Dana Damara is one of the Bay Area's premier yoga instructors and leading advocate for women and young girl empowerment.   She is a mystic, a mother, a teacher of teachers, and an author. She traverses between the mystical realms, and real life drama of a mother of two teenage girls. She is an activist for women of all ages:  committed to feminine embodiment, self-love, sisterhood, sacred ceremony and ritual, and creating a safe space for evolution. 

When she’s not leading one of her fiery, Moon Mystic Classes, she may be facilitating a retreat, hosting a women’s Moon Circle, empowering her clients, creating an inseparable tribe with her Embody Truth Teacher Training program, or simply hanging out with her daughters during down time from school.

She believes that the body has many depths.  What happens on the outside is simply a reflection of what is going on inside.  It’s just a matter of how awake we are to that wisdom.  Kama, Artha, and Dharma must be in alignment in order to be liberated from the lower levels of negativity that keeps us stuck. If we want liberation, we must do the work and it is all based on self-inquiry, exploration, and discovery. 

 “On the mat, my passion is proper alignment, powerful breath and effortless flow. Time on your mat is sacred space where you find more depth, authenticity and integrity in your life,” Damara says. She believes that how you show up on your mat can be directly related to how you show up off your mat. “When we begin to integrate this truth and see ourselves with compassionate awareness, we are liberated from any illusion that holds us back from moving out into the world.”

Dana Damara has much in common with Yoga.

Her passion for life was born on the mat, her life’s seed sprouting with curiosity and purpose, building a container filled with potential and a fiery desire to elevate women and girls beyond their perceived limitations.

Dana teaches yoga as a life practice, slowly peeling back the petals of the Lotus to reveal the magic and wisdom of the lineage of masters who came before, blending ancient pathways and her innate wisdom into a vital solution for woman of all ages. 

When a woman of depth and commitment steps forward to lead, her vibration needs to hum with her essence, clearly stating intention, and the promise of transformation for her tribe.

Dana offers an open heart and a Shaman’s deep roots into the natural flow of life—guided to teach, heal and empower the divine feminine in every sentient being.

Dana Damara Evolution begins with the seed of life—the spark of Spirit—body and mind awakened to the Universal flow of synchronicity, and the beautiful message of love.

Whether on the mat, in a speech, as a coach, or in one of her books, Dana carries the fire of the alchemist within her soul.

Dana’s classes provide a loving and safe place in which to practice Yoga. Her cueing, instruction and knowledge base of anatomy is spot on! She encourages us to explore new and different postures, while at the same time respects our physical limitations and emotional place…
