Jinju Dasalla, PhD, RYT, is on a mission to share the medicine of “flow” and inspire the awakening, honoring, and celebration of the divine feminine wisdom within all beings. Dr. Dasalla is a co-founder of the NaiAsa Institute (formerly Soul Flow Alchemy), where she directs programs for individuals and organizations pioneering new paradigms of healing, education and transformational learning based in scientific, spiritual and somatic principles. These programs include women’s coaching journeys, retreats, somatic life coaching, and therapeutic flow arts.
Dasalla is also the creator of NaiAsana™, an intercultural somatic practice weaving asana, dance, and flow arts, to ultimately awaken universal feminine power and access innate somatic wisdom, both on and off the mat. This vinyasa of spiral, rhythmic and cross-body movement patterns, often incorporating props such as poi, hula hoops, and fire, allows effortless, joyful, restoration and repattering of the nervous system. In this way, not only does the NaiAsana practice help individuals discover new ways of moving, but also provides many therapeutic benefits.
Dr. Dasalla is also a former Neuroscience Research Fellow of the National Institute for Health (NIH), a published author in the April 2018 Brain Research Bulletin, faculty member of Hawai’i Yoga Institute, and was featured in Elle.com, after her successful debut at Wanderlust 2016. She is the creator and author of Beauty that Transforms and The Goddess Brain, both based on the successful transformational coaching program birthed in Hawai’i.
Dasalla’s most cherished mission and passion is creating space for women to awaken to their highest soul purpose and manifest their heart’s deepest desires. She currently lives in Bali with her beloved Nova and their 4 year old son, Sekai.
