About This Event
Do you spend most of your time taking care of others and little to no time taking care of yourself? Join Dana Smith to explore mindful meditation and eating practices, as well as Yoga asanas to balance the chakras, and daily “Love Me” rituals that will soothe your mind, body, and soul.

Dana's energy is very positive and inviting. She really allows you to embrace yourself, as you are. That is Dana's gift: she helps you feel your best wherever you are RIGHT NOW. — Nicole H.
Working with Dana has been one of the most transformative experiences in my life. She is a real woman with an undeniable gift and a sincere heart for guiding others in accessing their full potential. When I met her almost 10 years ago, I was a student, desperate for clarity and direction. With her real talk coaching and intuitive insight, however, I can say I am NOW joyfully walking in my life purpose, having grown tremendously from potential to practice. What Dana offers cannot be quantified. She offers invaluable tools to soul renewal. — Asha T.
