Welcome, my name is Dayna,

I believe we are meant to realize our fullest potential. To SHINE our light on this Earth.

Every single breath is a reminder to begin again.
Love and appreciate how Dayna meets everyone at their level. Love the mindfulness. TLC student
I have PTSD and Dayna's classes and training help me to focus on positive thoughts and feelings. I use them often. So grateful. Dayna is an excellent teacher.
Dayna is very in tune to the people in her class. She stretches us physically and mentally while letting each of us explore our own boundaries by giving us alternative poses. TLC student
About Dayna: The Short Story
Yoga began to call for my attention when I was a child. I had no idea as a young swimmer, moving rhythmically through water, connected to my breath, fully present to the moment; awake, that I was indeed experiencing the flow.
My path has taken me in many directions since those early days in the water, yet Yoga has always called me in offering an anchor, a foundation during tough times.
Through the power of breath to root me in the present, through the empowerment of the body to teach me strength, vulnerability, humility, to the divine spirit to foster faith and honor mystery...through the very simple truth that all is One; connected. Yoga is my teacher.
I am a devoted yogini and an educator--- endlessly inspired by Nature's rhythms, cycles and teachings. I am curious about myself, others, the world we share and how we honor one another. I teach from a perspective of co-creation whereby the goal of Yoga; self-understanding, self-realization, enlightenment is held in balance with the practical application of real life skills. My intention is one of stewardship, support, guidance, and compassion.
