I started practicing yoga in 2004 and it has been part of my lifestyle since then. Through regular practice of asana, pranayama and meditation I’ve observed many positive changes and with continued practice I’ve been able to cultivate a calm energy and have developed a new perspective on life. As I continue to experience life I find yoga gives me strength to deal with day to day challenges, enhances my relationships and keeps me light hearted.
I started my yoga teacher training journey in 2009 with Shiva Rea Prana Flow® Yoga, who ignited my inner fire and inspired me to spread the rhythm of yoga. I later met Kenny Graham with whom I experienced and completed Anusara Immersion 1. I furthered my studies in Alignment Yoga with Daniel Clement who enriched my ability to guide practioners through safe alignment and to honour beauty and grace in all expressions of hatha yoga postures. I completed Radiant Child Yoga Program with Shakta Kaur Khalsa who introduced me to Kundalini Yoga and it’s dynamic movement and flow of energy. I am dedicated to updating myself and keeping the practice of yoga fresh and alive. Many thanks to Mak & Ayesha who are the Sun & Moon in my life. They are my parents, Karate and Yoga Teachers. They have been my guide from the beginning and may the divine continue to shine light upon them!
I believe practicing yoga is a scared journey where one discovers a whole new universe within. It’s never too early or too late to start, there is no competition as we discover and embrace yoga at our own pace. As we stay connected with the breath we improve on all levels, one step at a time.
Yoga helps me flow through life and stay on purpose. I’d love to share this spontaneous flow where you will experience boundless benefits and unlock your inner potential.
Since the 80’s I’ve been practicing a yogic system of highly energizing postures and exercises that originated in the Himalayas called The 5 Tibetans which kept me energized, motivated and helped me deal with the stress and dramas of everyday life. My personal practice later evolved to include 4 years of Shotokan Karate and 3 years of Bikram Yoga. After this exploration, I decided to dedicate myself to a daily home practice of asana, pranayama and meditation. In 2009 I met my teacher Shiva Rea who inspired me to teach yoga with devotion and compassion.

I am passionate about honouring the body, mind, and spirit connection in all people. I began my journey of Meditation & Solitude at the age of 12 when I was studying in an Irish boarding school in India. This practice filtered into my life and till today I see each person as divine and full of potential. I invite you to join me on this evolutionary journey: Together we will breathe, feel and discover!
My classess will encourage you to embrace the flow and allow the prana to guide you.
Prana: “life-force of creation” Flow: the state of unified consciousness
I invite you to experience yoga as the unfolding from your heart, from the fullness of your inner feeling, explore self inquiry, playfulness, movement and balance.
Dana has been practicing yoga for over 10 years and brings a calm and supportive energy to hatha, flow, yin and restorative classes. She began practicing on a remote island in New Zealand, and has since been inspired by studios in Maui, Montreal and Tulum. After a childhood on the soccer field, prior to finding yoga, Dana was unable to touch her toes. She remembers well how it feels to practice yoga with tight muscles, and the relief that a regular practice can bring for the mind and body. She believes yoga is a practice of showing up for yourself, and accredits it for contributing to her physical, mental and spiritual wellness. She completed her 200 hour training with Rasa Flow Yoga.
