About Dana

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!” –Audrey Hepburn

“I AM’ are two of the most powerful words, for what you put after them shapes your reality.” – Anonymous

Dana Kraft’s yoga experience is about limitless possibilities on and off the mat. She fills the room with her sense of fun and radiance and empowers her students through her philosophy- the challenges we face in our yoga practice parallels the obstacles we face in our daily lives; breathe through them on the mat, and we can overcome them off the mat.

Dana’s approach to teaching stems from her belief that yoga is accessible to everyone. Her experience as a former high school teacher enables her to effectively work with students by differentiating between learning styles and using the one that is most applicable for that individual student. Dana is known for her hands on approach and sheer enthusiasm and joy for the practice. Her personal style of teaching yoga draws attention to breath, alignment, and incorporates intelligent sequencing. She creates a safe space for her students where they can focus on “being a better me” by cultivating courage and compassion from within, leading to clarity. Her students work to balance that fine line between ease and effort creating the endurance and fortitude they need to overcome the obstacles on and off the mat and enjoy a fulfilling life.

Dana has worked with high profile private clientele on both the east and west coast, ranging from major league athletes, musicians, Broadway talent, top models, and film and television actors. She is the official yoga instructor to the 2015 NBA champions, the Golden State Warriors and has worked with the UCLA men’s golf team and women’s basketball team. She provides Vinyasa, Restorative, meditation, and The Roll Model® Method to players such as Festus Ezeli, Andre Iguodala, Harrison Barnes, Shawn Livingston, and Splash Brothers: Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. She currently works with Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers.

Dana teaches Vinyasa, Power Vinyasa, and Pre-natal and Post-natal classes in Los Angeles at Agni Yoga, Yogaworks, Crunch, and Hot8 Yoga.

Dana is a Yoga Alliance 200HR RYT and yoga certified by Pure Yoga in New York. A Detroit native, she graduated from the University of Michigan (BFA in Musical Theatre) and then moved to New York City to earn a Masters in Educational Theatre and English Education from New York University.

Dana maintains a thriving public class and private practice, traveling between Southern and Northern California and is available for workshops, private and corporate instruction in both regions.

"Dana is absolutely amazing!! Her classes are in a calm soft spoken manner. She is very patient, but thorough and clear in her instructions. I am really amazed by Dana's passion, which truly inspires me to not only continue with her teaching in yoga, but also just focus on being a better me through the practice of yoga." -Esther K.
