Meet Daniel Blakeman

Daniel Blakeman began teaching biofeedback, mindfulness, relaxation therapies, and gentle movement while working on his Master’s Degree in Sydney, Australia in the early 1990s. Over the last 10 years, he has led almost 10,000 hours of yoga asana and meditation classes, incorporating these philosophies into his classes. These skills also contribute to his main endeavor-being a single parent to two teenagers.

Daniel teaches 5 regular classes per week at the CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center and has led many meditation workshops, special interest groups, and mindfulness seminars over the 7 years at the Center. His focus on patience, self-awareness, and organic alignment in yoga asana allows continuing growth and enhanced self-acceptance as long term benefits of a yoga practice.

Join him on Friday, June 21st from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm for a special yoga experience in our Green Roof Garden. This Summer Solstice Class is a fun way to acknowledge the history of the Importance of the Cycles of the Sun and Earth and their contribution to the first 3,000-4,000 years of yoga. This class will include Early Seated Postures, Surya Namskar (Sun Salutations), and a somewhat whimsical discussion about early Hatha Yoga Philosophy regarding the Sun and Moon.

In his spare time, Daniel spends time in his garden; so vegetables and flowers are the fruits of his love and labor. He is also a poet and writer, keep your eyes open.
