I joined Dani's level 2 class today and was delighted with the pace, the intentionality to connect our breath with our movements, which were both gentle and challenging. I love how Dani offers levels of difficulty for those who want more intensity, all the while reminding us to move with ease and softness. Dani helps me find areas of my body I am clenching and cues us to release tension, release expectations and be present. The ending Savasana's are Ah-MAZ-ing! So very nourishing and relaxing. I'm enjoying my experiences with Dani's classes and the community she is building. ~ Debbie P ❤️
I just spent hours looking through your website and wow....just wow!!!! I felt this calm come over me as I went through it. It was so well planned out and brought so much clarity. It was like reading the calmest, kindest reminder of every thing I know but you gave me some great ideas to add. You have really created a gift to the TMS community. Your nervous system grounding exercises are a huge addition to my life right now. I am now 2 years into tapering off meds and 1 more year to go. I have been coping with this by using TMS techniques but your class is helping me the most. I don’t easily open up to people but your honestly and kindness have really meant so much to me. Dani you've added so much to the TMS community. I really wish all the happiness, you are so inspiring. ~ Debbie G
Deeply relaxing and very nourishing yoga for the TMS community! Dani's Reset & Restore class is absolutely incredible, a very safe space to rest, rewind and relax whilst having a gentle and curiosity as to what is going in on your body and mind, without the obsessing part! A true gift for the TMS community, highly recommend xx Susan xx
I wept with relief and gratitude that I was in Dani's Reset & Restore class today. This was my first class with Dani. I have a long history of pushing myself to physical injury fueled by my perfectionism and pride to fight against my pain. I felt at ease with Dani guiding us. I placed my hands on my body and felt the nourishment of air with each step in the 3 step breathing, just as Dani described it. I felt LOVE and deep peace and it brought me to tears and I felt safe emotionally and physically present as we moved so intentionally through the practice. I am learning to LOVE my body and explore its capabilities while healing my TMS. The pace of this class was gentle, the cueing was easy to hear and follow, and the meditation at the end was EPIC. Thank you for sharing your giftedness and journey, Dani. I'm eager to spend more time in this community and thank you for allowing me another 2 days to repeat the class. ~ Debbie P ❤️
I am benefitting SO MUCH from your classes and I wish I could attend live more often, but just know that you've helped me begin restoring mobility (my PT was really impressed this week) and gain some calm and progress with TMS. Thank you!! ~ Katrina x
Soooo powerful having TMS symptoms validated and considered all the way through this brilliant yoga session. It really helped me to begin to find my confidence in my yoga practice, once more. And lovely to share the space with other yogis who understand! Thank you Dani! I'm really grateful to you! ~ Claire ❤️
I tried one of Dani's Level 1 classes and it really helped to relax me and make me feel more alert after feeling on edge all morning because of a bad dream last night. I felt so relaxed that after the session, something that would have normally stressed me out a lot at work didn't stress me out as much. And I really just feel so much more alert, which I find astonishing - for context I spend my days in a haze of anxiety. Another thing that is surprising is that, I normally go for the more advanced faster flow class probably because I don't want to slow down enough to feel discomfort and anxiety, but I found it somehow more real to slow down and see and feel my body wherever it was. Dani, thank you so much for creating these classes for the TMS community! ~ Anon ❤️
I’ve been afraid to say this out loud incase I jinx my recovery but as it’s the last day of the month here goes 😊 My migraines have reduced by 80% in January and I’m sure it’s all down to your classes Dani ❤️ so it’s a massive “THANK YOU” from me 🎉😘😘😘 I’ve suffered with chronic, almost daily migraines for at least 8 years and can’t believe this shift.... but forever grateful ❤️❤️ Jane xx
Your class yesterday, my goodness it was the most relaxing yoga class I have ever done. Years ago I did a lot of yoga but as my fibromylagia/TMS got worse I ended up letting go of it all. I think the mental pressure was even too much as well as the physical. Your class was the first I have done in years and I felt my nervous system completely melt. And I LOVED the fact it wasn't really about asana. So thank you SO much, I will certainly be joining in more. Oh, and it was by far the most relaxing savasana I have ever experienced! ~ Kim ❤️️
I’m not new to yoga but as someone healing from chronic pain, I was excited to try Dani’s classes because of the her particular mindbody focus. Although most of the poses are familiar to me, it’s great to have live instruction from an expert. Dani is a great teacher. She's wonderfully warm and reassuring and there is no pressure to be 'perfect' so we can feel safe while working within our own physical limits. I particularly love how Dani incorporates lots of breathwork and meditation into the classes. I’ve picked up some great new tips and tricks for self-soothing, which are making their way into my own practice. I end every session feeling totally relaxed and chilled out. Thank you, Dani, for creating this virtual safe space for healing and a wonderful community to go along with it. ~ Phil ❤️️
When you've tried everything for chronic pain you can feel reluctant to part with your money as so often the things we desperately chase to help make no difference, but this couldn't be less true for yoga with Dani. The classes are wonderful for so many reasons- reinforcing the TMS beliefs and affirming we are on the right path, connecting with so many friendly, encouraging and welcoming members of the community, calming the mind and body and offering a safe space to heal. I couldn't recommend them more and always feel such relief after taking this time for myself. ~ Charlotte ❤️️
I have to tell you how much I’m enjoying your classes. They’ve given me the confidence to participate in yoga again after a break (due to pain) for several years. I had tried a couple of YouTube videos over the past year on my own, but I ended up scaring my poor nervous system after the first attempt at a downward dog! Triggered pain and I lost confidence. But your approach is so gentle and calming and geared to people (like me!) who have a lot of fear of movement that I’m more confident to move now and try new things (albeit slowly and gently). So, thank you so much! ~ Lauren ❤️️
Despite having no yoga experience, a lot of excess weight, rock bottom fitness levels, cripplingly low self-esteem, significant anxiety, a touch of depression and chronic knee, hip, lower back and neck pain - I simply couldn't have imagined the immeasurably huge impact this one hour a week was going to have on me. Yoga, meditation and breathwork are now a part of my daily routine. My whole emotional outlook has changed in positive ways too numerous to mention. My body is full of possibilities now, no longer a physical and emotional weight around my neck. To see the love and support this community gives back to Dani makes me SO happy for her. Dani I can't wait to see what 2021 brings for you, you work so hard at everything you do and you give so much to others. You deserve alllll the good stuff! ~ Suze ❤️️
Anxiety has, undoubtedly, been one of my most persistent and disruptive TMS symptoms; it is more difficult *for me* to manage than my physical symptoms (which are also ever present). This afternoon I did my fourth yoga class with Dani...and today is the first day in over 6 months that I didn't have a panic attack, nor did I have to take any meds to distract from the distressing symptoms happening in my body. Any disbelief I previously had in a yoga practice having the ability to help down-regulate a hyper-aroused nervous system is officially GONE. Thank you, Dani ❤️️ And to everyone who said this practice is their favorite part of their week - I feel you, because me too (!!!) I am so looking forward to continuing this into the New Year, and connecting with more of you on your healing journeys 🥰 Here's to the little victories every day 🙏 Alexandria ❤️️
Thank you for this amazing class today Dani! I experienced a much deeper release today than I ever have. My neck surrendered ❤️️!️ Love to you and all you do. Happy New Year and may we all continue to heal, love Amy ❤️️
I had the most amazing first class today, Dani. Thank you. I entered the class coming having just come down from a panic attack as I having a pelvic pain episode (it's been gone for weeks then this morning, bam, so I freaked out) and by the time we were done, I was SO calm and felt 500 times better. I am so looking forward to attending regularly. Thank you for offering this for us TMS folks ❤ !!! ~Alexandria Pavelich
What I loves most about your classes is the flexibility and gentleness of your approach to the relaxation and meditation part as much as the yoga movement. Meditation has never worked for me before because sitting up I can never relax enough. The fact I can lie down and get comfy wherever and however works for me has been a revelation. I'm really delighted, thank you ❤️️ ~ Debbie x
Dani is superb! She is the living-breathing TMS slayer as they are made! She is a daily inspiration, her humbleness abour her own experience and her selflessness about giving to others is so authentic. Although I don't have chronic pain anymore, I still have a typical TMS monkey mind. Her deep soothing yoga voice and her knowing guidance calmed my monkey mind and reminded me to breathe deep into my core and be one with my breath. Looking forward to stopping by at one of your classes again soon! Happy Holidays, you sweet soul! 😘. ~ Grete x
This class is a warm hug, a kind word, a gentle smile, a sweet and caring place to rest your soul and body for an hour. It lets your mind open and your heart lift up to such endless possibility. The calm I feel afterwards has lasted and lasted and lasted. Dani is gifted beyond measure. 😘. ~ Jen
I have done a few sessions with Dani so far, she is a fabulous teacher, you feel no pressure to perform or perfect anything just her warmth, experience and understanding. She leads you to a very calm special place and over the last 2 weeks I have felt my symptoms reduce after constant headaches for 6 years,! I am also much calmer internally, learning how to breathe has been invaluable, she even taught me breathing for the school run! So happy that Dani is building such a great supportive community, thank you 😘. ~ Eleanor
My first time doing the Level 2 class! I was a little bit afraid to do down dogs with my arm pain, but Dani made it so safe and comfortable, and I was able to do things for just as long as I could, and then rest, and then give it another try. I really feel like I taught my brain that it is safe to move my body. Thank you so much, Dani! ~ Robin
I just did the recording of yesterday's level 2 class and loved it. I was scared it would just be way beyond my ability, but most of it was fine once I reminded myself to just do what my body is comfortable with and stop trying to push to the limit. It still felt like I was in the actual live class but I did miss the Q&A and pet parade at the end 🤣🐾 Thank you soooo much for these classes Dani, the benefits I'm feeling already - mind and body - are incredible. Love you ❤️️ ~ Suze
Hi Dani. I loved the new level 2 class, it was just challenging enough without being too much and I’ve booked for next week. These classes and the community you have created have been the missing jigsaw piece for me in my journey, I’m now accepting the symptoms without fight or fear and have more tools to deal with them 😘❤️️Can’t wait for 8pm tonight! Jane xx
Yummy, relaxing, gentle yoga, expertly guided by Dani. Exactly what I needed, thank you ~ Laura x
Hi Dani, I just wanted to share a bit of my feelings today, I came to class feeling super low and I didn’t think I was going to even get through it. Anyway I kept going and then when we started to sit back down and winding down and then the poem you read and the rain sounds with the music really helped me let go. I feel better and just wanted to give you a big THANKS 🦋❤️~ Joanie
Dani has a gentle, loving and humorous personality that guides anyone lovingly through yoga. If you’re looking to relax, calm, and soothe your mind and body, there’s a place for you here to learn how to listen to your breath, move your body, and meditate. She’s creating a community of support for those of us that experience pain in our lives and need an outlet of expression. Love you Dani! ❤️~ Annie
Dani has created a beautiful, safe, personal class which allows me to feel, connect, move and breathe. Having attended many yoga classes in the past, the difference I’ve found here is I’m very present, I’m not judging myself over my ability to ‘perform’, I’ve  ceased comparing my yoga ability to others and I’ve been able to calm my mind and tune in to my emotions (I cry in a good way every time!) Early days but I’m also trying to implement what I learn off the mat too. Dani is so warm, knowledgeable and compassionate... I’m so pleased and grateful to have found this space and so look forward to my weekly class. Thank you Dani... the light in me sees the light in you ❤️❤️~ Jodie
I LOVED my first class yesterday it was the best yoga class Ive ever had as it included so many delicious practices and most importantly didnt overwork my muscles or joints. Loved the humming bee!! Thank you ~ Hadley x
SO healing. This is yoga done right. Thank you for one of the most healing hours of my life, Dani! x ~ Robin
Hey love, just wanted to say I loved yesterday‘s class! I really enjoyed the breath work. Although I’m always in pain (low back, knees and neck) your classes are never too much and help me feel safe. I’m so looking forward to your upcoming plans and cannot wait for a slightly higher level, and the membership option. Sending you oodles of gratitude, (always & forever a regular😂 Lauren 🤍)
Thank you so much, Dani! I did this class again last night and loved it again, that stuff that we did together made me feel so warmly enveloped, I might be beginning to find some true healing. Thank you for helping with that process. The other thing is that being with the group, even though I didn't talk much, I felt the group's love. I am sold on these zoom classes. Love ~ Linda ♥
Hi Dani, I just wanted to tell you that I looooooooved the Tuesday class this week! I just watched the Yoga Nidra recording today and it was so relaxing. I started the day with a headache but it was gone after this class. Many thanks for what you’re doing. You’ve given me the confidence to try yoga again and to feel safe doing so. You are a wonderful teacher. ~ Lauren 😘😘
Tonight I didn't want to show up because of the anxiety, fear and fatigue but my goodness am I happy I showed up. Thank you Dani for making me show up and for sprinkling your magic fairy dust on me...what an awesome class. For the first time in a very long time I was able to be fully present with your enchanting voice..thank you! ~ Amy ❤️
I love your British accent! 😘. I made it through my four weeks of surgical recovery and 12 weeks of chemotherapy by watching British television. I am a misplaced Englander for sure! This class fits perfectly. I am going back to your site to sign up for a bigger block. So very, very pleased to have found you. I am really enjoying the classes. I am getting benefit from the movement but I am getting even more benefit from the words coming out of your mouth.  LOL. Thanks for your help. ~ Jeannie ❤️
I did my first class with Dani yesterday and WOW! I was in the middle of my first flare up in ages and sitting is a huge trigger for me. Imagine my panic when I realised much of the session was going to be seated!! At first I hurt and simultaneously I felt the urge to push harder. Where's the planks? Where's the big stretches? And then about halfway through the pain just disappeared and I felt so relaxed and calm and I didn't want to do those big yoga poses anymore. I was happy just to be there in the moment with my body, something that's never happened before. I slept amazing last night and today I can feel the flare losing its grip. Just amazing. And proof that calming the nervous system is key. So thank you Dani. I am determined to do another session again soon :-) ~ Amy x
Today was my first day in the class, I felt welcomed and at ease. Im really glad Dani talked about calming down the nervous system. That’s really why I joined, I felt better after the class was over even though some of the stretches were a little tricky because I haven’t stretched out in a year. Thanks Dani 🦋 ~ Joan
Friends, if you have not taken a class with Dani you are missing out! She has created such a safe & loving space, supportive community, & always normalizes the TMS experience. I’m incredibly thankful for this beauty. Even though we don’t know each other and live on opposite ends of the world I know she’d be there for me, or any of us, in a minute. Dani’s website, Instagram and classes will pull you out of the TMS darkness..and I mean bottom of a black hole wanting to end it all darkness. No matter where you are or your time zone hop into a class! It’s my fav midday work break & something I look forward to ❤️ Thank you Dani for restoring my hope, & life❤️. ~ Lauren
My first class with you Dani and i felt so relaxed at the end of it, slept very well and deeply. I can't do all the moves at the moment but am getting there and the gentle pace and thoughtfulness of your class is so good. I enjoyed the music, the poem and the hip opening exercise which you showed us that caused a vibration in the body, I found it very powerful. You generously put so much thought and care into the routine Love Jan x
I took part in my first Yoga with Dani Fagan class tonight despite fears about pain flare ups and still struggling with my lung capacity following covid. I loved it, it was emotional, comforting and soothing. Yes I'm still in pain but I'm pain proud of myself for showing up for myself. Dani is a wonderful yoga instructor, she takes into consideration people's limitation and give multiple variations of poses depending on your ability. Would thoroughly recommend people trying this, it's a gentle exercise class wrapped in a warm hug of love. I will definitely be attending again. I went to bed a bit sore from flare ups, but this morning I've bounced out of bed like Tigger. Gone out for breakfast and shopping for the first time in 6 weeks. It's like my nervous system just went "Ahhhh and breathe!!" Dani you're an actual miracle worker 🥰🥰🥰 xx ~ Paul
I've been to several yoga classes over the years and none of them came close to this one. Dani created such a safe and beautiful atmosphere for us, and knew everyones TMS symptoms! She let us know alternatives we could do if we were experiencing flares, and it was such a deep state of relaxation that my symptoms vanished for a while! I particularly loved when we spent a few minutes in the fetal position. It was such a soothing, calming practice that can easily be done by anyone. Thank you, Dani! ~ ❤️ Robin
I am so grateful to Dani for creating this space of slowing down and gently moving our body with compassion and love through her restorative yoga class. It's just what this community needed and what my body has been craving for so long. Dani is so compassionate, knowledgeable, and gentle, moving slowly through each pose. Most importantly it felt safe to move my body again. I honestly did not think I could do an hour of yoga, but I did! I'm so proud of myself and for Dani getting me into my body and out of my head. I truly feel like everything is awaking up! It also felt very intimate like Dani is in room with you guiding you every step of the way. The relaxation practice at the end was gold! I had such an emotional release through my body. The tears were flowing effortlessly. Thank you Dani for sharing your gift of being a natural healer and an amazing human for me and this lovely community! ~ Jody
I was told I wouldn't be able to do yoga for a year after my first spine surgery. Thanks to this special soul, I felt empowered to try my first yoga class since March, and I'm really proud of myself. I didn't let fear of movement scare me and I trusted my body. Dani is a phenomenal yoga instructor and she created this special community to help peoplejust like me. I am so greateful for her guidance and support. It's everything I needed. ~ ❤️ Dana

(Check out Dana & Krisanna's amazing video testimonial here!)
There’s something about Dani! It is not only the unbelievable empathy she demonstrates for whatever niggle/ stress/ experience you may be experiencing. I felt completely understood with zero judgement and it encouraged me to open up and discard the stoical front. It’s also her very clear, gentle encouraging teaching style- one that makes sure I slowly gather confidence in what my body can do without risk of injury or feeling limited. A very talented yogi- I am so excited she has decided to share her talents and knowledge of healing with us! ~ Pami
I've practiced yoga on and off for 20 years, but Dani's classes have made me approach yoga in a totally different way. Her gentle restorative style melds perfectly with TMS practices, concentrating on the mind, body and soul connection, listening to the body and anchoring with the breath which really helps me release all that stuff I've had lurking beneath the surface for so many years. I'm excited to be on this journey with Dani, her TMS advice to me has proved invaluable, and now bringing these techniques and practices together with yoga feels like I am finally pushing through my own boundaries to find the peace within myself I've so desperately needed. I love you best ever, Dani. ~ Annika X
I used to go to Pilates to strengthen my back, after being told that was the only way to fix it. I'm only now understanding that I was making the problem worse by overworking and overstretching my back muscles and focusing on the physical symptoms. Dani taught me to stop obsessing over my back and focus on relaxing my mind, I still have a way to go, but this is helping me so much, thank you for the constant insight and encouragement! ~ Matt
I love the fact that Dani doesnt focus on fixing our bodies in her classes, I now know that my mind is the leader to getting to where my body can actually soften, this is a brilliant combination of mind-body principles for us stress illness people. Where has this been all my life? TOTALLY RECOMMEND! ~ Jenny
I've suffered from anxiety for as long as I can rememeber, Dani's teaching makes me feel understood and at peace with myself exactly how I am. The feeling I get from time with her is now leaking into my every day life now I know that I can use what she shows me at any time in the day to chill-out. I can get quite emotional after class, but I now know that's normal and beneficial to me. Love you ~ Sarah
I take Yoga classes with Dani to compliment my cycling training. I recently embarked on a 6 day tour of the South Coast that left my hips, lower back, shoulders and legs feeling extremely fatigued and tight... just a few hours after the last ride we had a amazing yoga session with Dani that not only completely restored the flexibility in my whole body but also allowed me to become completely calm which allowed my body to let go all the tension built up over the previous week which was the best part, the adrenaline just melted. I can't recommend Dani highly enough... if you require a relaxing vibe with a session that will soothe your mind, relieve your body and build your core strength you shouldn't look any further. 5 stars. ~ Dean
I had never really delved into the world of Yoga, but after speaking with Dani and how healing and balancing it can be for not only the mind, but the body and the self - I was intrigued! Dani is superb, the sessions are enlightening in so many ways. I found a place of calm and tranquility in myself which I didn't know was even there - and it's helped me to tap into this since. I felt reinvigorated afterwards and totally trusted her process throughout. As a newbie to Yoga this was very important to me!
Keeping my stress levels and anxiety levels down is vital due to my chronic immunological disease as this can prompt huge pain and flares. Since using Dani's techniques and working with her, I've noticed this had a direct effect with avoiding and predicting future flares, and the severity of them. I cannot recommend Dani more highly, she is fabulous and now a lifelong soul sister - I cannot wait to see what this journey with Dani has in store ❤️ ~ Elle
Dani has such a calming vibe. I love doing her yoga classes! Thank you so much, I feel really relaxed after class, it really helps me tackle the rest of the day. My back is SO much better now ❤️ ~ Jess
