Danni Pomplun specializes in breaking down the elements of a vinyasa practice in an accessible, fun, and light-hearted way. It is his hope that with each practice, students leave their mat with a stronger appreciation for what the body is capable of and how the practice goes beyond the mat and the physical asanas.

Both as a performing and recording artist, as well as a facilitator of transformational workshops and intensives for many years, Suzanne has received critical acclaim.

About The Community Preschool
The Community Preschool seeks the richness of a diverse classroom by intentionally enrolling families from the varied socioeconomic backgrounds, ethnicities, religious traditions, gender identities, cultures and abilities represented in the San Francisco Bay Area. We enable students to appreciate different perspectives at an early age and to equip them to contribute to a diverse society. Our goal is to influence the lives of young people and their families and communities in a meaningful and substantive way and to shape how they think, how they view the world and how they engage in it.
