Dana is a registered Yoga Medicine therapeutic specialist, who is passionate about blending eastern and western perspectives in her teaching. She travels across the globe to lead 200HR and 500HR Teacher Trainings with Yoga Medicine and Tiffany Cruikshank, and is an anatomy lecturer for the Creature Yoga 200Hr Teacher Training program in Byron Bay. Dana is a contributor to Yoga Journal, Yoga Digest, Well Being Yoga Experience, DIY Active, and Yoga Medicine’s social media.
Dana's personal yoga practice began almost 20 years ago. She was introduced to yoga through her dance teacher at 12 years old and practiced daily in high school in place of traditional gym classes. She developed her personal practice in her mid-20s, strongly drawn to mental and emotional benefits during a time of change and uncertainty in her life. Physical injuries brought her to delve deeper into anatomy and the therapeutic side of yoga. Dana became a mum in 2018 and has found yoga immensely helpful in this new chapter of life. She loves sharing the practice with new mums and mums-to-be.
