Hello, I’m Dina.

 

Four years ago (by chance), I became an expat after relocating from New York City and landed in Melbourne, Australia where I have continued to devote my time to serving others through the facilitation of yoga, energetic practices, and transformational coaching sessions.

I like to approach life with a "don't know" mind and am passionate about raising the consciousness of the planet. I truly believe we have the capacity to choose who we are at any given moment and can start a new hobby, job, or career at any moment in time.  Hence, I've dabbled in quite a few different studies, techniques, and modalities.  For me, the link that connects them all is my fascination with the Oneness of being human and our ability to transform.

People often ask me where I'm from.  The truth is, home is wherever I am.  I was born in Baku, Azerbaijan, and immigrated to the United States with my family to seek refuge from the ongoing civil unrest in the former Soviet Union.  At three years old, I discovered my love for movement.  The result of this discovery was the ferocious pursuit of all things artistic, spatial, and kinesthetic. I began choreographing at eleven years old, teaching at fourteen, and have been performing, teaching, and creating ever since. 

I believe one must first be a good student in order to be a teacher. Thus, I can confidently say I have practiced, studied, or intensively trained in everything I offer with some of the best teachers in the world. All of my studies have radically influenced me, to the point where now the intention for my work is to provide a safe, loving, and inquisitive container of integrity for profound expansion to occur for my clients.

If what I offer or anything you see on this site resonates with your spirit, please reach out. I love meeting new friends and fellow travelers ♡
