Daniel helped me cut through to what was underlying my frustration. We turned it over and exposed it to light. We broght love into it, releasing old fear. A deep healing happened. Then, at the end Daniel helped me create a Mantra that moves me everyday: “I Am a Touchstone of Love.”  Thank You Daniel!  Wow you are good!

About Me

I’m Daniel Sitaram Das 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 and grow their studios as well, and have directed my fair share of yoga teacher training programs. I’m currently focused on building coaching partnerships 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.

I know that in the worlds of coaching, yoga, and meditation, things aren’t always what they seem, and people with dubious qualifications abound. I do train rigorously with the best, most high integrity people I can find. This includes Doug Silsbee’s Presence Based Coaching program, numerous yoga teacher trainings, and workshops in numerous healing modalities. I’m happy to go into depth with you on a one on one basis, if you have more questions.

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.
