Founder of Sage Thai Massage
My name is Danita Medina. I am a Florida Board Licensed Massage Therapist. I have been serving the Central Florida area since 2007. I am a graduate of the Florida Academy of Health and Beauty. I am specializing in working with clients with Chronic pain through Deep Tissue and Traditional Thai Massage.
I continually strive to expand my knowledge and skills through continuing education courses. I believe the best way to serve my clients is to stay informed and current on new techniques in massage and bodywork.
As a licensed massage therapist and a Certified Yoga Instructor, I approach these professions the same way I live my life. As my client, you can be sure that you will be treated with dignity and respect and I will work with you to tailor your sessions so that you gain the maximum benefits. My mission is to provide yoga students knowledge to practice yoga safely and provide massage clients a plan to alleviate pain, eliminate fatigue as well as decrease muscle and joint stiffness. I believe that massage and yoga are healing arts and science, providing a balance both body and mind.
Each client is unique just as the touch of each therapist and the style of yoga instructors are different. Knowing this I keep an open mind and listen to the needs of the client. I use my yoga knowledge, skilled hands and intuitive observations to give you and your body what you need most. Whatever your needs may be, my goal is to restore balance.
I feel profound gratitude to be in these professions and to practice massage therapy. I am truly blessed to be in a career where I can integrate what I do, with who I am, what I feel and where I want to be in life; whole, happy and in harmony with my beliefs. Massage therapy and yoga have so much to offer and I look forward to (literally and figuratively!) touching the lives of as many people that I can!
My Yoga Journey
I was originally going to my first yoga class because I was having chronic hips and shoulders pain. With regular practice, the pain disappeared. Yoga has provided me with balance and stability, strength and endurance, energy and flexibility in both mind and body. My teaching style plays with the freedom that can be found through breath, flow, and motion, and my goal is to guide my students toward the happiness, strength, and calm that is within each of us. I have decided to deepen my practice by taking teacher training under Mylinda Morales at Yoga University of Florida where I earned her 270-hour Yoga certification, I have been blessed to be students of many of international Teachers as well.
40-hour Teacher Training certificate with Bryan Kest,
40 hour Hatha Alignment yoga teacher training with Mylinda Morales,
50 hour Bryce Fit Flow yoga Teacher Training certificate with Briohny and Dice,
