Lebanese American, Danielle Abisaab started out on the path of conscious awakening as a 500+ Hours Registered Yoga Teacher in NYC in 2002. She moved back to Lebanon in 2005 and founded funky Union Square Yoga studio in Beirut City. She has taught all over the world and offered various signature workshops in the US, Europe and the Middle East. Her mission has always been to inspire confidence and self-acceptance through compassionate teaching, dedicated to helping each student find success in their yoga practice, reach their fullest potential, realize their truest Self, while having fun along the way. Danielle is also proficient in Aerial Yoga, Sound Therapy and other therapeutic approaches she integrates as supportive tools in one-on-one sessions.
Finding hidden gems within the most difficult experiences and transforming them into personal soulful growth, she has drawn from her own trauma as a child of war, the commitment to deepen her understanding of trauma’s effects on one’s nervous system and psyche, while engaging in various therapeutic modalities to integrate and embrace her very own. All of which has allowed her to master the art of holding space for people interested in building their best possible life, compassionately and creatively. Some of her most meaningful work, was spent teaching Yoga, Breathwork and Meditation to Syrian refugee children in the Bekaa Valley camps, for many years.
Understanding her community’s needs, and having been exposed to high levels of stress in her previous life as an architect in NYC, she created a Holistic Wellness Program designed to support employers and employees alike in managing, minimizing, and dealing with stress, using evidence based tools including body awareness, breathwork, mindfulness meditation and sound therapy.
She has chosen Instagram as a social media platform to convey her passion for writing and photography, and has been featured in many articles as one of the most influential yogis on Instagram. You will also find her moving, breathing and instructing on her online video platform yogaholic.vhx.tv
Danielle’s wildest aspiration is for every human on this planet to know that everything they need lies within, to find their way back to compassion and grace, and most importantly, to remember that they are whole and perfect exactly as they are.

“Dani, Union Square Yoga’s founder is full of light and love, which shows everywhere: from her attention to detail in the space she created, to the precision, kindness and humor she injects in every guiding word she offers during class. By far the most empowering class in town” Mia Moussa
