Before I started Hatha Yoga with Dina I had chronic neck pain and migraines due to a pinched nerve in my neck. With her guidance and suggestions for specific poses I have been able to strengthen the muscles in my neck and can honestly say the occurrences of both have become almost nonexistent. Dina is a wonderful and insightful Yoga instructor, her compassionate nature and dedication to her profession and beliefs is unsurpassed. Dina, you are truly the most amazing yoga teacher and I thank you for your patience and guidance in this practice. Your knowledge and dedication is outstanding. I cannot begin to describe how much you have helped me physically, mentally, and spiritually.

I have been taking yoga at the MS chapter in Hamilton for about seven months with Dina our instructor. Dina is directive, patient, and helpful to each of us. She is and always has been professional, cheerful, and fun. She is caring and gives advice on what we need to be doing to help us in our journey at improving our balance, stamina, and overall health. I started doing yoga for the exercise benefits but soon discovered it was improving my mood, well being, and helping me sleep better. This is all thanks to Dina. Dina has also taught me how to tune out all other distractions which has always been a problem for me. I feel balanced and happy with my improvements thanks to Dina.

After many years of wanting to try yoga I decided to join Dina’s classes and I really enjoyed them. Her knowledge on yoga and her programs are great. My breathing, balance, coordination, and relaxation are so much better after being in her classes. Throughout our yoga sessions with Dina we felt her passion for yoga and her love and caring for her students.
