I am excited about what we can do together! My favorite part of what I do is the "light bulb" moments when a student feels something or realizes something new about themselves.
I embrace the dual responsibility of introducing each student to a set of tools and tips for viewing themselves more deeply and getting out of their way so they can teach themselves! Both yoga and reiki are great tools that can be used to heal as deeply into the mind, body and soul as the client is willing to explore.
I began teaching yoga at the Neenah/Menasha YMCA in 2005. My first experience was teaching Prenatal and Power Yoga. In 2011, I started studying a more comprehensive tradition of yoga, Viniyoga, in the lineage of T. Krishnamacharya. During that experience, I also found reiki. I studied the art of reiki in 2015 and was attuned at the Master Level in 2016. I am an RYT 500-hour certified Viniyoga Teacher through the American Viniyoga Institute (AVI) and a Master Level Reiki Practictioner.
I began my business, Well-Being Yoga, in the summer of 2014. I am located at 124 West Wisconsin Avenue, Unit 240D Neenah, WI.
I work individually with clients based on an intention set for our time together. Working individually permits me to create a yoga sequence solely designed for the individual or delve deeply into their specific intention during an intuitive healing reiki session.
My students have had a wide range of goals including but not limited to improving quality of life after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, Multiple Sclorosis, having a stroke and or cancer, reducing anxiety or depression, healing from sacral, back or hip issues, gaining improved quality of life while in a wheel chair, and wanting assistance moving through a difficult portion of their life's journey.
At the core of my teaching philosophy is the goal to make sure each of my students has an experience centered solely around their needs and their mind and body's capabilities.
"Science has shown the importance of mindfulness to reduce stress, and Dana showed me the techniques to make this practice possible.
I am thrilled that I found her and had the opportunity to learn from her.
I can truthfully say she has touched every aspect of my life by awakening me to the power and benefits of an individual’s own body.
I will continue with this practice for the rest of my life."
