Facilitator: Dana Brechtel
Dana had her first experience with yoga during a very stressful and emotionally difficult season of life. That first day on the mat felt like a way to exhale and find some breathing room and space to heal. From that first experience, yoga has been a gift in helping to create a sense of support in her life mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The word yoga means “union” or “to yoke together” and in this way, Dana has found yoga to be a supportive way to bring so many things together in her journey of healing.
Dana has received over 800 hours of training including basic yoga teacher training, Faith-Centered yoga, and Healing Emphasis Yoga training which includes the modalities of Yin, Yoga Nidra, Restorative yoga, Chair yoga, and Core Stress Release. Outside of this formal training, Dana’s biggest teachers in life have been her husband and children and the time they share together day by day growing in love and connection.
