Dana Slamp, MFA, ERYT500, completed her 300 hour Yoga Therapy training with ISKY, an international IAYT member school. She received an Ayurvedic Yoga Therapist Certification from Dr. Mark Halpern in 2014 and is completing her anatomy training with Leslie Kaminoff.
Dana began teaching yoga in 2005, offering vinyasa classes known for their spirit, strength, and safety at Sonic Yoga, New York Yoga, Some Like it Hot, and David Barton Gym. She was delighted to join the senior staff at Pure when it first opened in New York, expanding her teaching to Restorative, Slow Flow, and Yin/Yang classes, as well as contributing to Pure’s renowned 200 hour Teacher Training and Professional Mentorship Program. Despite her love of classes, Dana saw the great need for one-on-one therapeutic teaching in the spirit of Krishnamacharya. She served as Managing Teacher for Pure’s second New York studio, Pure West, managing the staff of 60+ amazing teachers and assigning thousands of private therapeutic yoga lessons for members and guests.
Since then, she has taught internationally, contributed to countless teacher trainings, and presented in the U.S. at the Telluride Yoga Festival, Wanderlust in the City, and several times at the Yoga Journal Conference. Dana is a yoga therapy educator and teacher trainer at Sonic Yoga, Ora Wellness, Three Sisters Yoga, Sequencology, and Pure Yoga. Additional education includes Prenatal Teacher Training with Gurmukh. She is a Yoga Therapist member of IAYT and treats clients on an individual basis in New York City.
