Align and Thrive - Yoga Health Coaching

Feel Lighter, Brighter, More Energized, Relaxed and Calm

Discover balance and easeful living through self-awareness and the daily habits of Ayurveda

By aligning your daily routines with the cycles of nature and with your personal values and goals, you will live a more healthy, balanced and fulfilling life. Because mediocrity just won't do.

  • Do you want healthier habits but you keep sabotaging yourself?

  • Are your friends, co-workers, or family members perpetuating negative choices?

  • Do you struggle with setting strong boundaries, saying "no" and making time to take care of yourself?

  • Do you want more balance but don’t know how to tip the scales and create the time and space for what matters most?

  • Do you want to experience more ease in your day-to-day life but feel overwhelmed with the never-ending to-do list?


Self-care isn’t selfish. By putting yourself first you increase your capacity to be of service and at the top of your game in every area of your life. When YOU feel better you're better to those around you. Your relationships improve, you’re more productive and you can make everyday count.


Ayurveda is the oldest healing science in history. The power of this time-tested ancient wisdom lies in aligning our daily routine with the rhythms of nature. This daily routine, or Dina Charya as it is called in Ayurveda, is central to promoting health, well-being and preventing imbalance. These daily rituals are one of the simplest and most powerful tools we have to take our health into our own hands

Before I implemented the habits of Ayurveda, I felt like my life was not my own. I was stuck in a victim mentality and didn’t feel like I was in control of my life.

But I knew I was destined for more. After adopting the daily routines of Ayurveda, my life transformed. By making time to take care of myself, I became whole again. For the first time in my adult life, I had a clear sense of my purpose AND I had the energy, drive, motivation and enthusiasm to go forward and follow it.

From that point forward, I began sharing this life-changing ancient science with as many people who would listen. 

In the last 4 years I’ve helped over 130 students transform their lives through healthier habits. It took me years to make the shift, but I've streamlined the journey to make it faster, easier and way more fun!

What Participants Are Saying:

“Being an insomniac was always the most reliable thing in my life. A few months ago I realized that I lacked more and more energy and resilience. So I thought, I have to do something and it might as well be this.

If someone would have told me that after just a few weeks I would get up at 5.30 in the morning after 7 hours of the deepest possible sleep and full of energy & excitement to start all my various fun projects, I would never have believed it. So what’s happened? Hard to explain, but it felt easy and natural. It was the empathetic guidance of a wonderful coach, a supportive group that shared amazing stories, and a clear goal on the horizon. Thank you, Dana Vanwoerden Skoglund! Keep doing your magic. For me it’ll be an ongoing learning curve, and an ever surprising route to travel.”

“What this course gave me was the structure and gently facilitated accountability system to layer these habits into my life in a logical, naturally progressive way. I was able to realize what my keystone habits are and observe the effect on my life and vitality when i neglected these key habits. I also got a lot out of the group sharing - though i myself am pretty introverted (particularly in group settings), I was grateful for the generosity in sharing from the other members of the group and the ability to compare/contrast my experience with theirs.
Dana, as always, was fantastic. humble, grounded, hilarious, approachable, knowledgeable, dedicated and totally real. This is a program for anyone and everyone! ”

“This 10 week course opened up the realization that it’s possible to put life changing habits in to place. I had really lost hope in some areas of my life. I thought I wasn’t able to stick with things long enough and that it was just “who I was”. I was stuck in these old stories of “I am not a morning person”, “I am unorganized” - although I desperately wanted to be an “organized morning person”. Learning about my composition (Dosha) suddenly made my whole life make sense, the highs and lows I experience and the general state of discomfort. Dana laid it all out in small bite-sized steps, each leading in to one another in a very non-threatening kind of way. For the first time in my life, I didn’t feel overwhelmed with all I wanted to be, do and change. The golden nugget for me was that change happens one step little step at a time. Re-vamping habits and replacing old habits is totally possible. Knowing this has opened up my entire life from the seat of “possible”.
Infinite gratitude. ”

“Dana’s Align & thrive course changed my life more than I realized it ever could! In just a short time over the course of 2 to 3 months, I’m waking up at 5:30 AM without an alarm?!! My husband is shocked & amazed! I have completely reconnected, without fail, to a personal daily yoga practice followed by meditation each morning.
This course helped me to manage my daily life schedule to accommodate & make room for what really matters to me. I have more energy and less feelings of overwhelm and intensity. With little to no effort, I gave up television, coffee & the urge to eat chocolate on a daily basis. Haha.
I’d recommend this course to anyone who would like to build a better relationship with themselves and shift with little effort into a healthier and easeful life....
Dana is an excellent coach.
I’m thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this community.... ”

“There’s a lot of noise these days about self-care. But what does it actually mean? I used to hear that term and roll my eyes because it seemed so new age-y and surface. When I looked around at how it was being used I saw more busy-ness, more perfecting, more distractions and more indulging. But Dana Skoglund had a different interpretation of it- being honest and clear with ourselves about what we really need. To me self-care looks a lot like facing down the deeper darker parts of yourself and shaking out the cobwebs. To me it looks like soul searching and making room to pursue the things that call to you and giving yourself space to make mistakes and fail. I LOVE a good massage or a pedicure or whatever but they’re not the things that make my life any richer feeling. Connecting, letting go of sh/t that doesn’t work, making space for quiet, pursuing projects that I’m passionate about... these are the things. Dig deeper. The world needs deeper these days. And if you need help check out Dana’s coaching. It’s straight to the point and no fluffy stuff”

— Katie Nugent

“My habits have shifted especially my morning routine. I did not think it was possible for me to get up and feel rested and begin my day with a yoga practice. My routine sets me up for an easeful day. I feel present and unattached to what is going on around me and feel incredibly clear and present. I have more energy and am more aware of what my body needs.
I have received so much more than I had hoped. I feel that I have come to have a deeper love, understanding and acceptance of myself. I have noticed a lot of realizations relating to my personal relationships with friends/work/family. I am clearer on what my boundaries are.”

— Denise Dillon

"In the past year of taking Align and Thrive I have transformed my life-long habits. For the first time in over 20 years I am down 13 pounds and feel so much more energized. I will never go back to my old way of being. It's such a blessing that Dana came across my path."
