Hi, my name is Dana and I love sharing my yoga practice with Asheville both on and off of the mat. When I found yoga, it’s healing powers transformed my entire life and I knew instantly that I wanted to teach everything that I was learning. I earned my RYT certification at the Lakshmi Rising School of Yoga and Wellness in Cabuya, Costa Rica. My training was infused with vinyasa, dance, mantra, meditation, Ayurveda and ritual. I enjoy moving people through creative sequencing and music. I am eager and honored to be a part of this amazing yoga community!

Gentle Yoga (Beginners Welcome)
Saturdays from 2:00 to 3:00 pm
Learn to be gentle with your body. In this class, we slow our pace a little to take time to feel our bodies move and breathe. Gentle yoga is a bridge between moving in flow and staying stationary. We stay in poses long enough to enjoy that we are not pushing ourselves as we strengthen and stretch.
