Instructors at Yoga Body Elements

Dana Podell,

Dana was first introduced to yoga as a collegiate Dance Major, leading her towards a 200-hr Yoga Alliance certification course. With time, she found yoga to be more than a physical practice but rather a way of life that allows for introspection, self-study, and a full connection with the present moment. Inspired by the yogic lifestyle, she’s interested in ways yoga can guide day to day decisions to ensure mental stamina and self-confidence: especially in her new pursuit as a Physical Therapy graduate student. Her students are the guiding light of her class, inspiring her methodology and personal practice. A lover of travel, yoga by the beach, and all vegetarian food; she is ready for her Chicago journey and eager to meet inspirational yogis!

 

Eddie Miller,

My name is Eddie Miller and I’m a actor, mover, and singer from Orlando, FL with my 200 hour RYT. Yoga has flowed in and out my life for the past ten years and continuing its practice has allowed me to strengthen myself and the ways I interact with the world. I focus on bodily alignment and a slow, strengthening flow. My classes combine extended posture holds with a goal of broadening awareness within the mind and body.
Come breathe and flow with me I would love to meet you!

Jeff Jones,
Jeff Jones’ work at Reclaim Your Joy (reclaimyourjoy.guru) is guided by his own journey. He went overnight from being a senior corporate executive to a homeless alcoholic, then found recovery, transformation, purpose and joy. Now Jeff helps people at any stage of their lives find gratitude in being their authentic selves. He is an abundance trainer, certified as an alcohol and other drug abuse counselor, clinical hypnotherapist and trans-personal life coach. His workshops and individual coaching blend the joyfulness teachings of Christianity, Buddhism and other religions with the science of what makes us feel, think and act the way we do. The dark moments of Jeff’s life have given him lessons he can share with others who are searching for purpose, want to limit their negative thinking or just want to live healthier lives.
