Before Daayani Yoga, I never cared for Yin. This is because I took one class that was abominable (and half of it took place on a chair???). Since Daayani Yoga, I not only get Yin, but it's easily my favourite class.

Daayani Yoga offers great virtual classes every weekday morning and evening, and different themed classes on Saturdays and Sundays. They have really helped me through a lot this year. I urge you to take one of their Zoom classes. You can message me and I'll sigm up with you!!
YOU are amazing! I am in awe of the community you and Lianna have built and your creativity, vision and fearlessness! What you are putting out there into the world is such a gift and I am so grateful for the space you hold for us all, the reminders you offer to be unapologetically ourselves and the fire you light to show us how strong we can be. My practice with Daayani is becoming such a special part of my life. I want to do whatever I can to help introduce others to what you awesome chicks are doing!

Daayani’s Yin classes have changed my life. It is now my favorite type of yoga to practice. Daayani appeared in my life right around the time I was losing my grip on a lot. After less than a year of practicing with them, I feel stronger than ever in every way. I truly love how Daayani emphasizes showing up and being a good human out in the world, doing the work off the mat where our compassion and perseverance is needed most. Life is full of shitty surprises and I let it dim my fire for awhile. Daayani helped reignite it. Daayogis are fellow weirdos who embrace all walks of life and all aspects of the human experience. I want to live in Daayani leggings and sports bras. They are seriously the most comfortable clothing I own.

When I accidentally stumbled across Jenna's Daayani Yoga wheel workshop in April, I had no idea that this one class would (or could) change my life. Having practiced yoga for 9 years semi- regularly, it took one @daayaniyoga class to completely and utterly expand my practice. I was instantly hooked and started attending several classes across Daayani's spectrum of offerings. For the first time in my life, I understood what it means to practice yoga holistically. To breathe. To meditate. To tie it all together. For the first time in my practice, I felt connected to what I'm doing. Yoga became not "just" a workout, or a way to stretch sore muscles. Yoga became a way of life. I am so grateful to @lianna_daayaniyoga and @jenna.daayaniyoga to let me into their fold. Daayani is about being who you are and allowing everyone to do just that. Daayani is about showing up, not about performativity. Daayani is about connecting to yourself inside and out. I now somehow get up for 5 am or 6 am class three times week and my weekend mornings start with Daayani as well. I never knew I could be this person that gets up early for an exercise class (though so much more, really). I never knew I could just show up as I am and take what I need and feel so much better when I leave. I went from almost no motivation to work out to taking at least 5 classes a week (plus meditation and tarot). @daayaniyoga has changed my life - I feel I can call my yoga a true "practice" now. While I am far away from Daayani geographically, I feel truly spiritually and energetically connected to them. And I met some outright amazing folkx through @daayaniyoga also. So, thank you, Jenna and Lianna, for doing what you're doing and making me embrace the Daayani way without "making" me do anything at all. I can't imagine life without you anymore.

I started practicing yoga for the first time in my life with Daayani Yoga. I have been a student of Jenna and Lianna's for over a year, deepening my practice and dedication to yoga under their instruction. Now I attend 2-4 virtual classes a week mixing it up with vinyasa, yin-yin yasa, and morning sun-salutations classes. I especially love their intense vinyasa classes which offer new and challenging flows and variations. Over the past year, I have gone from knowing nothing about yoga to being able to do a few inversions, intense forearm balances, leg balances, I have learned to sit with myself and empty my mind during yin, learned to control my breath and most of all-- practicing with Daayani has given me more balance on the mat and also in my daily life. I feel calmer after their classes and it lasts all day. It's truly a gift. They have killer live events with pop up art markets and have a really cool and inclusive community. They have classes for all levels and a darker vibe than other studios I have encountered. Jenna and Lianna have different strengths and styles as teachers and both have equally challenging classes. They also both have killer music taste and playlists that you can follow if you happen to listen to music using Spotify. I would recommend their classes to anyone curious about yoga.

Every Daayani Yoga class starts and ends with exactly what i needed to hear that day. They're why I believe in magic. Daayani Yoga went from sidepiece to bae in record time! Without Daayani Yoga all my coworkers would be dead. Black coffee and donuts. Bitter and sweet. If you're looking for true balance Daayani is where you find it. Not only will you get a good workout but you'll also learn all new fun ways to count in a Daayani class! If you've never felt your hip release to a song about death you're not on my fucking level. Get some Daayani and get right.

Daayani Yoga is a solid crew of dedicated yogis who challenge the smiling falsehood of yogi bliss with an earthy heartfelt manner of compassion and honesty. You will not find perfection here! You will find a really cool family of oddballs and challenges for your body, mind and heart to grow.

My experience with Daayani has been uplifting, positive, and fiery in the direst of times in my life. I cannot thank Jenna and Lianna enough for taking me in as apart of the Daayani coven. Everything they have to offer, the clothing, the yoga, meditation, and tarot classes are infinite in value. There is so much I learned and still learning about myself while being a part of the coven. These morals that I learn throughout the classes have helped calm the negativity in me, and it has helped me achieve one of my ultimatums in life which is to be humble. Daayani is about not just accepting everybody for who they are but building upon those fundamentals to making their students their best unique selves. This is something that is priceless and truly uplifts my spirit, so thank you Jenna and Lianna. I cannot wait to see how much Daayani will burn and blossom!

Love Daayani Yoga's events and brand - they are just like their founders: unique, inspiring, creative, thought provoking, strong as hell, and fiercely independent, all with a wicked sense of humor. They know all the “rules” as well as anybody, but they take what is practical and build upon it, cut through the bs that no longer serves, then throw the tired old rule book out the fucking window and do things their own way, leaving behind limiting expectations. “Build the fire. Burn the rest!" Every event you can expect something new and innovative. They take you through a wicked labyrinth of unexpected shapes and highly creative sequences in which you will surely find your edge, always with a healthy dose of humor to keep it lighthearted and fun as you forge a stronger core in their fiery inferno of sweaty asanas and flows. Already I find myself looking forward to see what events, challenges, and cool products Daayani Yoga will come up with next. So inspired by and proud of them in so many ways: their dedication to constantly improving and coming up with new ways to motivate - themselves as well as their students, for all their commendable contributions to numerous good causes that they selflessly give their time and energy to, their loyal support of local artists and vendors, and for the initiative they took to believe in themselves, take a leap of faith and strike out on their own. There’s a lot to be learned from their examples right there. Two of my favorite teachers and people in the whole world. If your practice needs a breath of fresh air, get yourself over to one of their classes or events, prepare to be challenged mentally and physically, dig deep, and SMILE :D as your body shakes as you burn off limiting beliefs and hold that plank pose!!!

Daayani held their HELLoween event on 10/6 and it was everything!! We flowed together in a dark space, with spooky music and decorations, mats just centimeters apart from each other. The flow, as expected, was fiery, fierce, buttkicking, yet meditative and intimate, connecting complete strangers to move together as one. The space was sold out-- completely packed, there was not room for even one more mat, and all who came did so because they love classes taught by founders Jenna and Lianna. We PLANKED, we flowed, we sweat, we laughed, we rested. Thank you ladies, looking forward to many future events with you!

Daayani’s beer and yoga event was awesome. Got a great workout, enjoyed delicious beer, and was surrounded by some of my favorite people. If you haven't been to one of their events yet, do yourself a favor and go. It's for all levels of experience and is always a great time!!!
– Stephen Murphy
Each and every Daayani event is overflowing with dedication, passion, genuine love for the practice, and most importantly, genuine love for the individuals who arrive on their mats ready to embrace what Lianna & Jenna have to offer. It’s inspiring to see two badass women team up together to create a brand that is so true to their identities and transform it into something for everybody. Beyond their supernatural themes and at their core is pure light, joy, happiness, and generosity for others. Even as a person who does not practice yoga often, I always feel welcomed and capable throughout the class and leave my mat feeling empowered. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for these brilliant and talented women.

Daayani is incredible! Lianna and Jenna are so passionate about this work and it really shows through their teaching and events. They are both so creative and dedicated to getting their message across, and they do so in such a fun, interactive way. Definitely check out the next Daayani event, you won't regret it!
— Jacqueline Lee
Jenna and Lianna have always been amazing teachers and vibe so well off of each other. Now, with Daayani, it’s almost as if they're even more in their own element. It’s obvious their clothing line is amazing, but their events pack so much energy, that if you don’t know what you’re in for, you might forget you’re in a yoga class. And that feels like the point.

My best friend and I have attended the past three Daayani events held at the Spellbound Salon — all of them have been amazing and empowering experiences. Most recently, I attended My Bloody Valentine on 2/16 and it was the best event to date! We flowed to Eminem, planked (and planked, and planked), partnered up for a Thai massage, and relaxed during yoga nidra. The afterparty features local vendors who put their heart and soul into their products; from coffee and dessert, to candles and artwork. The performers during the afterparty were so unique and talented; their individuality is emblematic of Daayani itself. We’re unique souls flowing in unique and beautiful bodies and share our love for yoga and togetherness. Jenna and Lianna have provided an awesomely badass brand and experience for yogis of all levels, ages, and abilities. I’m proud to support them in their endeavors and can’t wait to attend the next event!
