Supplementary to becoming a highly trained 200hr level yoga teacher, you will be guided to make the journey from living from your Head to living from your Heart and learn how to apply it to your life. With this knowledge, you will gain an understanding of what that means and be aligned on your personal path that is based in your heart. You will know how to live and teach from your authenticity and know why you are here, with confidence, clarity and purpose.

This training is a big opportunity to live your authentic and empowered self.

This is a deeply immersive 9 MONTH program. We train one weekend per month with integration and practice periods in between weekends.

Students who have participated in and graduated from the Head to Heart Personal Transformation program have ultimately amassed a variety of tools, resources and adaptations to their own lives to better equip them with a mastery over their lives, rather than their lives having mastery over them.

Through the program, many students have gained a sense of confidence in the self and have progressed to embody a heart-based leadership.  With a more complex understanding and wisdom of the roots of yoga, successful graduates have also been empowered to deepen their own asana practices with the knowledge of internal alignment.   This transformation of life has in turn, allowed them to heal their bodies and their relationship to them while connecting with their tribe.


In learning the philosophy and teachings of yoga, students have established an unprecedented connection to the Heart and to their Intuition, which has compelled them to change their views and interactions with the world in a positive and strength-based way.  This has often been achieved through the creation and establishment of strong and healthy boundaries.

Students have learned the skills required to design a functioning home practice while being well versed in the ability to provide excellent and sound verbal internal alignment instruction.

Through the acquisition of the tools required to empower themselves in all relations, the Head to Heart Personal Transformation program has enlightened students with the understanding of what it means to truly live from their Hearts.

We have a BEAUTIFUL HOME in San Jose!
255 North Market Street, Suite 270, San Jose, CA 95110 (Near San Pedro Square)


We have our own parking lot right outside the building and free street parking in a quiet section of town.


The Head To Heart Personal Transformation Program & 200hr Yoga Teacher Training is a full commitment training program. In order to get the most out of your training experience, full attendance is of course best. However, we do understand that life circumstances arise. Therefore, we provide a grace period in which you can miss up to 2 full weekends of the training and still be able to make up the work and complete the course.


Q: Can beginners take this course?

A: Yes. You will learn everything you need to know in the training itself so no experince is required. We will teach you heatlhy habits from the beginning and build you from the ground up.

Q: If I already have a 200hr certifiation from somewhere else, can I take this training?

A: Absolutely yes. This is a personal transformation program built inside a yoga teacher training and is not offered anywhere else. Subsequently, many people who were already certified teachers have taken this training because they did not get the education they had hoped for. Likewise, they may have wanted their own personal transformation to take their leadership and skillset to the next level. This course includes specific alignment training and heart-wisdom life coaching. The course you accumulated from taking The Head to Heart Yoga Training can count towards continuing education hours on top of your already established certification.

Q: Can I take this program if I am pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant during the course?

A: Yes! We have had many women take this course during their pregnancy and given birth during the course and have successfully completed it. Daniella and her team are well trained to work with pregnant women. They are our body temple babies!

dQ: I don’t live in the San Jose area. Can I still attend this training program?

A: Yes. We have many come from out of town to take this training. We meet one weekend per month. As such, this makes it accessible and doable for those coming from out of town, whether it’s SF, Sacramento or flying in from Southern California. Flights on Southwest are EASY and local Airbnb’s are great! We have a list of them for you. Students have also stayed with some of their fellow students-in-training who are local. The possibilities are endless.

Q: Why does your program have a higher tuition than other yoga teacher trainings?

A: Great question! Our course is MORE than just a yoga teacher training. It is a personal transformation program AND yoga teacher training built into one. Participants get more than just a certificate that says they can teach yoga. Students are getting personal growth training and high level yoga knowlege that, unfortunately, is missing in the majority of mainstream yoga education. Students will be trained to be the best version of themselves, best teacher/leader they can be and gain the knowledge of how to live and lead from the Heart. This is for those of you that understand that personal growth and healing is paramount to serving others and having a prosperous and successful mission.
