Diana has has been integrating yoga into her life on a regular basis since 2008, but was first introduced to the practice as a child. She realized the healing benefits of a regular yoga practice when she faced life-changing health problems in 2011. Yoga, pranayama, and meditation and mindfulness practices became important modalities which she incorporated into her lifestyle to manage chronic pain and fatigue. This opened the door to another side to her work as a Holistic Occupational Therapist and she began to incorporate these modalities, adapted to each individual, into treatment sessions with patients.
Diana specializes in adapting yoga to fit any body. Her passions include showing students and private clients that anyone can benefit from a yoga practice and helping others to heal through a regular yoga practice. She has taught yoga to all levels, including students with spinal cord injuries, arthritis, lymphedema, strokes, and Parkinson’s to name a few.
Diana is a registered Yoga Teacher through the Yoga Alliance, has a certification as a Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga Teacher, and she is a Reiki Master Teacher. Diana enjoys regular meditation, yoga, walking, knitting, journaling, and loves to work on her art work, which also includes Zentangling.

For students who want a deeply relaxing and less physically challenging class. This compassionate approach emphasizes slower meditative simple movements. Plan to release tension, increase flexibility and breathe deeply. Accommodations will be made for people with limitations.
