Diana has practiced yoga for decades and is a self- professed “Yoga mutt”. She practices daily, according to what she needs in the moment, and teaches from a place of deep respect for her students. Diana believes that the energy that is created in a yoga class benefits everyone involved- including the teacher. Her favorite classes are those in which her students laugh, and she knows that she learns as much from her students as they learn from her.
Diana believes devoutly in community and social justice, and knows that yoga service is the perfect vehicle for both. Knowing that yoga is a practice for life, she fully expects to be practicing and teaching for decades to come.
