Dina is a 200hr RYT based in Arlington, VA. Her desire to expand and explore her yoga practice was realized several years after first being introduced to yoga; practicing pre- and post-pregnancy, and then incorporating it into her fitness and running routines. After years of ‘on and off’ practice, but never fully appreciating all aspects and benefits of yoga – physically, emotionally, and spiritually – she started attending more classes. As she did, she felt her body awakening to asana, her mind becoming calmer, and her breath controlling what she was experiencing. That is when yoga became an integral part of her life and inspired her to learn more.
Dina currently teaches vinyasa, alignment-based style yoga to practitioners at a variety of locations including CrossFit Falls Church (VA), the US Department of Energy’s FOHO Fitness Center, and the Mind Your Body Oasis studio. She also offers private instruction.
Dina completed the mentorship program and taught community classes at Blue Nectar Yoga studio (Falls Church, VA).
