Danah Blanco

Depth, Attention, Discernment

Yoga, Ayurveda, Vedic Astrology Teacher and Student.

My name is Danah and I have lived in Tenerife since 2018 after years abroad between South East Asia and Southern Africa. I study, practice and teach the intersection between Yoga, Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology with our body-mind-soul through movement, breath, relaxation, meditation, self-inquiry, somatic symbolism, art and ritual. The thread that weaves it all together is the holistic understanding of the bond that exists between our inner world and our outer cosmos. When we explore our lives through an embodied practice that integrates all sides of our layered selves, we can begin to return to our centre, to ourselves, and from there, breathe meaning into our lives.

My classes and sessions differ according to the moment and to the attendants. My physical yoga asana and pranayama classes are based on yoga therapy, restorative and classical vinyasa sequences made to tailor the practice to your own needs. My theoretical yoga classes are based on the study of history and philosophy including the early roots of Yoga through Samkhya, Vedanta, Tantra, Buddhism and others. My intuitive sessions include guidance in the tailoring of routines and rituals from the point of view of Art, Myth, Symbolism, Yoga, Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology. 

The union of polarities inside ourselves, creating an integrated being always towards wholeness, is the background of the work I share. Body, mind and soul as an inseparable reality only waiting to be realized as one.

Languages: English, Spanish, French, Arabic, Sanskrit (in class/text/mantra/study context).

Some of my studies around the world include:

  • Bachelor Degree in Art History.
  • Masters in Art and Cultural Management.
  • Various Yoga certifications, courses and training in different modalities and for different purposes including Yoga Therapy and Yoga for Kids.
  • Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology courses and certifications.
  • Continuing self-inquiry, everyday study of texts, physical and meditative practices since 2005.
