Hello, I’m Daniel Chandranayagam,

also known as “danyoga.fit”. My goal is to help you thrive in your life with yoga and fitness.

With more than a decade’s experience in wellness, I can help you on your journey to gain clarity, calm and confidence so there is an awakeningrather than crises – in your life.

About me.

Hey, I am in my midlife myself. I have discovered the quality that yoga, fitness and mindfulness tools have brought to my experiences. Moving better helps you feel better in your body, and that translates to your mind as well. And that helps to build confidence and calm.

We both know you deserve so much better, and we both know you deserve to feel better in your life. And there are tools for this! I thrive on teaching you tools on how to cope and journey towards calm, clarity and confidence in your mind and body.

With my knowledge and experience as a yoga teacher, personal trainer, fitness coach and reiki healer all rolled into one, let’s work together in a yoga mentorship journey to help you build a better body and mind – right now and for your older age.


Aside from personal training, my early fitness career was in boot camp. Highlights of my career are in the right column.

Actually, looking back on my career, I realise I have accomplished so much, and yet I feel I have so much more to do!

My goal is to get you to move you muscles mindfully, so that the mind-body connection grows stronger. This has so many benefits, including ageing well so you can enjoy your finest chapters of your life.

If you struggle with emotional issues – aside from other forms of therapy – yoga breath work, meditation and reiki healing may help you.

Aside from yoga offerings, I currently also offer personal training (especially for men seeking to combat andropause) and energy healing, specifically for animals – see below.


  • teaching yoga to the visually challenged
  • instructing yoga and fitness at a shelter for girls from troubled homes as well as children who are trafficked
  • “Yoga for Runners” and “Yoga for Athletes” workshops with FISAF Malaysia
  • writing a “Yoga for Runners” series for Running Malaysia magazine
  • being featured as a guest teacher in MURFEST 2017
  • successfully running a charity fundraiser for the Furry Friends Farm, my favourite charity.
