Meet the program creator.
Dana Diament is a Yoga Medicine Therapeutic Specialist, the founder of Lennox Yoga and an international yoga educator. She has deep expertise in anatomy and physiology, and aims to support and inspire students to use yoga as medicine by incorporating both eastern and western perspectives in her teaching.
Working with the postnatal population is a particular passion of Dana’s, and her approach is rooted in both science as well as her personal journeys with pregnancy and postpartum healing. Dana’s extensive therapeutic experience, along with her compassionate and soothing style of teaching, have earned her a reputation as a thoughtful and knowledgeable instructor. In addition to her pre- and postnatal work, Dana’s specialities include back and hip pain, recovery and addiction, and anxiety and depression.
Dana has taught on teacher training programs in Hawaii, Mexico, Thailand, Napa, San Francisco, and San Diego for Yoga Medicine, and in Byron Bay for Creature Yoga. She teaches online on Yoga Medicine Online, and is a contributor to Well Being’s Yoga Experience, Yoga Journal, Yoga Digest and Wild magazine.
Dana initially came to yoga as a teenager and found that a regular practice helped her find clarity, gain confidence, and connect to a peaceful place within. Her love for functional anatomy came later on, through healing injuries and her mentorship with Tiffany Cruikshank. Combining the emotional benefits of yoga with the anatomical knowledge to support strength and healing allows her to create classes and programs with a three dimensional focus on health and wellness.
Dana has a bachelor’s degree in Economics from Cornell University and an associate’s degree in Graphic Design from Parson’s University in New York. Born in Israel and raised in New Jersey, she has found her true home in Lennox Head, Australia.
