From the first day Joanna stepped onto a mat in 2007, she realized she had finally come home. During a time when she was seeking healing--physical, emotional, spiritual-- Joanna found yoga to be a sacred and illuminating container for growth. Her mat became the mirror she used to relearn how to take ownership and care of her body and soul. Learning to teach through The New School of Yogic Arts remains one of the best, most fulfilling decisions she's ever made.
Joanna delights in the way yoga can be both a playground and a soft embrace, a tool to navigate spending time on this earth. When not in a studio, Joanna can be found seeking the next adventure- biking around Boston, trekking to the sea, reading, rock climbing, and traveling. In her heart she holds the warmest gratitude and love for her teachers, who continually guide her toward a path in which yoga is a living tradition both on and off the mat.
Dana started practicing yoga in 2007 at what is now Coolidge Yoga, South End. At first, she looked at yoga as another workout class but as her physical asana practice grew deeper she began to realize how much more yoga had to offer and how it balanced other aspects of her life including a fast paced career in finance and a love of long distance running.
After moving abroad in 2008 she realized that yoga provided a home away not only as a grounding practice but also as a way to join a community and her practice deepened further. In May of 2017, after a decade in finance, Dana left the industry to complete her Associates Degree in Culinary Arts and upon her return completed her 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Certification with The New School of Yogic Arts.
Dana has completed 3 marathons; Boston, London and New York, and countless other long distance road races. She continues to find new, innovative ways to combine and compliment her love of running and weightlifting with her practice of yoga asana, breathing and meditation.
