As a guest teacher, she also participated in several TV shows produced by Univision Los Angeles, introducing Yoga to the Latin community.
Daniela´s personal process to ease pain and injuries suffered after a serious accident occurred in her hometown in 2010, led her to investigate, submit to and practice traditional and experimental holistic healing methods (Swimming, Alexander technique, GPR, Eutony, Family Constellations, Emotional Biodecoding, TCM, etc.). Thanks to her efforts and to the support and expertise of many dear people, recovery eventually took place. Over the past years, she´s been teaching, dancing and working with a new perspective on life, health and relations.
In 2012 she was invited to teach a Yoga Flow training to the members of the Dni-Tango Dance Company& School (Buenos Aires, Argentina). Later, in 2013 and 2014 she taught “Yoga for Tango Dancers” classes to local and international students at the same school. Since 2015, Daniela is running her own studio in Buenos Aires, Yoga Flow Palermo.
