As an experienced presenter and Celebrity trainer, I have appeared on shows such as ITV2’s “The Only Way is Essex”, C4’s "How Not to Get Old" with Louise Redknapp, ITV1's "The David Dickinson Show" and on BBC1's Beauty Expert Edition of "The Weakest Link". On the radio I have been interviewed and filmed with Kiss FM’s breakfast Dj’s Rickie, Melvin and Charlie, Wizard Radio’s Georgia Horsley (Danny from McFlys’s fiancée and Miss England) and Trusseau TV’s Tamara Trusseau (Big Brother’s Bit on the Side’s Psychic).

I am also the spokesperson for Nintendo Face Training, the face of Groupon health and fitness and an expert and Yoga model for Olbas Oil and Sweaty Betty.  In addition to being a regular contributor to The Huffington Post, I travel around the world to teach Face Yoga at luxury resorts including the prestigious Six Senses Resorts and Spas.

I have combined the most effective traditional techniques and the latest research to give the best results for the face and the body in my DVD’s/Apps “10 Minute Natural Facelift”, “10 Minute Natural Body Lift, 10 Minute Natural Mood Lift” . 

Born and brought up in Plymouth, I moved to Bath to study Education and English Literature at Bath Spa University and achieved a first class honours.

After suffering from M.E. for two years, I discovered the amazing health benefits of nutrition, relaxation, exercise, Yoga and Pilates. Wanting to help and inspire others in the same way, I proceeded to complete a Diplomas in Face Massage, Professional Relaxation Therapy, Nutrition and Hatha Yoga with the British School of Yoga. I have also completed introductory training in Thai Yoga Massage, Shiatsu, Indian Head Massage and the Alexander Technique and further training in Meditation. Danielle is a certified member of The Register of Exercise Professionals (REPS).

I am now based in Bath where I offer individual sessions from her private studio as well as in Harley Street, London. 

Why did Danielle start Face Yoga?

My journey began after being diagnosed with M.E shortly after finishing university. Doctors told me that there was no cure for this illness and I would have to live with it for the rest of my life. Determined to find a way to get better, I started researching stress management, natural nutrition, yoga and complimentary therapies. By applying these to my day to day life, I overcame the illness within two years and felt happier and healthier than ever before. I then wanted to help others in the same way, whether it be overcoming an illness, feeling good about themselves or looking the very best they can, so I trained in holistic therapies and began teaching many Yoga classes. My clients were enjoying how Yoga toned their bodies and relaxed their mind, but they were saying to me ‘what about my face?’ I then started researching the face and the way it works and investigating age-old techniques from India and China and put together The Danielle Collins Face Yoga Method. I have been lucky to teach this around the world, on television and in the media. The Danielle Collins Face Yoga Method is now the most popular Face Yoga method taught around the world. My philosophy is that we should all have the opportunity to look and feel the very best we can for our age and to have the tools and knowledge to look after the health of our faces, just like we do with our bodies.
