About The Teacher
A lifelong food enthusiast, and a student of the body for the past twelve years, Dana offers a range of practices that nourish the body, mind and heart.
Dana has completed over 800 hours of yoga teacher training and assisting, and is a dedicated student of Iyengar Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga and Yin Yoga respectively. After twelve years in the wilds of NYC, she now teaches alignment-based flow and Yin Yoga classes in her home base of Los Angeles.
For the past five years, Dana has also been on the faculty of the Nosara Yoga Institute. She now co-teaches their 200-hour Interdisciplinary Yoga Teacher Training under founders, Don and Amba Stapleton. Because a body in motion needs to be fed, Dana completed a Master’s degree in Food Studies from New York University, and a 617-hour chef certification through The Natural Gourmet Institute of Health and Culinary Arts. She believe as much in the healing power of a good meal shared in good company as in the practice of a well-aligned downward facing dog: each expands consciousness, increases interconnection, and has the power to open the heart.
Dana’s intention is to bring the essence of yoga into practical, daily living through the cultivation of community, awareness in action, holistic, whole-foods education and sensational cuisine.Source: yogascapes.secure.retreat.guru
