Daphne is a spirited, soulful artist and teacher originally from Texas. Her passion for music started from a young age, and since her initial yoga class in 1994, she has explored merging her spiritual practice with her contemporary folk singer-songwriter style.
She studied music at The University of Texas at Austin and The Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, and with kirtan master Jai Uttal. Daphne’s music has been featured on yoga music compilations with Shiva Rea, and she has released three albums, Mata, Finding Water, and Samahita Live.
Daphne has been teaching yoga since 2004 after completing a foundational teacher training in Venice, California. She has taught yoga to children and students of all ages. She is inspired by her friend and co-creator, Ellen Watson, with whom she has birthed SpiritDance SoulSong, a combination of ecstatic dance, sound, singing, and touch. She also embraces the teachings of Shiva Rea, Erich Schiffman, Mark Whitwell, and Ammachi in her daily practice.
