"Smile at your Challenges"  

Inspiring Evening with Danielle Pashko, her debut book, and spectacular view on Midtown Manhattan.

May 27th, 2014, 6:00 pm 


at the Marriott Hotel: 71 West 35th St, 18th floor, Penthouse

Stunning view of the iconic Empire State Building, the Scandinavian chic decor features an indoor lounge that radiates glamour and allures with seductive appeal. 

"Smile at Your Challenges" is her personal story of overcoming unexpected obstacles (in all areas of life) and even having humor about it. We plan and God laughs, but there's always a reason behind our circumstance.

Danielle believes that we can take all the external measures in the world to achieve health and happiness, but there are never any guarantees. This is a book that invites thoughtful consideration of our relationships with others, our relationship with a higher power and, most importantly, the ongoing relationship with our own selves.


About Danielle:

Danielle Pashko began her wellness career over fifteen years ago in New York City. After losing her mother to breast cancer as a little girl, optimizing her own health became an obsession. As a mature teenager living on her own in Manhattan (and modeling to pay the bills) much of her time was spent studying healing modalities. And at just 18 years old, Danielle was a practicing Reiki Therapist. She trained under a master teacher while also attending The Academy of Natural Healing for her certification as a Polarity Therapy practitioner. By the age of 21 she had graduated from The Florida College of Natural Health as a licensed massage therapist.

While building a reputation as an energetic bodywork practitioner, Danielle became certified as an Interdisciplinary Yoga Instructor from the Omega Institute. She has also studied Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga under Eddie Stern, David Swenson, Wayne Krassner and Shiva Rea. She continued her education and attended The Institute of Integrative Nutrition where she first became certified as a Health Coach. She later received a Bachelor of Science in Holistic Nutrition. Danielle has consulted for several Integrative physicians regarding her nutritional expertise and has worked with clients in some of the world’s leading spas and fitness clubs including: The Sports Club LA, The Reebok Sports Club, Equinox Fitness, Exhale Spa and The Peninsula Spa.

Ironically, after years of living as a “Picture of Health” and becoming the go-to practitioner for everyone else’s physical problems, Danielle was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Her strongly ingrained philosophy of restrictive eating and physical discipline had to be questioned. “Was drinking green juice, going gluten free, veganism and a daily yoga practice a cure all?” While still continuing healthy dietary and lifestyle habits, her personal experience with illness opened a window of exploration to the relationship between emotions and the body’s wellbeing. Her conclusion was that the past chapters of our life are often a reflection of our present health. This prompted her to write the book Smile at Your Challenges.

Danielle has successfully overcome her physical setbacks and never takes how well she feels for granted. Her knowledge has led to lectures, articles and videos on healthy living for several publications including The NY Post, Yahoo Shine, The Jewish Week, Galtime, JCoach, Betty Confidential and NY Wellness Guide.
