What Clients are Saying

Dana has a great understanding of human physics. With a quick glance and without me saying any words, she pointed to the area of the pain and helped me with the problem that several sessions of physiotherapy could not fix. She is understanding, patient, and professional.
Furthermore, the ambiance is amazing.
Dana is a rare gem. I’ve had many good teachers who can teach the material they were taught but Dana goes beyond her teachings and customizes a program for each individual client.

It’s ALWAYS the teacher who makes all the difference!!!

With my private sessions, I have actually gone beyond what I felt I could accomplish; have improved my shoulder range of motion, spinal flexion and rotation, hip tension, ankle and foot mobility just to name a few. Once I reach a goal we move on or dig deeper in a particular area or we see what more we could accomplish.

I highly recommend Dana as an instructor and enjoying her beautiful private studio.
I always love to work with Dana. She gives me so much pleasure and inspiration to be a better person.
