"With her masterful vinyasa sequencing and her authentic voice of wisdom, love, and grace. Daphne led one of the most memorable yoga classes I ever attended, in 2017. Instantly, I knew that I wanted Daphne to be the one to lead me further in my journey as a yoga teacher. Her training will unfold intelligent and intuitive sequencing, as well as illuminate the path to finding your narrative and voice as a teacher. Daphne has been one of the most profound influences in my yoga teaching journey."
