D’ana Baptiste, previous owner of Inbody Yoga Academy, Centered City Yoga, and her non-profit organization “Yogis in Service,” can rightfully be called a pioneer in this vast world of Yoga. A yogi from Oakland, CA, now residing in Mexico, D’ana’s ultimate “message” is to find one’s own way in the big “mind-body” world. D’ana has trained or influenced nearly every teacher in Utah’s Mountain West, with over 30 years experience in and influence over the yoga industry. She has built a community of dedicated yoga practitioners who love her philosophy of embracing all that life has to offer, using all the senses to do so. D’ana manages and organizes workshops and retreats across the country and in Mexico. She now teaches almost exclusively online through studio platforms, private online sessions, and live streaming on Forte.fit as a “top producer.” She has authored three books on the Yoga Sutras and the practical application of deeper yogic principles. D’ana is an IAYT accredited Yoga Therapist, as well as a master trainer of Yoga Therapists. She learns much about life from hanging out with her three boys and her granddaughter, who help her keep it real.
