Daniella Cotreau is the founder of RYS200 Body Temple Yoga School and Body Temple Yoga™. She navigates from a passionate clarity that sees the Body as a Temple not only for personal growth, healing, evolution, and a connection to the divine but also a place to connect to and live from our Hearts, Intuition and inner guidance.
Her personal mission: To open the Hearts of the People. To teach people how to cultivate a connection to their bodies’ innate intelligence; to discern between the voice of the mind to the voice of the Heart; to live from the heart and powerfully create the life and world they dream and deserve. She teaches how to live more in tune with the Body, Heart, Nature and each other, how to follow the Body’s wisdom and the Heart’s wisdom to align with their most creative and powerful self.
Activist, Yogini, Dancer, Massage Therapist, Reiki practitioner, performance artist, health and nutrition advocate, she is based in Los Gatos, California and has been teaching for over a decade. She teaches 200/300 hour Level Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Trainings, life enhancing workshops, tropical retreats and transformational Intensives, all nationally and internationally. She is an Ambassador for Manduka and supports Odanadi, an organization against human trafficking in India, The Netherlands, The US and the UK.
Daniella’s first foundational teacher training was in the 8 Limbs Ashtanga tradition at Mount Madonna Center, the local Ashram of Baba Hari Dass, in 2003. She has traveled, taught and studied in Thailand, Bali, India and Costa Rica having explored different branches of yoga which have included Kundalini, Bikram, Hatha, and Iyengar.
