As a marketing executive, Dana Damara's calendar was packed, but her life felt oddly empty. After quitting her job and backpacking the world, she found her true passion by practicing yoga. Now sharing her knowledge with others, Damara helms Zen Flow Yoga, a studio that cultivates physical and spiritual wellness through ancient poses and meditation. Certified instructors lead each class, weaving movements and deep breaths into Vinyasa-style sequences that promote strength, focus, and relaxation. In addition to demonstrating poses, teachers guide students of all levels toward correct alignment to help them build balance, litheness, and human pyramids tall enough to sew patches on ozone holes. Yoga retreats awaken spirits in scenic locales such as Costa Rica, and online classes impart calming movements ideal for practicing in your living room or on top of the fridge for an added challenge.
