Yoga Instructor -
Dana accompanied a friend to a yoga class for the first time in 1994. Initially she hoped only to add flexibility and core strength to an existing workout regimen. It wasn't long until yoga became one of the most integral parts of her life. Through daily practice she found her body getting stronger and her mind becoming calmer. She was grateful to be able to incorporate these changes into all other aspects of her life. After eleven years of dedicated practice she was finally able to find an opening in her life to pursue her passion. Dana completed her 200 hour teacher training program in November of 2013 under the expert guidance of her teachers at Yogaview in Chicago. She feels very fortunate to be able to pass on her love of the practice and the many wonderful benefits that come with it.
