Dina Amsterdam has developed a unique InnerYoga approach to teaching yoga whether to first timers, advanced practitioners or teachers in training.  Whether the practice is strong, fluid, still, or alignment oriented, she guides students from the inside out – helping them to slow down internally, harness the power of their attention as well as their strength, open their hearts, and awaken their connection tangibly to the natural flows of energy and inner capacities that cultivate harmony in the body and mind. Dina is adept at translating esoteric teachings into simple digestible practices that help her students to access their best selves in the face of life’s inevitable inner and outer challenges, to bring those skills off the mat and into life.
