Danay DiVirgilio – Founder
Danay has dedicated her life to making a difference for children and teens. She has experience working as a behavioral therapist for children with Autism, teaching teenagers a relationship-based approach to business and Masters degree in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica.
YogaBuddies was created by combining Danay's valuable experience with her care for children and her passion for yoga. Because she lives the life she teaches, the YogaBuddies program continues to be a learning and growing experience for Danay as well as for the entire YogaBuddies team.
Danay is a 7-year breast cancer survivor and a proud new mom as of August 2012. Her experience continually motivates her to share the skills she's learned with others.
