Dominique Cowling MA, RYT

Dominique began practicing yoga after finishing years as a NCAA collegiate athlete and acknowledging that her mental and emotional well-being had been severely neglected. Her exploration with yoga has encouraged a deeper understanding of emotional instability and healthier alternatives to cope with it. In addition to her academic background in psychology, yoga has allowed her to embody the practice while seeking acceptance and liberation. Her natural curiosity about emotional health and subtle body energy continues to drive her search for healing modalities for the mind, body, and spirit.

Believing spiritual practice cannot be separated from social justice, she is a dedicated practitioner and teacher focused on serving marginalized populations. As a proud queer womxn of color, she hopes to increase visibility for those that aren't represented in mainstream culture. Spending time in South Africa to teach yoga and meditation to youth showed her that we must work to ensure that yoga is accessible for all communities. She is passionate about sharing holistic education and inquiry-based movement throughout the Bay Area. She currently works as a nature-based counselor and mindfulness educator with Seeds of Awareness
