.My name is Danelle Blanton and I am a 200 HR Registered Yoga Instructor. I live in Wood County outside of Quitman, Texas, off of Lake Fork, the Big Bass Capitol of Texas, with my husband, Ronald Paul, a flock of mallard ducklings and our 3 dogs Charlie, Goose and Gracie!
I started practicing yoga because like many of you I was broken. I was trapped in my own body not only physically but emotionally, mentally and spiritually too. I found that once I made a commitment to self-care and a dedication to be present at practice that I began to come into balance. With time I was yearning for my moments on the mat and I felt my body healing in so many unexpected ways. It was then that I knew my path in life was to learn this beautiful practice and share yoga with my community.
I studied and trained in Canton, Texas, at Yama Yoga & Wellness Center with Summer Smith. Furthermore, I am a certified Red Cross Lifeguard and certified in Aquatic Education. I love to teach yoga whether on land or water!
Additionally, I have completed certifications in Restorative Flow, Happy Feet, as well as a 95 HR Registered Children's Yoga Instruction with Yogees Yoga 4 Kids Teacher Training. This training gives me the tools to appropriately teach yoga to tots - teens!
