Dominique Ylvisaker became a massage therapist in 2011 after graduating from CenterPoint Massage & Shiatsu Therapy School in St. Louis Park. Her strengths include Swedish techniques integrated with myofascial release to create an overall relaxation in mind and body. She has been practicing yoga since 2010 and earned a 200-hour teacher training at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, Massachusetts in 2013. She then completed a three-month internship in Minneapolis, where she discovered her method and philosophy of teaching. She taught professionally in her hometown of Milwaukee. She believes that yoga can be for everybody and honors and welcomes each unique practice in all her classes. There is no perfect posture or ever a wrong way to breathe, she says. In addition to teaching yoga and offering massage, she is a nanny for a local family. Dominique also enjoys traveling with her husband, attending concerts, cooking, and practicing yoga on/off the mat. She hopes to soon become a 500-hour certified teacher and looks forward to working with the community at Green Lotus.
