What People Say

“I was sitting at my computer and realized that I have not taken a lunch break yet. What I realized was that my back wasn’t throbbing and my hip flexor wasn’t kinked up. It’s amazing with all the pain medication, ointments and massage, nothing has stopped the pain. Not until I began working with you. I am amazed at the level of pain relief experienced through our personal training sessions. Thank you for your expertise, understanding and patience.”

Personal Training Client

Dana’s Yoga Student

“When I first walked into Dana’s yoga class, I didn’t know much about yoga. I was just looking for a way to get in shape and be more flexible. After taking her class for years, I ended up learning a lot more than just how to get into poses, how to align my hips and knees, and how to place my hands. I learned about letting go of what is no longer serving to me, and about being present on the mat. I learned that I absolutely love yoga and the many benefits it brings to my life. Dana is a great teacher who always offers different options for each pose so that everyone feels included from beginners to seasoned vets.”

Dana’s Yoga Student

“You are one of the gentlest, kindest, and truly skilled yoga instructors I have ever had.  Over the past five years, I’ve had some interruptions in my practice.  Each time I came back to your class, even though it had been a long time, you remembered me and welcomed me.  Whenever I felt downcast or ashamed at having lost some of my skill in postures, you reminded me that yoga is not about judging yourself, and it is never about competition, even with yourself.  And that has helped me continue with yoga, which I love so much.”
