsula. « less
