90 Day Fiance: What Daniele Gates Really Does For A Living

You may remember Daniele Gates best from "90 Day Fiance" spinoffs "90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way" and "Love In Paradise: The Caribbean," with fans getting an inside look at her romance with her husband, Yohan Geronimo. As fans of the show will know, Gates lived in New York City (and made no secret of the fact she didn't exactly love life as a singleton in the Big Apple!) before deciding to leave the concrete jungle behind after meeting and falling in love with Geronimo during a vacation to the Dominican Republic. Gates then headed to paradise for an extended period to get to know Geronimo better, which involved taking a sabbatical from work — and a few falsehoods about his visa application to move to the U.S. that didn't exactly go down too well with many viewers. 

Gates was determined to move to the Caribbean to live with Geronimo, but he had other ideas and wanted a life in the U.S. "In my country, you work for years and years and you don't have anything. Here, the salary you earn is just enough to live the day by day," he explained to People, with Gates claiming her husband expected her to pay for everything. But what exactly is it that this reality star does for a living?

Daniele Gates has her own yoga business

Yep, Daniele Gates is a businesswoman! As "90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way" Season 4 viewers will already know, Gates started her career as a teacher in 2007 after receiving a Master's degree in Sociology/Interdisciplinary Race Studies at Stony Brook University. She revealed on the reality series that she planned to quit her teaching job to move to the Dominican Republic, also claiming that if she stayed in the position another year she would be entitled to $15,000 extra a year in her pension — though she didn't seem too worried about her finances. In 2018, she made the move to found her own yoga company, Yinsa, and describes herself as a Yoga and Ayurvedic wellness consultant.

Gates specializes in Vinyasa and Hatha practices and became a certified teacher in 2014, which developed into creating her own Ayurvedic skincare products that she sells via her company. Gates also offers several different services and events through Yinsa, including hosting events and workshops, private yoga sessions, and retreats. Writing on Instagram in February, the "90 Day Fiance" reality star revealed her big plans to put on week-long retreats for her clients, which she claimed are designed to help individuals heal trauma. Gates has also compiled her work in a journal, "The LiveYinsa Journal: An Elemental Grimoire," which she sells via Yinsa's website.

Daniele Gates' money woes

Though Yinsa appears to be going strong from the outside, Daniele Gates' business venture hasn't been without its ups and downs. In Touch claimed in February that the reality star had filed for bankruptcy in 2022, alleging she had assets to the tune of $22,420 but $224,584 in outstanding liabilities. As for how much she was supposedly earning from her work? The outlet claimed her monthly income was $4,717, much less than her $6,017 reported expenses, and that she was still paying off thousands of dollars in student loans.

As for where Gates is settled these days, she's probably a remote worker most of the time, as she appears to split her time between New York City and the Dominican Republic with her husband, Yohan Geronimo. Gates often tags snaps on Instagram from Brooklyn or the Dominican Republic, where Geronimo still resides, which could explain reports claiming she doesn't have much money in the bank. Living in New York is expensive enough — add traveling to and from the Caribbean on top of that — and it wouldn't be too surprising to find out that Gates probably has a few hefty bills each month!
