Dan took his first Bikram Yoga class in 2006 at BYNYC’s original West 72nd street location, and has been an addicted yogi ever since. He has been fortunate to study in two schools of yoga, both at the Sivananda Ashram in the Bahamas in December of 2010, and with Bikram in Los Angeles, Fall 2012. He feels that, for fast-paced city living, the heated Bikram Yoga sequence works to help cleanse, calm, detoxify and recenter both body and mind. A particular facet of this class that appeals to Dan is the self-immersion and focus required to successfully complete the sequence, as well as an emphasis on the breath. Outside of his yoga practice and teaching, Dan a writer-reporter, copyeditor and playwright.
