Yoga, says Laughing Lotus yoga studio founder Dana Flynn, is her divine dance with god. Dubbed the “Janis Joplin of yoga” by her students because of her irreverent style, the former hip-hop dancer, MTV reporter, and nightclub owner created the dance-friendly Lotus Flow Yoga with Jasmine Tarkeshi. They’ve opened two yoga centers in New York City and San Francisco where yoga, music, and dance can come together.
She has been featured in The New York Times and Yoga Journal, as well as on Good Morning America and the Today Show.
