Dana Trixie Flynn
Recognized throughout the yoga community as a true “teacher’s teacher,” Dana brings an
ecstatic expression of movement, music, and community to her practice and her students,
as the co-founder of Laughing Lotus Yoga Centers, located in New York City and San
Francisco, and Lotus Flow Yoga.
The former stockbroker, restaurateur, and MTV personality turned a life in the limelight
into a spiritual transformation, studying with legendary yogis: Jivamukti’s Sharon
Gannon and master teacher Rodney Yee. Fiercely innovative and independent, Dana
honors and knows well the ancient traditions and codified asana systems of the yogic
practice. During her many years of study, she “wanted to explore what it meant to move
like herself.” Dana and Co-Founder Jasmine Tarkeshi channeled over six years of organic
movement experimentation into the creation of the Laughing Lotus Yoga Centers and
Lotus Flow Yoga, which is infused with a dynamic Dervish-like energy of dance, song,
and joyous revelry..
