About Me


Who I am:

Hi! My name is Dana and I am a school teacher, yoga teacher, and nature enthusiast.  

I first began teaching yoga in my classroom with my little yogi students. Yoga is a gift, and after discovering how beautiful it is to be able to share that gift with others, I decided to register for a yoga teacher training program. I am grateful for the ability to help guide others on the journey to discovering their true inner selves through uniting mind, body, and breath. Alongside my love for yoga is my love for nature. I adore spending time completely immersed in the natural world and receiving all the benefits it has to offer. I believe in the interconnectivity between our physical and spiritual selves and the natural world around us. I love helping others discover their relationship with nature as I have discovered mine.

Kids Nature Walks

During our nature walks, I will guide your little ones through an exploration of the natural world around us. We will connect positively with nature using all our senses!

Happy Children

Kids Nature Morning

During our nature mornings, we will start with a sharing circle where we'll tap into each one of our senses and discuss what we're noticing all around us. We will then do age-appropriate and nature-focused activities that will be followed by a nature-themed yoga class! We'll conclude our beautiful morning with a sharing circle where we express how we feel, what we've found, and what we like the most about nature!

Conscious Nature Camp

This 6 week summer program will run from July 6th - August 13th. It is a program that teaches children the importance of movement, mindfulness, community, and connection to nature. It will run from 9:00am until 2:00pm Monday through Friday for explorers ages 6-10. The camp will be outdoors daily, rain or shine! We will meet at a different park every week, and for “nature center week” we will meet at a different nature center each day. This program will consist of:

  • Art - we will be using nature as our main medium! 

  • Community building - we will do community services such as picking up litter,  gardening, raising money for a cause, and so much more. 

  • Movement - we will be doing a whole lot of moving together! We will have daily morning yoga, trails to explore, and games to play! 

  • Exploring - we will not only be exploring the wonders of nature but we will also be exploring the wonders of our minds, bodies, and emotions! 

Forest Grass

Shinrin-Yoku / Forest Bath

Shinrin-Yoku or Forest Bathing is a form of nature therapy. When we forest bathe, we take a slow-paced mindful walk with the intention to reconnect with the natural world. Throughout the walk, I will invite you to engage your senses by guiding you through unique activities. After each activity, we come together in a circle to share our nature connection experiences, which in turn strengthens the connectivity and awareness of the group. 

Shinrin-Yoku has been studied and confirmed to have numerous physical and mental benefits including:

  • reduced stress

  • lower cortisol levels

  • reduced blood pressure

  • increased production of disease-fighting Natural Killer (NK) cells

  • increased energy

  • improved sleep and mood
