I’m Daniel Shankin. I’ve been teaching meditation, and yoga, since 2002. During that time, I’ve owned and operated a yoga studio, and a digital marketing company. I’ve helped several of my friends open their studios as well, and have directed my fair share of yoga teacher training programs. I’m currently focused on coaching relationships that use mindfulness tools with motivated and conscious individuals.
Presence, attention, and focus allow us to achieve more, and to do so in a way that is aligned with our values. With conscious commitment, we lay a firm foundation for accelerated growth. We remain present, allow what arises, and meet each moment with wisdom and compassion. It doesn’t matter if it’s an exciting challenge at work, or a difficult situation in the heart. Our lives are complex, and they are also workable. Courage makes us brilliant.
For those interested in such things, I’ve trained in Presence Based Coaching with Doug Silsbee and his team. I can tell you about my yoga and meditation related training if you ask. It’s a bit long for this page.
It ends up when you keep walking paths that have rocks and steep climbs, you might think you are alone, but then you stop take a little break and you realize that you know other cool people that have been climbing and cultivating life-earned skills to share with others.
Daniel is one of those friends, and I am grateful to say I am a Mindfulness Client of his — and his work is exquisite and integrous.
