Davina joined YogaOne in the summer of 2009 having never done yoga, but was a college athlete and figured yoga would be easy. That was not the case; however, she stayed with yoga and worked my way from a student to the Director of Teacher Inspiration and Progression for YogaOne Studios. In October of 2017, YogaOne was sold to YogaWorks, at that time she decided to use her years of experience with YogaOne to expand her reach. She now enjoys her days spent growing Melanin Yoga Project her nonprofit, mentoring teachers, leading yoga teacher trainings, growing her home studio Evolve at The Connect, and doing so much more.
She has had the opportunity to train with: Roger and Albina Rippy (200 hours- Hatha), Catherine Allen, Ann Hyde, and Heidi Somraz(CET & Advanced Teacher Training- Forrest yoga), and David Kyle (Progressive Ashtanga & Rocket Yoga), Ashley Rideaux (Yogaworks Method).
Before pursuing yoga full time, she spent ten years in Education where she taught Algebra, served in school leadership, completed her Master's in Educational Administration, completed her Ed D in Organizational Leadership, and completed the Rice University's Entrepreneurial Educators Program.
