I ran a marathon once… Yup, exactly one time. That was my first and it will be my last. But some people LIVE FOR IT! In many cases, these marathoners train year after year all year long. Then, they add in biking and swimming and call it a party
It took me a long time to realize how much I could accomplish simply by putting my mind to it. I never really believed in my potential. And then sometimes when I did consider the incredible things I was manifesting, I failed to take a step back
I never really thought a walk in nature was yoga, but it’s true. Any gateway to a mindful side is all a part of the practice. When Annie Carpenter mentioned this to me, it got me curious about other areas that bring us there. You see, Annie has
Being a member of the LGBT+ community has made for some interesting plot twists in my life! It has obviously shaped me in a big way. And, like many of you, there have been a number of times during which I felt unsafe just for being who I am. Th
One of the greatest honors in this life is to witness my friends inside their growth process. I often get to see them step into their authentic truth, which is such a gift! Being allowed in to see someone’s life and to hear of all the twists an
My mind is still blown by the reality of my opening a yoga studio in San Francisco. I took a moment and reflected back on all the things that have gotten me to this place and this space -- All the boxes I thought I needed to check. All the yoga
Are you tired?! I’m talking EXHAUSTED to the point of wanting to break down…I know how you feel. I’ve been there and you’ve seen it! This past year has been a crazy one and I’ve been practicing all of my yoga tools to bring my best self to you.
How many times have you heard yourself saying “HARD WORK.” Rather let me rephrase that, how many times have you heard me say, “I AM WORKING HARD''. I never once stopped to bother and think, “Why can’t the work be work but not hard all the time?
It’s HARD being human!!!!! Am I right? Navigating what labels society assigns you, navigating the way that others see your physical body (and the way that you see your physical body), navigating any depression or anxiety that comes along with t
We call them stories. Or shadows. Sometimes even trauma. We give many names to our life experiences, the ones that have shaped us for the better or worse. Mine include a laundry list of drugs, alcohol and self-inflicted harm. I did most of that
Knowing that I’ve found my passion and what I believe to be my dharma has been a gift; however, I know for a fact that I wouldn’t have made it this far without the guidance of my mentors. I’ve studied myself long enough to know that I can only
I’m injured…. again. Yoga isn’t feeling good in my body (at least flow yoga anyway). I have a little bit of blame on ZOOM, but I do take full responsibility for my current injuries. It’s my own dang fault for not learning when to take a break.
The T-word is out this week! TRAUMA... We've all got it. And although it's sometimes hard to talk about, it's important to acknowledge it. I'd never heard of Jennifer Harper before, but this wonderful human is helping kids and adults unpack thi
I've always considered myself an asana-based teacher. And, for the most part, I just “get it” when it comes to postural alignment. As a vinyasa junkie, I am always looking for new ways to apply modern movement science to the way I teach classes
You have probably been able to tell that a big part of my journey recently is the practice of anti-racism. It took me a while to realize how much simply presenting as white can shape and change someone’s daily life. This realization has helped
Looking back at 2020, the thing I can recall most was my depression in the middle of last summer and how badly I wanted out... no matter what it took. I knew I was either going to do something incredibly self-destructive or something that wo
There are some big changes happening over in the land of Danni Pomplun. This week on the show I'm interviewed by the one and only Steven Andrew @stevenandrewyoga. Some of you might know Steven as my go-to sub when I can't be with you for class.
Richie Bostock has popped in and out of my world for a little over a year now. My friends over at Fierce Calm @fiercecalm mentioned that we HAD to sync up and I am so happy we did. As one does, we got him to come on the podcast to chat with us
Oh wow... Y'all this episode is a doozy. Listen, when I say something is tough for me, it's REALLY tough for me. In this week's Seeker+Sage, I share about living through one of my WORST NIGHTMARES. Even while opening up about this moment in my
And the podcast is back! Phew! Getting back from my two-week break and I'm feeling pumped. The first show of the year features Adam Carney from Yoga East+West. Truthlyfully. I have been dying to talk to another teacher about their experience wi
Rocky joins me on this LAST episode of the year! In this episode of Dharma Dudes we get into IT! We unpack the ups and downs of this past year including COVID, the yoga world transition, the election outcome and share the truth as we see it! Yo
