Dana A. Smith Our October Curvy Girl of the Month! - NAMASTE
Dana A. Smith is our Curvy Girl of the Month and I’m happy to introduce her to you!
Dana in her own words
I am a self-proclaimed Yoga Diva. I'm from New York and I started practicing Yoga, after I lost a dear friend on 9/11 in New York. Yoga was the catalyst to my positive transformation and diva is an acronym that stands for Divine Inspired Vivacious And… (great things to come)! I am considered a “Jane of all holistic trades.” I specialize and train for Yoga, Reiki and intuitive counseling. Everyone can do and benefit from practicing yoga. It is for EVERYbody and the only prerequisite is the willingness to change your life for the better.
How are you living that Curvy Girl Life
I opened my studio Spiritual Essence Yoga in 2003 as an offering to the community and a way to share my love of yoga with my family and friends. In addition to yoga I love writing about my experiences and released my first book YES! Yoga Has Curves in June 2014.
This yoga thing sounds like fun, how can I get started?
You are in luck! Dana will host a Curvy Girl Chronicles LIVE yoga session via Spreecast Wednesday, October 22, 8:00pm EST. You can practice with her from your own home, all you have to do is turn on your computer and bring your own yoga mat! RSVP here.
Dana is an entrepreneur, author, and a mother of two, a 12 year old daughter and a 3 year old son. All of this and she still finds time to give back to the Curvy Community. She has a #yesYogaHasCurves movement on Instagram where she encourages women of ALL shapes and sizes to post pics in yoga poses.
