Dina Ivas

7 Reviews

A former competitive gymnast, from a young age Dina had a natural affinity for challenging her body, and the rewards of disciplined training. In an effort to share her love of movement, she earned her certification in Group Exercise in 2002 through the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America, and moved to NYC to begin her teaching career. The pressures of city life left her feeling totally unbalanced, and it was then that she discovered yoga. “Yoga didn’t come easily to me," Dina shares, "I was frustrated that I couldn’t get into certain poses, and I always forgot to breathe. With continued practice, I began to realize that it’s not about how long you can hold crow pose, but about letting go of what you think you can and can’t do, and taking the focus inward where your true power lies.” Inspired by how yoga changed her own mindset, in 2010 Dina completed the 200-hour teacher training program at Sonic Yoga, becoming a Registered Vinyasa Yoga Teacher. Dina classes challenge the body and the mind, yet are not intimidating, and accessible to all levels. She encourages students to explore on the mat, and keeps the mood lighthearted with great playlists and creative sequencing. Her teaching philosophy is embodied in three simple words: "Breathe, Play, Grow."
