Danielle Gustafson two jobs, two kids and a serious case of wanderlust. She is a yoga educator. She is a real estate broker. She views leading classes, retreats and trainings, as a blessing and a calling. She sees yoga in everything she does and dabbles in nutrition. Gone are the days of shoestring world travel but she gave it a good run. After nearly a decade of teaching prenatal, baby and toddler yoga, she’s held space for countless mamas through joys and challenges of motherhood. Inspired by her baby yoga mamas and her own incredibly rocky start to motherhood, Danielle was determined to hold new mamas in the loving arms of sisterhood, support and spirituality and created Sacred Beginnings training retreats & classes. As we grow, we evolve (if we're lucky) and Danielle recognized the need to expand Sacred Beginnings to something bigger, more all encompassing for women of all ages and stages ... And The Grateful Goddess was born!

Certified at the 500-hour level, Danielle finds sharing yoga an absolute honor and none of her classes are ever the same – each guided by whim, weather, request and creative impulse.  She has an amazing ability to tailor the experience to exactly what’s needed in the moment, no matter if it's a beginning-level class or a class for those whose mat is worn out and their arm balances perfected. Danielle adopted the view that the yoga mat is a mirror reflecting back Truth - a beautiful manifestation of experience unfolding with breath, movement and turning up the volume of inner listening. She has taken her yoga out into the world leading yoga classes and retreats in various countries, almost always those with sunshine and a gorgeous beach.


Danielle is a professional level yoga educator, holistic health coach and certified raw food chef. She has trained with world-renowned yoga teachers including Manju Jois, Baron Baptiste and Don & Amba Stapleton. She lives and reigns in St. Augustine Beach, FL and (when the stars align) Nosara, Costa Rica.
