Danny Paradise

Bratislava, Slovakia

August  23. - 25. 2024 

All classes are suitable for beginning to advanced practitioners as well as teachers of all forms of Yoga


Yoga is an ancestral gift to the Human Race from Nature to help reconnect us to the Journey of the Soul. It has connections to all Sacred, Indigenous, Shamanic Spiritual Traditions. Danny begins each class with a short discussion on perspectives of these Shamanic technologies that lead us to healing, evolutionary consciousness and personal communication to the Spirit without the Intermediary, priest or guru.

Danny has been practicing Ashtanga Yoga since 1976 and teaching in 42 countries since 1979. He initially studied with David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff, the first Western teachers and adepts of Ashtanga Yoga learning all the sequences of Ashtanga from them from 1976-1981. In 1978 and 1980 he also studied with the Indian teacher Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. He was an early advanced practitioner and pioneer who played a seminal role introducing people around the world in public classes to the Ashtanga Yoga form. He was the first Western ‘Traveling Teacher’ Of Ashtanga Yoga and continues each year to introduce his style of the exploration of Yoga in new countries.

Danny also has taught some of the world‘s most renowned and talented musicians, actors, sports champions, artists, designers, film directors and dancers.


Danny teaches the Ashtanga Yoga sequences with emphasis on an expanding, evolving practice as well as showing derivative poses, modifications and variations. He strives to create independence from teachers and systems.


Danny draws from the teachings of Krishnamurti, Krishnamacharya, Buddhism, ancient Egypt, contemporary teachers such as Carolyne Myss as well as many Shamanic nature based indigenous native cultures including Mayan, Hawaiian and Native Americans.

He communicates the teachings of ancient traditions in a non-dogmatic, contemporary, compassionate, humorous way. He passes on how to experience and create a meditative, therapeutic and ritualistic Yoga practice.

Danny recognizes Yoga as an ancient Shamanic practice and relates Yoga to all Shamanic, nature based, indigenous explorations from North and South America, Polynesia, Tibet, Africa and Asia. The Yogis and Shamans were the early pioneers of consciousness, healing knowledge, and communication with the spirit realms. The basic premise of Shamanism is that nature is our spiritual guide and teacher. Danny’s main objective is guiding people to evolutionary consciousness as well as to help people develop a healing, sacred, personal, meditative, joyful, non-dogmatic Yoga practice.


Yoga is designed to create well-being, help people fulfill personal destiny and learn to age with vitality, energy and grace. Danny teaches Yoga as a means of creating personal authority, personal responsibility leading to universal responsibility. Danny also has studied Kung Fu, Tai Chi and Karate. Danny is a musician, singer, songwriter, performance artist, Human Rights Activist, film maker and film producer.
