Dana is the best yoga teacher I’ve ever had. After stops and starts with yoga in college and adult life, she is finally the reason I stuck with it … and got both my mom and husband hooked. Dana meets you at your level and then gradually pushes you to do things you didn’t realize you could do. My husband has two injuries from car accidents and she made adjustments so that he could still practice and benefit from the sessions. She’s also great about explaining what’s happening to your body as you go through different positions – this way, you actually understand how the breath, muscles and blood flow are all working. But she’s not one of those teachers who talks all through practice and leaves you wishing for quiet – she finds just the right balance. I really cannot recommend her highly enough – if you’re contemplating yoga, know that a good teacher makes all the difference. And that teacher is Dana!

Dana has been my private Pilates instructor for the last three years. She’s an extremely loving and beautiful teacher both inside and out. She challenges, motivates and her worldly knowledge about the health and fitness industry is very moving. She’s very passionate about her teachings and the fitness industry benefits tremendously by inspired professionals like Dana. I am proud to have Dana as my Pilates instructor.

I’ve been going to Dana for weekly personal Pilates instruction for years now. I look forward to our sessions every week, which is not something I can say about all aspects of my exercise regimen! Dana always comes prepared with a diverse and evolving set of exercises that are tailored to my specific needs, never feel monotonous, and are persistently challenging without being intimidating. Since she knows I also do yoga (and has instructed both myself and my husband in yoga as well!), Dana fits a degree of yoga instruction into our sessions, which I appreciate. Most of all, she is a delightful person to spend time with — encouraging, non-judgmental, relatable and cheerful.
Dana has been my private yoga instructor for two years. Prior to working with Dana I had a beginner’s experience with yoga. Now, two years later, I am hooked and absolutely in love with Ashtanga yoga! Dana’s approach is very caring, encouraging and rooted in true expertise. Dana is the real deal. I admire her dedication to yoga which results in her traveling to India annually to deepen her own practice . Emotionally and physically I am in the best shape of my life – all thanks to Dana…
Dana is friendly and energetic and non-judgmental, so you can go to her no matter how out of practice you are. I go to her regularly, and she knows my habits and needs. I always feel totally comfortable with her.
