Dana began practicing yoga during 2010 to bring calm and ease to her mind during her hectic college days. After retuning home and practicing at Yoga Shakti for a few years, she knew she wanted to share this practice with others. Dana completed the 200-hour foundational training at Yoga Shakti, and is currently enrolled in the 300-hour advanced training. In her own practice, she likes to challenge her body in new ways, increasing her knowledge of advanced poses to share with her students. Dana feels that yoga brings strength and peace to those who practice because she has experienced this in her own life. During her classes she strives to help her students reach their full potential in a non-competitive and safe environment. When she is not teaching or practicing, you may find her hiking, playing volleyball, or furthering her education. As a full time profession Dana teaches elementary age children with disabilities, drawing inspiration from all of her students daily.
