About Dina

A little bit about me...

DinaGradually moving away from an accidental career in music PR and a hedonistic lifestyle that was rapidly losing its lustre, I completed a Dynamic Yoga teacher training in Ibiza in 2000. It was an exercise in damage limitation rather than a premeditated career move. I didn’t choose teaching, it seemed to choose me, over and over again. And now, hurtling unceremoniously (but, thankfully, a little more graciously) towards my autumn years, I still feel incredibly blessed to be sharing this work.

Yoga and mindfulness have enhanced my life in so many beneficial ways, it would be churlish not to share. But don’t expect incense and chanting: my style is more pragmatic, grounded in years of practice and personal experience.

As a Senior Teacher my offerings have evolved along with my years of experience to include Yin and Restorative Yoga, Qi Gong, Mindfulness and Yoga Nidra. I have held regular classes and workshops at the major studios around London including Triyoga and the Life Centre, am a mentor for trainee and new teachers,  a member of faculty on several trainings and also work for the charity Ourmala, teaching yoga to refugees and asylum seekers.

Whether working with dancers at the Royal Opera House, stressed executives at their workplace, the random mix of Londoners that attend my classes or festival goers that find me plying my trade in a field surrounded by revellers and heavy beats, I am always learning. I am committed to continuing my training with some of the leading teachers worldwide, especially when it gives me an excuse to indulge my wanderlust.
