Dan Steel has engaged in the practice of Yoga for more than a decade now, having learned Transcendental Meditation while attending Berklee College of Music. Shortly thereafter he discovered the asana practice. Having a background in martial arts, he was immediately drawn to the physically demanding aspects of the postures and the focus that they required. It was not long before he experienced the deeply powerful potential in Yoga for self-healing, self-discovery, and transformation, and wished to share that with other people.
Dan has completed a 200 hour vinyasa training with Ame Wren, the 200 hour Foundational Forrest Yoga and the Advanced Forrest Yoga training with Ana Forrest, a 30 hour Budokon Yoga training with Cameron Shayne, and currently studies Shadow Yoga under Richmond Dickson and Matt Pesendian. In addition to his continued yoga studies and practice, he is training in the system of Z-Health (focusing on improving movement, balance, vision, pain rehabilitation, and athletic skill through various applied neuroanatomy techniques), and practices the martial art of Oom Yung Doe.
When the practice is approached correctly, with the appropriate degree of attention, patience, and dedication, there arises the profound opportunity for growth and greater understanding of the self physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The more we come to understand ourselves, the more we can act in accordance with our true nature and move beyond our fears.
