I earned my BA from Indiana University of Pennsylvania where I studied Anthropology, Religious Studies, Pan African Studies and Dance (just to show how much I love to learn 😊). It is there that I found a yoga practice and became interested in treating the body from a wholistic perspective. Since then I have discovered Functional Medicine and Holistic Nutrition. It was my interest in these coupled with my love of yoga that led me to complete my 200rytt at Moonglow Yoga under Cassandra Pfaff. 

Even as a teacher now, I feel my main job is that of a student; always open and hungry to learn more. I love to learn about the various styles of yoga and feel that there is a form of yoga to go with whatever you may need for the day from a fast paced energetic vinyasa flow to a calming and restorative yin practice and everything in between. I enjoy bringing yoga into the lives of people who have never experienced it before and sharing the many health benefits it can give them.

I am always seeking to expand my experience by continuing my training, therefore adding more tools to my own practice and thereby growing as a teacher. Since earning my 200 hours I have completed a Kids Yoga Certificate program, a Yin and Restorative Certificate and have completed a Ashtanga workshop series to complement my home practice. 

When I am not practicing yoga I am busy with my husband and our 2 and 5 year old, volunteering at our CSA farm, cooking Whole Foods from scratch and enjoying time in nature with our 2 dogs. Just as I practice the yin and yang of yoga I believe life is all about balance 😊🙏🏻

Cyndy Weir,RYT 200

I have been practicing yoga for over 14 years and decided I wanted to share my passion and love of yoga with others. I completed my teaching certification with JGYoga and Wellness in the summer of 2016 and really enjoy helping others in their yoga journey. 

  I live outside of Stoystown in Somerset County.  We have pigmy goats, chickens, a blind cat, two other cats and Taylee our 12 year old chocolate lab, Nash our 5 year old standard poodle, and princess Sadie our 1 year old Yorkie!  They are so much fun along with our 2 young grandsons.  

  My family and I have part ownership in Mountain Ridge ATV park located just outside of Reels Corner.  

  My past experience includes working in Social Services as a caseworker, a restaurant owner,  and a licensed Real Estate agent. 

  I look forward to sharing our yoga journey together, Namaste.

 



D’Anna V. Kromer,RYT 200


While attending an intensive self-actualization course popular in the 80’s, she was asked, “What do you want?” Her reply, “to be happy.” In 1986, she found her happy pill in Hatha yoga. She believes that the tree of yoga offers everyone access to their birthright; to be happy and free.

Teaching came naturally for her. She was an avid swimmer and certified lifeguard/swim instructor in college. Her summers were spent teaching at youth camps and to physically challenged individuals to compete in Para Olympics. After graduating from Southwestern University in Georgetown, TX with a degree in business, she discovered the new aerobics dance craze popular in the 80’s. Thanks to Jane Fonda and the encouragement of the dance studio owner, D’Anna became a certified Aerobics Dance Instructor.

A certified yoga instructor since 2003 and certified fitness instructor/trainer since 1986 with experience as diverse as the fitness industry. Some of her certifications include The Aerobics and Fitness Association of America, Aquatic Exercise Association, Madd Dogg Athletics, Silver Sneakers, PowerHouse Pilates, The Yoga Institute and Wisdom & Wellness. Since 2000, D’Anna has taught yoga and Pilates in various area locations: The Aerobic Center (Gbg.), Seton Hill (Gbg.), St. Vincent College (Latrobe), Westmoreland County Community College, Wisdom & Wellness (Gbg.), Laurel Ballet (Gbg.), MoonGlow Yoga (Gbg.), Inner Strength Yoga (N. Huntington), Yoga on Third (Irwin). In 2009, she completed the 200 hours prerequisite to become a Registered Yoga Instructor with the Yoga Alliance.

Most days of the week you will find her at My Fitness Kitchen (Latrobe) teaching many of the spinning and yoga classes. Each class although practical in content is made special with her musicality, intuitive flow, and motivating energy. D’Anna brings her friendly nature, caring & serving spirit, enthusiasm and wit to every class. One of her favorite quotes, Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort and skillful execution. - a clothing label (no kidding). Yoga is our quality time uniting the self and spirit.

She & her husband, Mike, married 24 years, enjoy their family life in Norvelt, Pa. Their daughter, Haylie, graduates from MercyHurst University May 2017, and son, Adam, attends Mount Pleasant High School. D’Anna is a student at Health Coach
Institute and will soon offer health coaching services.
