a personal note:
I first met Danny in the old and sweaty changing room of a gym in a primary school. Danny taught an eager group of students and kept teasing “one more?”, the class went on forever, I was amazed. Back then Danny had been travelling the world and sharing the practices of yoga and his evergrowin insights into life for well more than 20 years. Since then I had the pleasure of meeting him around the globe regularly and I am truly happy to welcome him to Vienna this year, don‘t miss!!!

Danny Paradise has been practising Ashtanga Yoga since 1976 and teaching worldwide since 1979. He initially studied with the first Western teachers of Ashtanga, David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff. Danny learned the beginning and advanced sequences from them over five years and has studied with Sri Patabbhi Jois in 1978 and 1980. Danny has also studied and practiced with Yoga teachers and Spiritual guides in many other lineages and traditions as well as teachers of Kung fu, Tai Chi and Karate.
SINCE 1979 Danny has introduced all levels of the practices of Ashtanga Yoga to students and teachers in 40 countries. He has also introduced the Ashtanga practices to world renowned artists, musicians, dancers, Buddhist Lamas, actors, film directors and sports champions. He incorporates indigenous spiritual traditions into the practice and philosophy of Yoga, relating Yoga to all Shamanic nature-based cultures.
Danny draws from the teachings of Krishnamurti, Marianne Williamson, Caroline Myss, Buddha, ancient Egypt as well as many Indigenous nature based cultures.
