About Danielle DiCamillo

Danielle completed her Dance and Psychology Degree at Hunter College and shortly thereafter received her yoga certification from Laughing Lotus in 2008. She has been teaching for ten years and along the way received her Masters in Social Work at Hunter College. Danielle works as a Licensed Master of Social Work and utilizes her yoga and meditation practices to serve and empower communities throughout New York City. Danielle’s yoga teaching is inspired both by her integrative background of her clinical practice and her most influential teacher Nikki Vilella of Kula Yoga Project.

She incorporates all elements of the practice—physical, mental, and spiritual—in order to create a strong foundation for her students.
