Dominique Ponko Owner of Yoga Flow

Dominique has been teaching yoga since 2002. Yoga has completely transformed her life. She was drawn to yoga for the peace and tranquility that she was searching for in her own life, giving her clarity of mind and strength of body. Dominique has witnessed the healing energies that occur when you step onto your mat and let go of the outside world for 75 minutes. Her teaching style combines her light sense of humor and strong intuition to feel what her students need in each class. She teaches you how to release your fears and step into uncharted waters with confidence. You never know what to expect when you step onto your mat. She naturally takes the monotony out of everyday life, letting your soul go on an adventure and your body and mind detox with each and every yoga pose.

Dominique is a registered teacher and yoga school through Yoga Alliance. She currently owns 5 yoga studios. The Yoga Flow studio is proud of its own unique Vinyasa flow but most importantly rooted in the breath. Each posture is guided by the ujjayi breath and as long as you use the breath you're doing yoga whether it is moving or resting. She is very grateful for all of her instructors. Dominique says, "When you open your doors with the intent of spiritual transformation the right teachers and students will roll out their mats. Life is short and we only have a number of breaths to leave a positive mark on the world. Use your breaths wisely." Dominique has traveled the country attending various workshops but says she learns the most from her students. She instructs an annual teacher training program and has helped over 300+ people fulfill their dream of becoming certified yoga instructors. When you let your light shine you give others the permission to do the same.

Wellness with Nature

Resting on 150 acres, River Mountain is bordered by Sweet Root Creek, Warrior Ridge and Tussey Mountain. River Mountain's stunning spaces are designed for reflection, mindfulness, and good vibrations on your self-care journey. Creekside yoga platforms, a restored barn turned wellness space, and the calm of nature make this the ideal destination for peace and wellness.

Located just a few hours from D.C., Baltimore, and Pittsburgh, in the mountains of Pennsylvania, River Mountain is remote yet easy to access.


Warrior Path

Running parallel to River Mountain's eastern ridge is Warriors Path, the great Iroquois Indian highway from Six Nations country, New York, to the Catawba country in the Carolinas. The historic path along Sweet Root Creek was one of the longest and most heavily traveled land routes in eastern North America, connecting Indigenous peoples over hundreds of miles.

The Underground Railroad

Black Valley was an active route along the Underground Railroad. Local histories principally credit four, free black residents with leading the aid network in this area: Rev. John Fidler, Elias Rouse, Joseph Crawley, and James Graham. Just to the south of the River Mountain property are 13 unmarked graves of enslaved people who died traveling the route to freedom.
