Biography

Arnell Tiongco Garcia (Daniel) is both a Fitness Coach and Yoga Instructor at Thanyapura. He is a former professional dancer specializing in Jazz and Contemporary styles, and spent 20 years travelling the world, competing in international dance competitions and touring for events. Daniel was also part of Douglas Nierras Powerdance, a renowned jazz dance company residing in the Philippines, whose dance is titled “Sayaw ng mga Puso at Kaluluwa” (Dances with the heart and soul). He is fully certified in Yoga teaching, and specialises in Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga practices.

As a Yoga Instructor, Daniel leads the popular Restorative yoga class, which is a passive style of yoga. Poses are held for as long as 10 minutes with the aid of yoga blocks, yoga pillows and blankets. Restorative yoga is effective for everyone, from top-performing athletes to those who struggle with anxiety and insomnia. Daniel’s YIN yoga class is passive yet more intense in terms of the positions held (around 3 minutes for each asana). Comparatively, his Hatha yoga class covers the foundations of yoga, and his Vinyasa yoga class is for intermediate and advanced students.

As a Fitness Coach, Daniel leads the Pilates class 3 times a week, which helps clients to strengthen their core and back, increase their flexibility and improve their body’s alignment. His Zumba class is high energy and great fun; participants at all levels enjoy sweating along to the music.

Coach Daniel first came to Phuket in 2001, where he worked as a dancer at Le Meridien Hotel Resort & Spa before returning to the Philippines in October 2004. Although his passion for dance never waned, he chose to run his own internet cafe business for 7 years. Following the closure of this venture, he returned to Phuket as an Activity Instructor and became the Activity Manager in one of the 5* Hotels in Laguna Phuket before joining the Thanyapura team in late 2018.

Daniel is passionate about sharing his knowledge with all who wish to restore their bodies and strive towards their own best practice.
