Dana Kraft’s yoga experience is about limitless possibilities on and off the mat. She fills the room with her sense of fun and radiance and empowers her students through her philosophy- the challenges we face in our yoga practice parallel the obstacles we face in our daily lives; breathe through them on the mat, and we can overcome them off the mat.
Dana’s approach to teaching stems from her belief that yoga is accessible to everyone. Her experience as a former high school teacher enables her to effectively work with students by differentiating between learning styles and using the most applicable one for that individual. Dana is known for her hands on approach & sheer enthusiasm for the practice. Her personal style of teaching yoga draws attention to breath, alignment, and incorporates intelligent sequencing. She creates a safe space for her students where they can focus on “being a better me” by cultivating courage and compassion from within, leading to clarity. Dana has worked with high profile private clientele on both the east and west coast, ranging from major league athletes, musicians, Broadway talent, top models, and film and television actors. She is the official yoga instructor to the 2015 NBA champions the Golden State Warriors and has worked with the UCLA men’s golf team & women’s basketball team. She provides Vinyasa, Restorative, meditation, and The Roll Model® Method to players such as Festus Ezeli, Andre Iguodala, Harrison Barnes, Shawn Livingston, and Splash Brothers: Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.
Work hard and enjoy it! Dana’s sessions are a perfect balance between restorative and challenging. Classes are personalized and well planned. On the practical side Dana is a true professional. She is upfront, reliable and on time.
Dana is an insightful, clear, and attentive teacher. She made me feel comfortable, and game me the confidence to get back on my mat after having been away from yoga for so long. She is very precise about alignment, and makes sure you are always breathing correctly! I recommend her to anyone whether you are a beginner or more advanced student.
Dana is absolutely amazing! Her classes are in a calm soft spoken manner. She is very patient but thorough and clear in her instructions. I am really amazed by Dana’s passion which truly inspires me to not only continue with her teaching in yoga, but also just focus on being a better me through the practice of yoga.
Dana is a natural born instructor. She includes various challenges in class while still keeping it a comfortable and safe place for students of every level. I like her hands-in approach and her enthusiasm for the practice.
A Fun Way to Practice Yoga
I took one of Dana’s classes a few months ago and have been hooked ever since…she is always open to correcting your posture when you are in poses, which is hard to find in classes sometimes…Her energy alone is amazing, and I can’t imagine practicing yoga without her now!”
