About Dina

A little bit about me...

DinaAs an experienced senior teacher of many years, I have held regular classes and workshops at the major studios around London including Triyoga and the Life Centre. I am a mentor for trainee and new teachers and a member of faculty on various trainings. I also work for the charity Ourmala, teaching yoga to refugees and asylum seekers.

Gradually moving away from an accidental career in music journalism and pr and a lifestyle that was fun, but slowly killing me, I completed a dynamic yoga teacher training in Ibiza in 2000, more as an exercise in damage limitation than as a pre-meditated career move. I never made the decision to start teaching, it just seemed that wherever I went, someone wanted to learn. Many years, at least 1000 training hours and 1,000s of teaching hours later, I find I am still learning, sharing and enjoying yoga in all its forms.

My teaching reflects the diversity of styles and teachers that have influenced me, from the Yang yogas of Ashtanga and Vinyasa flow through to the more Yin styles of Restorative and Hatha Yoga.

I like to teach with a no-nonsense clarity and simplicity that is grounded, inclusive, refreshing and light-hearted. I try to keep it real.

I find teaching one of the greatest arenas for my learning, whether working with dancers at the Royal Opera House, stressed executives at their workplace, the random mix of Londoners that attend classes at my studio, or festival goers that find me plying my trade in a field surrounded by revellers and heavy beats. 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.
