Jody & Dan Boisits
In the 90’s Dan was introduced to both bodywork and Yoga. It set his course both personally – in terms of what he seeks to pursue and allow into his life – and professionally – becoming an energy and bodyworker. He believes each of us have a great purpose for being, and the closer we each get to our personal essential purpose, the more our collective evolves.
However, there are obstacles. As a bodyworker it’s no surprise to him that pain is often a human’s greatest challenge, and it comes in many forms; emotional, physical, mental, and again it’s often interconnected. It is with this understanding that Dan approaches his clients with the goal of guiding them out of pain. From slow deep reorganizing of the body to powerfully light touch Dan uses a wide range of tools to bring awareness, change, and relief to those who are experiencing pain. Relief from pain is a strong initial step toward feeling lighter, freer, more energetic, and can lead to a path of living harmoniously in the world.
Appreciating that the quest for harmony and equanimity within is a process together with the understanding that everything is connected, it has now come time to share the insights of his journey with others who long to discover for themselves a more peaceful way of being in the world.
Together with his wife Jody, he wishes to share the harmony and equanimity that comes from mindfulness practices including, yoga asana, group chanting/singing, quiet/noble silence, being in nature, being in community, contemplation and introspection, eating with awareness, and good rest.
Truly masterful teachers Dan has studied with include Marc Manton, Bob Schrei, and Hugh Milne. Also trained in Yoga by Jimmy Barkan, but more importantly deeply influenced by Jody (his Wife), who is a Yoga Teacher Trainer with thousands of hours of comprehensive study in Alignment based yoga, Yin Yoga, Philosophy of Yoga, and much more.
Jody Domerstad is a seasoned educator in body, mind, philosophy, and healthful living. And feels strongly, as an echo of her own healing journey, that no one should suffer.
Experience with some of this life’s more serious threats including addiction, PTSD, a brain tumor, and infectious disease has necessarily deepened her understanding of how a comprehensive yoga practice – including philosophy, asana, breathing & meditation – can help to understand and overcome those challenges.
The positive and lasting effects of yoga were so life-changing for her that she has dedicated her life to sharing what she’s learned so others can benefit.
With a masterful knowledge of alignment, a keen eye for detail, and laser precision with how to deliver cues to take students to a peak asana practice, Jody’s asana students and fellow teachers alike have deemed her “the teacher of teachers.”
Since undergoing brain surgery Jody’s studies have shifted to Yin yoga with founder Paul Grilley – 200hr TT – and continuing study with Sarah Powers – Yin Level I, II & more. Additionally, multiple Restorative yoga trainings with Judith Lasater and Jillian Pransky. *Earlier studies include: 500 ERYT, and multiple 200 hour trainings in: Vinyasa, Alignment based – Hatha, & The Barkan Method.
*Tertiary Wellness Trainings include: Inner Light Method, Neurosculpting® Facilitator, SourcePoint Therapy, Reiki Master & Spiritual Response Therapy Practitioner.
*Jody’s yoga path includes a 500 ERYT, studying with best of the best teacher’s in an impressive array of specialty yoga, over a decade of study of alignment-based hatha, and so much more (Inner Light Method, Neurosculpting®, SourcePoint Therapy).
