REIMAGINING THE WORLD
Space to strive less, engage the senses and simply be.
Living Water is a non-profit organization rooted in the Southside of Richmond. We provide donation based classes and volunteer opportunities to cultivate ones well-being, steward urban ecosystems and grow in community.
Donation based classes include yoga, sound bath meditation, mindfulness and other contemplatives practices. The backyard beehive initiative allows locals to host a hive and learn about backyard bee keeping while helping to contribute to the health of local pollinator population. Our urban community garden provides residents within the community access to healthy foods.
We hope to inspire a new paradigm for living in a sacred and dynamic world, fostering a way of life that lives in harmony with the rhythms of nature and awakens us to embrace life in its fullness.

Before she chose the path of least shoe-wearing, Danielle worked in the corporate world. Most recently, she held a management position at lululemon athletica. As she pursues her long-time goal of teaching yoga, she also knows many of her students are in the hustle and grind of the corporate world she left behind.
With this awareness, she leans into her past experiences to create sequencing and intention that speak to their needs - body + soul. She aspires to create a space for students where they can find freedom and feel cared for. Expect full vulnerability, honesty, and connection - from her, and for yourself

He creates a unique sound healing experience that he calls Elemental Sound Healing. Sound healing is an ancient practice used to relax the body and mind.The sounds activate a natural healing process and work through physical, mental, or emotional blockages within the body.
In 2014, Zoe moved to Richmond with a fierce drive and calling to deepen her yoga practice and pursue her teaching certification. In 2017, she graduated with her 200 Hour Hatha based Teaching Certification with Om On Yoga.
She blends mindfulness tools, philosophy tidbits, creative sequencing, and poetic metaphors. And, seeks to create an experience where one can approach a place of self-integration and awareness. In these moments, the nervous system is calmed, breath and movement is observed, and the mind is not acting as the sole leader.
