Dina experienced the beauty and power of yoga at the age of 16 in South Africa. Years later, after moving to San Diego, she welcomed yoga back into her life. She channeled her love of children with the passion of yoga in creating “Yoga for Kids” enrichment programs at local pre-schools. After 6 years of working with children, Dina now enjoys the creativity and magic of working with teens and adults.
For the last 15 years Dina has immersed herself in the practice, study and teaching of Yoga. She has attended many workshops/immersions and studied with Pamela Hollander, Shana Myerson, Geri Portnoy, Shakta Kaur Khalsa, Pat Sullivan, Roger Cole, Michael Fukumura, Seane Corn, Desiree Rumbaugh, Andrew Rivin and Natasha Rizopolous as well as receiving her 200 hour Teaching Certification. Her most recent workshops were with Bryan Kent and Chris Chavez in 2012, 100 hours of intensive training with Lauren Duke and Josh Vincent in 2013, and mentoring with Rae Kline in Yoga Therapy in 2014 and 2015.
Dina’s classes blend traditional yoga styles including Anusara, Ashtanga, Hatha, Restorative and emphasis on varied forms of meditation. Her teaching approach encourages her students to focus on correct alignment and injury prevention. She invites her students to experience rhythmic breathing, balanced alignment, increased flexibility and strength. The end result encourages them to be more focused in mind and body and to experience joy and authentic peace in everyday living.
