About Dina Melnychuk

500 RYT Certified Yoga Teacher in the Bay Area, CA

From an early age, I loved movement. As a child, you could find me in front of the mirror dancing. In my teenage years I moved to the stage, training and performing as a ballet and folk dancer. My love of movement led me to try a yoga class at a local fitness center where I lived in Ukraine. I immediately fell in love with yoga  - the graceful postures combined with the physical challenge and intensity drew me in. I found that yoga not only brought physical strength, but also mental clarity and inner stillness. I became more familiar with my thoughts and more skilled at pausing and choosing which thoughts to engage with. Through this subtle shift in thinking, I was learning to respond rather than react to life. I began to practice and study yoga and meditation regularly, and eventually completed a yoga teacher training program after moving to the U.S. with my daughter.

I established a new life in the U.S., with yoga as a central piece.

I found a home in the community at the yoga studios where I practiced and taught, and found confidence and inner strength from my practice I did not know I had. In my vinyasa classes, you can expect pranayama (breathwork), meditation, and dynamic yoga asanas (postures).

Thank You!

I would love to honor my teachers who have sculpted me into the teacher and person I am today. Bows of gratitude to Roman Rokotel (Ukraine), Jillian Glikbarg,  Rod Stryker, Dharma Mittra, Elena Brower, Stephanie Chee Barae, Kristine Tom, Hana Raftery, Steve Schmidt and Maralle Fakhereddin.

See What Others Have Shared

I took Dina’s classes 2-3 times a week for more than a year before the pandemic, and during the pandemic have returned to her classes over and over. Her calm and thoughtful presence invites me to settle my monkey mind and focus on the moment. What I appreciate most about Dina’s classes are the long sequences she builds the first half of class.  They truly allow my body to get warmed up so I can work deeper into poses.  Dina’s classes often push me to my edge, but she creates such a supportive space that I never feel pressure to go further than is safe for my body. Thank you, Dina!
