Daniela has been performing, teaching, and training in Indian classical dance Bharata Natyam in Tamil Nadu since 2004. Her exploration in sacred dances and rituals has lead her to absorb the fascinating history of temple dances, the devotional culture, spiritual philosophy, and traditional life style of India. Exploring poses, movements, and origins of Odissi Indian classical dance, Daniela‚Äôs classes embody the essence of the devotional ritualistic movements of the temple dancers, sharing with all women the transformational power encoded in these ancient arts. Daniela is a Yoga teacher from the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram of Chennai.
