Teaching yoga is not about teaching yoga at all. It’s about sharing your passion, your uniqueness, your core values, your perspective on what’s important, and then learning how to use your voice to share it.
— Dana Damara
Embody Truth training is unique because of the heart and soul that creator Dana Damara has woven into the very fabric of its essence. This program matches the other 200 hour hour trainings Ive taken in its breadth and depth, coverage of all the major necessary components. However, this training goes above and beyond in its call to action, inviting participants to show up fully and arrive to a more than ever awakened state of being. The transformation Ive witnessed in the graduates of this program is magnificent. If you are interested in learning yoga history, philosophy, anatomy, sanskrit, sequencing, and more, this program is for you. If you are interested in delving deep within yourself to remove obstacles and access an unrestricted flow of pure energy that helps you transform towards your highest good and most resonant alignment, than this training is for you!

I ask every trainee, ‘What is important to you?  Why do you want to do this?  What difference is it going to make in your life?’  Most people don’t know when they begin this spiritual journey but they find out pretty quickly, that’s for sure.” - Dana Damara

“A yoga teacher is someone who links posture together for the sake of getting a good workout.  A yogi(ni) sharing the love of yoga, is a person who embodies truth in action; who shares their passion and love for this practice with their whole heart every time they step on the mat; who uses the teaching platform not to be perfect or ‘better then’, but to be authentic to their imperfections.  A yogi(ni) uses this life, this mat, this room, to share their passion with their world in order to heal the planet.” Dana Damara


This training is more than just teaching methodology, philosophy, asana and technique: it’s a switch in your lifestyle.  You needn’t have any experience to enroll in this training … just a willingness to open up your life to more truth, freedom and love.
