The Story Behind Yinsa

When Ancient Ayurvedic Wisdom Meets a Modern Yogi Living in NYC.

About

Who is Daniele Gates

Daniele started taking Bikram yoga classes 10 years ago when she was looking for something to help balance her life as a single parent and a teacher for NYC public schools. She quickly fell in love with that practice, and eventually moved on to Vinyasa and Hatha practices, eventually deciding she wanted to be a yoga teacher. In 2014, she received her 200-hour certification from Pure Yoga, ultimately committing to share the yoga lifestyle with the world. In 2017, she began to focus her work on yoga therapy through two different lenses – Ayurveda and the Chakra system. Then entered her love of potion-making, and in 2018 she began to develop a number of Ayurvedic skincare products for both herself and her clients. To this day, her mission has always remained the same: to help people learn to embrace their individuality and find balance from within.

You May Ask Yourself…

What exactly is Yinsa?

The name “Yinsa” was actually created in a high school science classroom, and it was originally a blend of Yin Yoga and Essential Oils. Today, Yinsa encompasses the basic principles of the dance between Yin and Yang.  The yogic we practice is Yin, allowing us to slowly release trauma and tension while looking deeply within.  Yoga has 8 limbs, and Yinsa asks us to address all of them through self-discovery, physical and energetic healing practices, the study of spiritual texts, journaling, meditation, and self-exploration and discovery.  Like the Gods and Goddesses in our spiritual texts, we’re constantly moving and flowing in our multiple roles. Like Yin, we also require hitting the pause button every once in a while – sitting still and looking deep within ourselves. The Yinsa lifestyle aims to strike a balance between the two.

Yinsa is way more than just yoga

While it is yoga-centric

It’s also an Ayurvedic wellness lifestyle that focuses on nutritional and mindful balance, daily self-care rituals and practices, intentional long-term lifestyle changes, a regular yoga and meditation practice, and the inclusion of joyful, cultural experiences that align with your dosha. By embracing a Yinsa lifestyle, you’re saying yes to more balance, more joy, and a more fulfilled life.
