About Danielle Mika...
Danielle is a coach, yoga teacher, speaker, wellbeing advocate and business leader. Her accessible approach to yoga, mindfulness and Ayurveda led her into the corporate space where she has spent a decade integrating the tools of wellbeing into enterprise wide leadership development programs.
Danielle was drawn to yoga and meditation through her personal need for balance, clarity, and self discovery although she didn't know that at the time. But meditating for hours a day was never going to be realistic, so from the very beginning, while learning the classic teachings of yoga, meditation and Ayurveda, she also explored ways of building a modern, sustainable practice.
Today, as a busy working mom of two daughters, Danielle prioritizes her wellbeing practice to navigate the day to day challenges of life. To consistently recreate it. To adapt it. And even to renew it.
For the past 20 years Danielle has worked with business leaders, elite athletes, intact teams, individuals, yogis and people who are completely new to wellbeing. Danielle has also taught alongside Deepak Chopra at the Chopra Centre for 14 years, leading yoga, meditation and talks on mindfulness.
Danielle currently works for Vancity, a financial institution, as their Director, Leadership Development & Organizational Wellness. She leads a team of change makers designing, developing and delivering Leadership Development and Talent Management programs to their employees.
She previously worked as the Director of Mindfulness, Learning and Leadership at lululemon implementing global leadership and wellbeing programs designed specifically for busy employees, ambassadors and guests.
Danielle continues to speak on the topics of wellbeing, mental health, burnout and leadership at prominent HR conferences and wellness events.
Artist | Coach | Yoga Teacher
"Working with Danielle is an absolute gift. It feels like going to the chiropractor and being realigned to spirit/God every session. I leave clear, inspired, connected and focused on what matters most. She is playful, yet direct - her questions cut through to the truth quickly.
The Realign inspired me to begin a committed home yoga practice (something I always wanted but couldn't figure out how to do) - I am in the best shape of my life. I now have rituals for self-care and truly feel so "well". As a coach, she adapted the program and met me where I was - always giving homework and challenges that spoke to me as an artist and that led to major breakthroughs."
