Christmas and New Year, Daniella Avnat.

Daniella Avnat.

Age: 30.

From: Tel Aviv, Israel.

I’ve danced ballet and modern dancing all of my life ever since i was 4 years old.

I was always fascinated by movement.

At the age of 20, after serving two years in the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces), I was exposed to Vinyasa Yoga for the very first time - an experience which completely changed the way I thought about movement and the human anatomy.

It was then that I understood how breathing, balance and elongated muscles could do wonders for our body.

It was my own injury which led me to become a Yoga and Pilates instructor and having the ability to heal myself made me realise that movement allows one to truly understand the body and soul from within.

So when I'm asked what type of yoga/pilates do i teach my answer is that it has no name, its movement flow with attention to the body and our breath.

I feel very lucky to do what i love most, to help connecting people around the world to their bodies and breath, to help them connecting to their inner selves, and find cure wishing themselves through moving and breathing.

Today I run my own movement studio in Tel Aviv, where i teach movement classes on a daily basis. Once in a few months i give a movement / rebirthing retreats in Israel and around the globe. (France, Sweden,Hungary, LA).

2012-2015 : studied South East Asia studies, buddhism and indian philosophy in Tel Aviv University.

2014 : 200h Vinyasa Yoga teacher training in prana yoga college tel aviv university.

2015 : Pilates teachers training in “Sieim campus” tel aviv university.
