Here at Breathe True Yoga, our mission is to help connect participants to different modalities of meditation and yoga in order to raise their own consciousness and move towards personal enlightenment. We aim to offer authentic, eclectic and creative approaches to the process of awakening each individual. Although we borrow from many of the sacred traditions, particularly those of Buddhist, Hindu, Christian and Native American Indian, we are non-sectarian in our teachings. We also believe that the most effective means to personal transformation is an experiential one. Thus we provide many diverse modalities in our workshops to create opportunities for self growth. For example, when teaching about the chakra system, our techniques may include yoga, mantra, philosophy, visual art, dance, sound journeying, clowning and who knows what else? Here at Breathe True Yoga, the practices taught are well complimented with a clean diet and wellness programs that include hiking trails, swimming, and paddling the beautiful Little Mississippi River. Whenever there is a gathering of like minded people, the individual spirit becomes aligned with the Great Spirit. So come visit us and tap into your Greatness. Enjoy the stillness. Partake in the gifts of the teachings of our predecessors who teach spiritual discipline and truth. Take the opportunity to go deep into yourself; to rejuvenate your body, mind and soul. Be the dream and the dreamer. If this excites you, come and play! And remember, when you change yourself you change the world.

Daniel has been composing music for 4 decades, and through deep meditation practice has come to recognize the musical nature of all being. He obtained an Honours B.A. in Philosophy from Western University (1993). After building a successful music publishing company, running a corporation and learning all the ways of samsara first hand, Dan has become a self-healer and decided to use his media talents to help people to unlearn the conditioned patterns that keep them from flowering into their higher consciousness. Some of his many interests include Vipassana meditation, dark retreats, dream yoga/ yoga nidra, kundalini yoga, ancient knowledge of the enlightenment process, and exploring the common experiences of awakened beings and mystics from all cultures. Dan has studied the Ayurvedic system and the 5 elements, incorporating them on a deep personal level through his own healing journey. His mission is to communicate that which is beyond communicating, to express what is beyond expressing, and to do without doing. And he loves to canoe and play in the forest.
Dan is the creator of the documentary “Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds”
