About Danit

About Danit

Yoga is about each student getting the best and most complete experience tailored to their personal needs and abilities. Danit sees her role as a facilitator, who is focused on helping each student have the best personal experience possible.

Danit Schreiber has been teaching Yoga for nearly a decade at Kaia Yoga. Over this time, Danit has developed a unique voice and her own distinctive style of teaching.  Danit focuses on achieving the greatest opening of the body and mind through a combination of effort and surrender. Uniting proper breathing with movement helps students attain the level of relaxation needed to open energy flow in the body and both strengthen and stretch their muscles and calm their mind.   

Danit completed her hour 200 certification with Gina Norman and Stan Woodman at Kaia Yoga. In addition, Danit completed her 300 hour with Gina and Stan after beginning her 300 hour training at OM in New York with Cyndi Lee. She studied and completed her meditation certification, level 1 through 3, with David Nichtern. Danit has deep gratitude towards Gina and Stan for their support as mentors who introduced her to the world of teaching yoga.

Danit has been practicing yoga and meditation on a daily basis for years. She finds yoga to be a natural extension of her long time experience as a ballet dancer. During her years of teaching, Danit has achieved the certification level of E-RYT 500 and YACEP. Certified in vinyasa, restorative, yin, meditation (level 3) and Reiki healing, Danit provides students with a broad range of possibilities and approaches. Danit's broad background enables her to balance a focus on strong alignment and precise movements with mind and breath awareness that enable her students to both work and rejuvenate. Her classes are built on creative sequencing and a unique style to awaken and evoke the students' physical and mental awareness.

Prior to teaching Yoga, Danit worked in the business world. After serving in the Israeli Air Force, Danit completed her law degree and practiced as a litigator for several years in Tel Aviv. Danit worked as a corporate executive for several years before she and her family moved to the US.  

In the US she started a successful business in teaching presentation skills. Danit decided to pursue Yoga because it gave her the satisfaction and joy of helping and supporting people in a manner that none of her previous endeavors could match. Being able to give people the same pleasure and benefits from Yoga that Danit herself has enjoyed is the ultimate reward. The mother of three wonderful children, Danit lives with her husband in Rye, NY.
