Dana is a working artist (danaparisi.com) and loves to travel. She has taught yoga classes as far away as Hong Kong, China. After years of occasional yoga practice, Dana practiced for seven consecutive days during a period of high stress. She experienced such immense physiological and mental benefits by the end of that week that she fell for yoga hard. She continued to practice regularly and soon wanted to delve deeper. Following a year of teacher training, she completed her 200 hour Foundational Teacher Training 2015 at Moksha Yoga Center, and has been teaching ever since. She is proud to have a teaching style influenced by all of her amazing teachers. She looks forward to the evolution of her teaching style through her continued study of yoga.
Dana teaches Vinyasa-flowing movements linked with the rhythm of the breath while also stimulating the body with challenging holds. She also teaches Restorative, in which passive prop-supported poses are held for several minutes to enable the body to slowly open in a very meditative practice. Proper body alignment in both classes is taught with cues, and encouraged with props and adjustments. The yogic benefits of awareness are something Dana deeply encourages in her classes. Awareness of body and mind can lead to magical things, including a body that feels and looks healthier, and a sense of balance and clarity. This clarity enables us to see our true nature so that we can live the life that, deep down, we know we want to live.
