Dana Falsetti is an international yoga teacher, writer, and advocate for living an authentic life that begins with self-love and leads to your beautiful, badass self. She has been recognized by millions across social media for her message: anybody can practice yoga and everybody has a right to be their true self no matter what body they are in. 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 largely from focusing on weight loss and body shaming her whole life. She spent a year dieting and exercising which led to significant weight loss, only to realize that being smaller didn't make her happier because while her body changed, she didn't. Suffering from a binge eating disorder, she struggled with body image and self worth her whole life until she realized she could actually accept and love 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 is a 2017 Shorty Award winner (recognizing excellence in social media) in the Health and Wellness category, and was recently named on OOOM Magazine’s list of 100 Most Inspiring.
