Daphne is a spirited, soulful artist and teacher originally from Texas. Her passion for music started from a young age and took her west to Los Angeles after university. Since her initial yoga class 20 years ago, she has explored merging her spiritual practice with her contemporary folk singer/songwriter style. She studied music at The University of Texas at Austin, The Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, kirtan with Jai Uttal and sound healing with Jonathan Goldman. She has travelled extensively sharing her music and teachings around the world. Her music has been featured on yoga music compilations with Shiva Rea, Samahita LIVE, and she has released 2 solo albums, Mata and Finding Water.
She has been teaching yoga since 2004 after completing her foundational teacher training in Venice, CA. Initially specialising in kids yoga, she found joy & light working with little people and began branching out and teaching students of all ages. She embraces the teachings of Shiva Rea, Erich Schiffman and Mark Whitwell in her daily practice.
In 2009 while living in Bali, Daphne co-founded SpiritDance SoulSong with her friend and mentor, Ellen Watson. SpiritDance SoulSong is an embodied movement, sounding, singing and fully integrated practice that brings us back to our medicinal roots of the yoga of dance & sound.
Daphne brings her soulful teachings and music to Hong Kong with grace and joy for living life fully.
