Working with Mary Dana helped me to reach the next stage of my yoga career. She encouraged me and kept me accountable to the goals we set together right at the beginning of our mentorship. She shared her knowledge about the practice but also about the business of yoga generously, from an honest experiential place, sparking my curiosity for geometrical shapes and the role that the imagination can play in asana practice and teaching.
She has a beautiful syncretic, considered, meticulous and yet playful mentorship style; she subtly challenged the areas where I was scared to blossom; and offered warm, practical support through my first steps in sequence creation, brand development and social media presence. She helped me to capture the story of my journey into yoga, to access my voice in the classroom and to become more confident about the style of yoga I want to offer to world. I am so grateful!. Thank you Mary Dana!

I’ve always found Mary Dana’s classes to be insightful and packed with incredible information. Her teaching style is intelligent, fun, and most of all, purposeful. I was very lucky to have studied with her in my advanced yoga trainings, and then through her mentorship program. Our work together allowed me to ‘go to the areas in my body and mind that I don’t visit often,’ thus transforming both my personal practice and the way I teach. She asks us to maintain a healthy curiosity towards this work, so that we can thrive in our yoga practice forever. This really is the longevity practice and Mary Dana truly is the teacher’s teacher.

I have had the honor and privilege to be trained by Mary Dana for my 200-hour yoga teacher training as well as private lessons, workshops and a 50-hour training. Through our asana and alignment-specific work, she has changed my own personal practice and the way I teach my students. A beautiful combination of humor, authenticity, and wisdom, Mary Dana is THE teacher’s teacher. I feel lucky and grateful to consider her a teacher, mentor, and friend.

I have had the unique privilege of starting my 200hr yoga training journey with Mary Dana. And then continued to seek her guidance/training as I dove further into my advanced teacher training. Her approach to yoga and the body is based on hard information of how we move and operate as human beings. She has a way of teaching from her truth, while leaving space for you to find your own creativity and way into your teaching and practice. Her sense of humor and down to earth style, has shaped me into the teacher I am today, and will continue to grow into. Her 50HR Hands On training, allowed me to transform the way that I view the physical forms of my students, and how to handle the body with care and encouragement. I highly recommend Marydana as a teacher, trainer, and overall wonderful human being!
