Dana Damara is one of the Bay Area's premier yoga instructors and leading advocate for women and young girl empowerment.  She is a teacher of teachers, an author, a Shaman, a community leader, an empowerment coach, speaker, and pioneer in revolutionizing education.

When she’s not leading one of her fiery, Bohemian Flow classes  she may be facilitating a retreat, hosting a women’s Moon Circle in her own home, on the phone empowering her clients, creating an inseparable tribe with her Embody Truth Teacher Training program, or simply hanging out with her daughters and their friends at the local middle and/or high school.  

She is an author, a retreat leader, and an activist for women of all ages. Her Embody Truth Yoga Teacher Training goes beyond the typical yoga poses and delves deep into the core of what makes each of us want to share the gift of yoga. Dana is helping to empower girls and women through her organization Girls Elevate and now revolutionizing education through Youth Elevate  bringing social/emotional learning and yoga/mindfulness into the middle and high schools. 

Her vision is to see the world healed through movement, connection and self-love. She believes that the body has many depths… the subtle and physical body must be in alignment in order to live your true purpose. She embodies a balance of strength and grace, encouraging others to find that sweet spot within themselves.

She creates a flow that strengthens the body, opens the heart and quiets the mind. Her inspiration to dive deeper into the practice came when she began studying the subtle body. This knowledge not only shifted her yoga teaching but also changed her own life: igniting her purpose to educate others about the power of yoga and how to take their practice to a more potent level.

“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 is based out of San Francisco, California but travels with her daughters all over the world to bring the healing power of yoga, spirituality and authentic connection to anyone who will have her. 

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…
