Chicago is a breeding ground for motivational stories – residents of the City of Big Shoulders is known for hard work and getting things done. So it's no surprise that, in its October 2013 newsletter, Dahn Yoga & Health Centers focused the spotlight on one standout Chicagoland location: the Dahn Yoga Center of Mount Prospect, Ill.
The newsletter, "Dahn Yoga Life," discusses the successes of the center. It was originally located in Glenview, Ill., but relocated to the humble town of Mount Prospect and brought a vibrant new energy to the town. The community welcomed the studio with open arms and, in turn, the center has helped many residents move toward better wellness. Practitioner Ken, for instance, was able to lose weight and find relief from chronic fatigue and depression.
This also serves as an example of motivational stories for teachers. The center's manager, Deanna Patacsil, puts great focus into the basics that make for a strong community of yogis, including quality instruction in both regular and specialty classes. Thanks to her inspiration, many Dahn Yoga members contribute their time to bettering the lives of others by introducing yoga to people in nursing homes, the park district, apartment complexes and other spaces.
