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 released by Soundstrue, Samahita and Yoga Music JP. She has recorded albums around the world including, Bali (Mata), Hawaii (Finding Water), Koh Samui (Samahita Live), Kyoto (Arigato) and her newest album Soulsongs, recorded in Nagano, Japan.
Daphne has been teaching yoga since 2004 after completing multiple teacher trainings in Los Angeles, California. Initially specializing in kids yoga (she found joy & light working with little people), she eventually expanded her teaching to students of all ages.
She is inspired by her friend and co-creator, Ellen Watson, with whom she created VIBRANCE, an embodied movement, sounding, singing and fully integrated practice that brings us back to our medicinal roots of the yoga of dance & sound. She embraces the teachings of Ammachi, Pema Chodron, O.P. Tiwari, Erich Schiffman, Shiva Rea and Mark Whitwell in her daily practice.
Daphne brings her soulful teachings and music to Hong Kong with grace and joy for living life fully. www.daphnetse.com
