I have been training with Daniela in Classical Pilates for 2 years. When I started training, I could barely breathe without wheezing due to a mitral valve leak and other cardiac issues. Today, I’ve surprised my cardiologists by showing improvement in my mitral valve and the ability to overcome a challenging health situation. I’m also performing exercises I didn’t think possible. Daniela is a highly committed and nurturing trainer. She’s patient, encouraging and builds confidence. Added bonus, my body is tight and shapelier. Plus her studio is equipped with Gratz equipment ( modeled by Joseph Pilates). Love coming to the studio !Sep 14, 2018
Daniela is the best instructor I have ever had. She is very knowledgeable about the human body and the best way to use the exercise techniques to provide the best results. She is also a very nice young lady and a pleasure to work with which makes the tough workouts almost fun.Oct 30, 2016
I highly recommend Daniela's Yoga. I always look forward to my Friday morning class. Daniela's class begins with a thorough warm up that makes you ready and eager to start the core practice. Daniela's class is challenging but she makes it possible for all who attend to work every pose by demonstrating varying levels of each pose. Each class ends with a calming cool down. In addition to the asana practice Daniela includes additional aspects of Yoga including breathing techniques, meditation and many of the other areas of Yoga in each class. The only way to improve this class would be to offer more classes by Daniela throughout each week.Dec 26, 2015
Hi my name is Maureen Benoit and for the last six months I have had the great opportunity to develop a weekly yoga practice with Daniela Caesar-Roden. She is our yoga teacher at our local gym. What can I say about Daniela besides the fact that she is tiny and mighty, lots. I have practiced yoga for about 5 years now and have had some of the most gifted yoga teachers in a class and private setting. Daniela stands a notch above most. What I love about the style in which Daniela tends to her practice and students is that she is heart present with individuals in her group as well as present to the collective nature of us all combined. In as much that she tends to the collective impact we have to each other in our small group she also brings in the universal component as to why we even practice yoga at all. In addition to demonstrating precision with her craft she is so creative with her style of teaching that there is a flair of anticipation from her students as to what will she surprise us with this week. Often times she incorporates positions that are very different and unique to our practices and still at our appropriate level. Daniela loves her job and cares about her students and it is evident each week with the preparation that is demonstrated with her weekly group practice. In addition to being careful that her students have proper alignment and safely engage in their practice Daniele encourages her students to set their personal intentions and practice with their hearts. She incorporates those beautiful traits we sometimes call virtues: kindness, compassion and service. The first time Daniela placed her small and gentle hands on me during shavasana I was so moved with the enormous sense that for that moment I was being cared for. Daniela is a fine young woman and anyone who is graced by her presence and yoga practice can only be but enriched.Jan 22, 2016
I am so glad that Daniela became one of our yoga instructors at Total Woman Gym and Spa. She demonstrates and tells us in her easy listening gentle voice exactly how to do the poses. She walks around the class to insure we are doing the poses correctly with attention to detail showing us minor adjustments if needed. She is very knowledgeable and if someone asks a question, she answers it with kindness. She brings variety to the class and gives us different options for different levels of experience. Daniela brings wonderful energy to our yoga practice. I feel the balanced energy in her class and at the end, the shavasana pose I feel the calmness and leaving the class with her inspiring words. She shows up for class, gives us her full attention, and quite often goes over the class time. I am blessed and humbled to have her as an instructor.Jan 1, 2016

I will begin by going over your medical history so that I am well informed on where your at. I will also ask you to discuss your goals for training. I will guide you through a number of simple movements and exercises, in pilates what we call "fundamentals." I will use this as an opportunity to observe how connected you are to your body, how injury or alignment issues are affecting your movement, and assess your starting point.
