Dina Hondrogen has been teaching yoga since 1997 in the San Francisco Bay Area. She holds a certificate from the Iyengar Yoga Institute in San Francisco.
She was drawn to yoga after the pain from a chronic neck problem and then injury became unbearable and she had to stop working and dancing. The use of props and in-depth instruction of Iyengar Yoga brought her relief and gave her the tools she needed to heal herself. She became an enthusiastic practitioner, then attended the Iyengar Yoga Institute for two years. Soon after this, she studied other types of Yoga, Ayurveda, Pilates, and various forms of movement and meditation which she has integrated into her teaching.
Dina continues to be open to new tools and techniques, melding the best into her practice. She places emphasis not only on the body but also works with the mind and emotions which she feels are central aspects of yoga. She is the mother of two and lives with her family in Alameda.
