Meet Dana Podell DPT, E-RYT
Doctor of Physical Therapy & Registered Yoga Teacher
Welcome :) If you landed here then you are in the right place.
The beginning: My yoga practice began as a complement to studying Dance in college at Ohio State University. In the beginning, I practiced yoga as a way to heal and restore personal injuries. After developing a steady practice, I decided to dive into the healing space of yoga by completing my 200-hour teacher training. Hungry to learn more about the physical body, I returned to school and received my Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) from Northwestern University. During my studies, I also completed additional course work and an intensive clinical internship in the treatment of pelvic health.
Now: After finishing school, I decided to take a risk, follow my intuition, and move to Israel. I am very excited about this transition and to offer my services in this new home! My current approach to healing the body is holistic, integrating the spiritual realm of yoga with the science of evidenced based physical therapy. I believe that there is great potential in healing the body with yoga informed movement, deep breathing practices, and manual therapy. When I am not in the clinic or teaching yoga, you can find me on the beach or cooking up yummy vegetarian food.
I am so excited to meet you and to help you start your healing journey!
What clients are saying
"I was not a yoga lover until I started taking class with Dana. Now I relish the chance to practice with her every chance I get. The specificity of her instruction and explanations for how it should feel in the body has made a massive difference in my experience. I always feels incredible after class with Dana, and she always takes the time to answer specific questions and offer suggestions after class. She really cares about her students and honoring the authenticity of yoga."
