About Duana Soeda
Duana Soeda Stinson aka Du has a lifetime of wellness experience. The first time Duana saw her mother squatting 400 lbs with free weights, she was 8 years old. Her mother was a power-lifter, bringing Duana to the gym while she would get in her routine. At 13 Duana was diagnosed with scoliosis, and her mother prescribed strength training as a remedy. She began to join her mom at the gym, learning proper form and technique. However, having also been introduced to Yoga, she believed increasing flexibility would help tremendously and began to practice the importance of stretching and mindfulness that comes from having a Yoga practice. This combination drives the foundation of her practice and teachings later on in life.
Since 2012, Duana has trained mothers, cancer survivors, triathletes, soldiers, clients with disabilities, people recovering from injuries, HBO executive producers, artists, those with weight loss goals, gain goals, and people who just want to move and feel good in their skin. Depending on your goals, her private sessions include an infusion of Pilates, Yoga, TRX, HIIT, strength, balance, functional, and corrective exercise to ensure each body get's what they need. She also teaches classes including, but not limited to, spin, metabolic conditioning, kettlebells, HIIT, FitRanx, and circuit classes.
