Yoga, Pilates, Dance
A dancer from childhood and owner of her own studio and Charisma nonprofit for the arts at only eighteen years old, Daina sees her foundation in movement as fundamental to her understanding of the human potential. Still, it was her introduction to yoga in 2010 that she credits with “lighting the flame in her heart” to help others. Through yoga, with its parallels to dance, she began to understand the healing capacity of the human body.
She sought out experiences to expand her understanding of the healing arts, earning a BA in Holistic Ministries and certifying as a 200 hour registered yoga teacher at Grace Yoga in Richmond, Virginia. She also studied as a protégé of Mary Bouman with Balanced Energies. Drawing on these experiences and her background as a dancer, Daina developed Transcendance, a unique fusion of energy balancing, global dance, and Yoga.
A certified Stott Pilates instructor, TRX trainer, Acroyoga teacher, and Thai massage therapist, Daina is also the Artistic Director of Charism Dance Company. In her work with clients and in her own life, she continues to seek out the best practices to achieve physical and emotional health.
