Welcome to Danja Yoga
You're only one yoga class away from a good mood.
We're glad you stopped by. We're the founders, Daniel and Jake. Danja Yoga & Fitness was born out of the desire to create a new kind of yoga experience where everybody and every body is welcome and modifications for poses are offered without judgement. We envisioned a neighborhood yoga studio where anyone could come to practice authentic yoga and meditation and where the instructors are approachable and know your name. Danja invites you to relax, work hard, laugh, let go, and just be yourself as you release stress, build strength, and increase flexibility. Our classes challenge you to develop your best self as you clear the mind and ignite your health. We're on a lifelong mission to prove you don't have to bend into a pretzel shape to benefit from yoga.
