Corporate Yoga Client
"Dana is a powerful yoga instructor in all facets of her wonderful practice. She connects to each person on every level helps each person feel as if they are experiencing a personal class - from a beginner to an expert - in inversion. This is hard to do. This is powerful. Thanks Dana!"

Laura Stone

Class Yoga Client
"I just wanted to drop a quick note to tell you how much I enjoyed your classes. I'm a rookie and I know my opinion and knowledge isn't much but just know that you are an awesome teacher. I felt like I came away from each class ready to start my day with a positive attitude."

AJ Ellington

Private Yoga Client
"Dana is a wonderful yoga instructor. I had the privilege of taking her Christian yoga class where I was introduced to the world of yoga for the very first time. I love the way she infuses the art of yoga with scriptural foundations that allow you to enjoy a calming workout while being spiritually fed!"


Dana is a 200-hour Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance.  After being a practitioner for over 10 years, Dana discovered Baptiste Yoga, a style of vigorous asana, self-inquiry, and meditation, and it is also the Power Vinyasa yoga style in which she received her formal teacher training.  Through the Baptiste Institute, Dana has trained directly under founder Baron Baptiste and completed over 150 additional hours in the Art of Assisting.

It was through teaching Power Yoga she began to add her love of Christ in yoga classes.  As a daughter of a pastor, Dana had always believed that in “everything she did, it would be done as unto the Lord” (Colossians 3:23)…and so is the case with yoga!  Her classes are themed to biblical lessons, Christian music, prayer, and spiritual introspection.  Additionally, Dana enjoys anything upside-down and fun arm balances as well.   Currently, she teaches corporate and private clients in the all over the world.  She is married to former NBA Player Chris Taft, and together they have 3 children; Kayla, David and Ethan.

When not teaching yoga, Dana is an active entrepreneur and motivational speaker helping families achieve financial fitness through her Taft Plan financial firm.  It is her desire that individuals are healthy in every aspect of their life.  She also sits on the board of her husband's full time ministry bringing Christ and and Basketball to all nations.

Dana believes that in yoga, there is no “perfect” – just practice!  Her personal mission statement is: “I am here to bring out the God-flavors of this earth; shine to bring out the God-colors in the world; be open and generous with my life, prompting others to open up with God, this generous Father in Heaven.” – Matthew 5:13-16 (MSG)
