Dani Loxton is one of the best yoga teachers we know. Cool, calm and collected in her own goofy way. We love the relaxed atmosphere she brings with her to her teachings and the giggles aloud (if not expected) in her classes. On top of that, she is an amazing mother to Ivy and her Instagram posts will make you laugh at your phone screen every time she starts a ramble (High recommend you check out her Instagram @daniloxton).

19.Favourite way to spend a Sunday?
Spending my morning with a bunch of radiant pregnant ladies practicing yoga and connecting with their babes. (my favourite part about Sundays!) but continuing the day with Colby and Ivy, it doesn’t happen very often unfortunately. So those very simple Sundays spent out of the house together getting lunch and playing at the park is my perfect Sunday.
20. What is one (just one for now) thing that Ivy has done that makes you giggle every time you remember it?
Every time I think of her I giggle, not over one particular story or moment.
She has the funniest personality I think I have ever come across. She has the perfect mix of funny and creep.

My mum always insisted as a child that I needed to learn to laugh at myself.
its simple advice, but something that has always stuck.

3. Set Goals, but take chances. Don’t try to grow up too fast. It’s a trap.
