Aya is beyond good for the soul. Feeling so much joy…
Danielle is magical, sincere, inspiring, and masterful.
That. was. delicious.
Aya is what all doctors should order.
My heart leaves lighter and more joyful. Every. Single. Time.
A joyful, high-energy, mindful dance practice, Aya is where meditation, ecstatic dance, and primal movement collide. Weaving simple patterns with free-form bliss, every class is a sacred somatic exploration into self-discovery and authentic self-expression. It’s about awareness, choice, presence, connection, and creativity. It’s about coming home to your body for truth. For bliss. It’s about dancing yourself free.
Founder of Aya®, and owner of Ananda, Danielle Eastman holds a Master’s in Exercise Physiology and has over twenty years of experience teaching conscious dance, fitness, yoga, martial arts, and energy work. After a decade of seeking, exploring, and teaching along the West Coast, Danielle returned to her home state of Iowa to be near family and share Aya with the Cedar Valley. She’s ready to move you.

What is AYA?
Danielle talks about what the Aya practice is all about: joy, bliss, and freedom.
I dance not to look pretty or perfect a series of steps, but to surrender myself to the spirit of movement.
