Dante Baker is a native of the Washington DC area, growing up in Reston, VA. He has always been fascinated by human anatomy and its abilities to heal, move, and process. He first expressed these interests through gaining certification from the Aerobics and Fitness Association (AFAA) and the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) in 2007. He worked with wide a range of clients such as over-weight clients, young athletes and the elderly. He soon expanded to teaching large classes, including boot camp, athletic conditioning, kids physical education, kickboxing and body pump.
Complimenting this, he completed a 600 hour Massage Therapy Certification in 2010, while learning transcendental meditation and Tui Na—an ancient form of Chinese bodywork. Dante was fascinated by Eastern philosophy and enrolled in a nine month Qigong and Tai Chi Ball certification with Master Nianzu Li (L.Ac) in 2013. He maintains a strong Qigong practice and teaches personal clients as well as larger classes at various health studios .
In his exploration of holistic health, he explored the impressive effectiveness of sound healing with singing bowls to heal body, mind, and emotions, and now does this professionally. In 2015 he completed a Reiki Master certification, and in 2016 he received his 200 hour Yoga Teacher certification.
Dante works as a personal trainer and sees private clients for massage and Reiki. He teaches meditation, yoga, qigong classes, and performs crystal and Tibetan Sound Concerts. His personal philosophy is that the body has an innate wisdom within itself and the tools and services he provides, allows the body to perform the healing that it knows how to do.
