Dina Ellington - Owner

Kriyā (in Sanskrit “Action, Deed, Effort”) is a true discipline that I have adopted into my yoga practice to help motivate and keep me focused. The idea of Kriyā helps me meet any pose on my mat at the place where I can find it and feel connected. Kriyā has allowed me to stay true to my intentions and honor my personal self. It has also helped me stay present and find “my pose”.

I completed my 200 RYT training in June 2011 with Kathy Simonik (Anusara Certified Yoga Instructor). During my training, I became truly inspired by the principles of Anusara yoga. The idea of learning to combine one’s muscular and organic energy to create a pose from the “inside out” resonated with me and has been a key lesson I offer to my students ever since.

As a yoga teacher, I am so fortunate to share what inspires me in my practice with my students. I feel truly honored to have the opportunity to work with students and help guide them to find that same connection and arrive in their poses. I have been a student at The Yoga Effect since it opened and a teacher there for 6 years. I took ownership of the studio in January 2016. Even as owner, I still consider myself a student and a teacher, but I get the great honor of overlooking this beautiful studio and working with amazing teachers every day. I also get the opportunity to meet so many of the wonderful students who have made The Yoga Effect their personal space for their practice.

I look forward to watching The Yoga Effect teachers and students grow deeper into their beautiful teachings and practices each day. I hope that the idea of Kriyā inspires all and helps them to truly connect to their intentions. I hope Kriyā helps them find “their pose” on their mat.
