Bay Area Yoga Teacher Highlights: Danni Pomplun
Name: Danni Pomplun.
Practice with me at: Yoga Tree Hayes, Yoga Tree Valencia, and Yoga Tree Castro. Online at Movewith.com and MyYogaWorks.com.
How long I’ve been practicing yoga: About 16 years.
How long I’ve been teaching yoga: About 6 years.
What kind of yoga I teach: Vinyasa yoga, or what I like to call Vinyasa Breakdown. It's where I spend time within class breakdown different postures so students can better understand the biomechanics and why they're important.
My mantra these days: Do more with less.
A posture that has been resonating with me lately is: Handstand...I mean what's more fun than playing on your hands?
How I like to practice yoga off the mat: Help.
My sign: Leo.
The last book I read was: The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz.
Favorite local juice/tea spot: Stonemill Matcha on Valencia.
What’s on your yoga playlist right now: Masego, Portugal. The Man. I used to DJ so making playlists is how I can relive that. You can follow me on Spotify here.
A few of my favorite yoga teachers are: Noah Maze, Rocky Heron, Janet Stone, Jason Crandell--all of whom I've learned so much from.
A ritual I love: My morning coffee. The first few moments of just sitting after waking. A little movement, then writing in my gratitude journal.
What I am embracing this year: All of the things ahead. I've produced my first 500-hour curriculum which seems unreal, and I get to lead it alongside some of my teachers. Look out for it in 2020!
