Dana’a class never disappoints with her creative poses and sequences! She consistently challenges me and supports the growth in my yoga practice through her style of teaching.
My best friend Linda introduced me to yoga in 1994. Although I enjoyed it, my monkey mind didn’t allow me to be fully immersed in a regular yoga practice until the birth of my first son Michael. Serving as a Director of Human Resources for a few decades years while being actively involved with my sons lives, community and social activities, I craved yoga. I dedicated early mornings to my home practice. I travel with a mat in my car “just in case” there’s a class I can attend spontaneously ie: between games at a baseball or basketball tournament or on my home from work. In 2016 I organized a wellness month at the resort where I served as a Human Resources Director. I led an outdoor “stretching” routine for my colleagues. The routine included several yoga asanas I had learned throughout the years. My boss received multiple emails from attendees who felt the benefits of my class. They reported felling invigorated, focused, energized, and great. When he shared the feedback, the seed of “Hatha with Atha” was officially planted. At the urging of fellow yogini and Pilates guru, Laura Cison I enrolled at Pulsation studio to receive formal Anusara Yoga certification training. The training was amazing. I am honored to be joining the “kula” that Jim and Kathy Simonik have created and look forward to contributions my classes will be able to make to the community. My style is a flow sequence highlighting the 3 A’s action, attitude, and alignment. I chuckle when people tell me that they are too “hyper” for yoga or too stiff or worried about the way they will look. That’s how I sounded in 1994, now I’m limber, calm and look like a yogini. It’s a new chapter to a great story.
