Danyelle Forbes

I grew up in Colorado and moved to California to attend college at CSU Long Beach. I fell in love with living by the ocean, and moved to San Luis Obispo after graduating in 2013. For me, the Central Coast is a perfect blend of what I love about Colorado and what I love about California. Yoga has been a part of my life since I was in high school, but I found a deep and dedicated practice while working a high-stress sales job in SLO. Yoga was what kept my mind, body and soul healthy and balanced during those years. In November 2016 my fiance and I left SLO to backpack through Asia for seven months; it was an experience I will never forget. At the end of our trip, we were in India where I completed my 200 hour YTT program. I attended an incredible school in Goa, right on the beach and was taught by fabulous Indian instructors who have lived a sattvic yoga lifestyle with their families for generations. I came home with a strong desire to spread the yoga knowledge I have, and to continue deepening my own practice daily. I also teach Barre Fitness in SLO, and have for the last 3 years. I love the strength, toning, community and fun music it entails! I am so excited to be a part of the Yoga Village team and can't wait to meet you!
