Hello! My name is Charity Grace, and I am a trauma informed yoga teacher and a student of Ayurvedic gut and hormonal health. Ever since I was a child, I have been drawn to self healing and curious about the holistic lifestyle. After suffering decades of chronic migraines, fatigue, and depression, as well as attending hundreds of doctors appointments with no relief, I started to heal myself with the holistic tools I had learned when I was young. After curing most of my physical and mental health issues, I dove into studying ways to help others. Looking forward, I am now a certified and registered yoga teacher, specializing in yin yoga, trauma management, as well as sound healing and Ayurvedic gut health. I am excited to spend the rest of my career helping people find their connection to nature and to their true self, without the heavy reliance on western practices. I currently teach yoga and hold sound baths at local studios all around Boise, Idaho, and eventually, I plan on opening a retreat center in Central America where those struggling with their health can come and heal and find their true source of earths life force.
I’m Dani Forbess and I work as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and a Yoga Instructor. My goal is to create the possibility for people to see their path to healing and to help them achieve it. I worked for 20 years as a pastor in the Presbyterian church where I launched an artistic healing community, helped to open a community garden, coached cheerleading, and worked with the non profit sector to open a homeless shelter. I now live in Eagle with my husband and three teenagers. You can find us skiing, mountain biking, or at the gym.

She is passionate about finding peace in her body through yoga and inspiring others to do the same.
I started yoga to recover from a hamstring strain. From there, I developed a passion for vinyasa yoga because of the relationship I was able to establish between my movement and my breath, the harmony between my mind and body, while focusing on giving my body grace and compassion. I’m looking forward to depending my yoga knowledge and practice by exploring yin and restorative yoga to balance out my vinyasa practice.
After years in sales in the pharmaceutical and banking industries, I’ve been able to switch gears and focus mainly on my family and pursuing interests such as fitness, volunteering, and creative pursuits such as interior design with my teen daughter.
Idaho born and raised, I started practicing yoga in the Treasure Valley at the age of 10.
