About Daniel Hickman

2007 in Tibet.

My background is in sitting meditation, eastern wellness, traditional rock climbing, physical theater and athletics. I trained in raja yoga from monastics. I study the dhamma with lay people in sangha. I am a big fan of the tao…

There are many ways to ‘do’ yoga, there is no ‘right’ way. I think it is really about your being, behavior, relationships, style of life and awareness of it all. I say to look into all the different practices that are available. By way of direct experience your insight and understanding will sharpen. I encourage you to be curious and discerning along your path of self-realization. Focus on the teachings, not the teacher.

I created the Multidisciplinary Yoga Training from my experience of working with various cultures. I work with people with unique conditions.

Past Life

Traditional rock climbing had been my ‘highest’ practice.
I learned the old fashioned way (my friend Matt taught me).
Pinnacle – Strawberry Jam 5.8 of Rocks State Park, Maryland.
I used to fell trees. Dangerously fun, yet taxing on the ol’ bod.
This was Xmas Day of 2015. It was 69 degrees fahrenheit. #climatechange
Natarajasana… early morning in Playa Guiones, Costa Rica.
