Dana Falsetti is an international yoga teacher, writer, and advocate for living an authentic life that begins with self-love. She has been recognized by millions across social media for her message: anybody can practice yoga and find a path to a truly fulfilling life. Her strong and patient teaching style offers clear instruction and relative alignment, allowing students to empower themselves by building body awareness. Her goal is to create a space where students feel safe to move freely and enjoy the process without expectation.
Dana came to her yoga practice during an ultimate low, a place of depression from focusing on weight loss and body shaming her whole life. She spent a year dieting and exercising which led to lost significant weight, only to realize that being smaller didn't make her happier. Suffering from a binge eating disorder, she struggled with body image and self worth her whole life until she realized she could accept herself as is. Through a strong yoga practice she learned her true strength, and that the hardest limits were the ones she created herself.
Dana contributes to Well + Good and has been featured in media outlets across the globe including Shape, Upworthy, People, The Daily Mail, OM Yoga, Mantra, and more. She has been nominated for a 2017 Shorty Award (recognizing excellence in social media) in the Health and Wellness category, and was recently named on OOOM Magazine’s list of 100 Most Inspiring.
