Dani Reidy, 500-Hour E-RYT, Owner of Arrow Yoga + Arrow Retreats

Dani Reidy is a 500 E-RYT who has taught thousands of hours of yoga around the world since 2014. She began her yoga journey through Baptiste Yoga and discovered a passion for the rigorous nature of the asana.  She learned quickly that she admired the more subtle realms of the practice and dove deep into studying the energetics and philosophy, which she continues to diligently learn.

She values being a student first and is curious about the physiological and psychological components of the practice so she can assist herself and others to self regulate in moments of challenge. Dani is proud to have trained with and continues to be inspired by her teachers, Baron Baptiste, Elena Brower, and Ally Bogard. Dani has studied in India with Laughing Lotus teachers, Ali Cramer and Deborah Langley, is certified in the psychology of the chakras from teacher nd author Anodea Judith, and has trained with Abbie Galvin in Katonah Yoga. She is currently studying with Rod Stryker.

Arrow Yoga was created out of Dani’s love for learning and sharing educational yoga courses that impart ancient wisdom through modern translations. Dani is also the owner and founder of Arrow Retreats, a boutique travel company for women. She aims to empower local economies by working with small women owned businesses wherever she travels and has led over 20 retreats in 15 international destinations.
