Dana Robinson (E-RYT, RCYT, RPYT)
Dana loves working with pregnant mamas to help them realize the full strength and wonder of their own beautiful bodies. She also has over five hundred hours of specialized training in children’s yoga and 10 years experience with teaching yoga to families and children from birth through high school.
Dana combines her experience in yoga, children’s yoga therapy, music, developmental movement, early childhood education, and as a mom to three young children, to create classes and workshops that are unique to the students’ interests and strengths. Dana strives to help each child and mother build confidence and body awareness while discovering their own unique gifts. She believes that we can help families tackle any troubles and trials that life may bring, by giving them tools that teach us to depend on our own body’s and mind’s strength.
When not teaching yoga in the studio or schools, Dana and her family of 5 enjoy traveling the world, bringing the joy and peace of yoga to children in impoverished areas around the globe. Dana and her husband Ron are ambassadors with Africa Yoga Project, a non-profit organization in Africa bringing yoga, jobs, and hope to young adults in the informal settlements of Africa.
Whitney Farrar (RYT, CPYT)
Whitney completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2014, to be certified in 2015. In the spring of 2015 Whitney found out her and her fiancé were expecting their first baby, and she began attending prenatal yoga classes with Dana at Sweet Feet Yoga. Throughout her pregnancy, she felt more and more passionate about prenatal care. When her daughter, Hazel, arrived in December, she knew she wanted to continue to be a part of the growing birthing community.
With the support of her fiancé and with the adorable baby Hazel in tow, she completed her prenatal teacher training in May of 2016 with Sweet Feet Yoga. Whitney is excited for this next step in her journey empowering women and guiding them through this exciting time of pregnancy and birth.
Kelly Pokharel (RYT, CCYT, CPYT)
Kelly began attending yoga classes in 2003 out of curiosity. That curiosity quickly grew into a passion for yoga. Drawn in by the sense of calm and balance she felt after each class, Kelly found the strong desire to share the experience of yoga with others.
Kelly completed her 200-hour teacher training with the Himalayan Institute in 2009 (CYT) and has been teaching yoga ever since. She is also trained in prenatal yoga through the the Global Yoga Center (2009) and in children’s yoga through Sweet Feet Yoga (2016).
Always drawn to children, Kelly began teaching yoga to preschool aged children at a local daycare center in 2012 and loves the energy, curiosity and honesty children bring to yoga. She loves watching their self-confidence and imagination grow through their yoga practice.
