Danielle jumped into the fitness industry while attending Boston University twelve years ago. She became certified through A.F.A.A (American Fitness Association of America) and taught a wide variety of classes for her college, ranging from inline skating on the Charles River to cardio kickboxing.
After graduating college, Danielle spent over four years working for the Boston Sports Club in Wellesley, MA, where she received her NASM® (National Academy of Sports Medicine) certification and became a Master level trainer. She learned how to work with many different bodies of all backgrounds and ages ranging from the seasoned athlete to the baby boomer whose goal was to chase after their grandchildren.
When Danielle moved to Rhode Island she was drawn to teach and train at a small fitness studio called Core in Providence. It was in this community environment that Danielle thrived as a trainer and group exercise teacher. She enjoyed providing students with creative and cutting-edge classes.
While developing her skills as a teacher and trainer, Danielle chose to fuse her strength training background with the flexibility of yoga and the stability of Pilates. She found that clients benefited from all three disciplines, and wanted her clients to receive a well-rounded workout. Danielle became STOTT PILATES ® certified and YogaFit-1® trained, and is looking forward to developing her skills as a mind-body focused instructor. Danielle truly enjoys motivating clients and students to achieve their personal goals through exercise. She is inspired by the power of fitness, and its ability to transform a person’s life both physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Danielle is grateful to call Bristol her home and enjoys taking in the natural beauty of the town with her husband, energetic and loving toddler, and their dog Sophie.

Tara is a 200 RYT in Power Vinyasa Yoga who trained under Gregor Singleton and Claire Este McDonald with Divine Play Yoga. Seeking an alternative to off season training for Division 1 Soccer in college, Tara found herself in a heated room on a yoga mat.
The sound of OM resonated in every cell of my body from that first class. It wasn’t until the end of her collegiate athletics that she realized all the Yoga had to offer beyond strength, and stability. Through her practice she learned that there was a deep power in learning to live the life you dream instead of going through the motions. Today, Tara teaches a class rooted in alignment and experimentation. Encouraging students to do what feels good instead of what looks right.
