I love sharing the therapeutic tools of yoga & Ayurveda with people. Seeing a person become pain free, reach a desired goal, and improve his/her quality of life is priceless.
very responsive to one's needs, can customize a session, and opens one's mind to new ideas and approaches
I love the tempo of Yoga And Ayurveda Living. It is frame-by-frame. Frame advance is very important for yoga with CORRECT POSTURE. In other words, Diana teaches gradually. Because she observes the movements of everyone. Thanks to that I get miraculous effects every time. This is not a flattery. This is the truth!
My relationship with Diana started out as a private yoga instructor. Through her teachings I learned a lot about myself and my body. She taught me poses that were specifically good for me, she also taught me about many foods to eat that were also good for me. There are countless things I have learned from her that are advantageous to me. One thing that I love about Diana is that she practices what she preaches. Diana also works for me as my dogs caretaker and she always takes care of them like they are her own. Diana is a very kind compassionate person. She always put people first and takes very good care of them and their needs. It is a pleasure working with Diana , she is a very bright caring person and I always learn new things from her. Diana works for me at Stepping Forward Counseling Center and has always been open to learn new things and does anything that is asked of her. Not only is she a yoga instructor/nutrition consultant for the clients, she has worked as my assistant as well as in several other capacities. She is always early for work, takes on many different tasks and always demonstrates the utmost professionalism. As the CEO, I find it difficult to find committed dedicated employees. Diana is an employee that I am honored to have as part of my team.
Diana is very knowledgeable in her field of yoga and Ayurveda. she is compassionate, caring and detail oriented in the time she gives each of her clients
I meet with the student/talk on the phone/email to discuss the students questions and concerns. When we meet in person, I observe physical, physiological, emotional, and energetic qualities and structure the class to be supportive for the student's needs.

I completed my first yoga teacher certification in 2001 and then, dove right into teaching at a local health club that had a strong emphasis on yoga classes. I taught an amalgum of group classes at the health club and private classes in clients' homes. In the beginning I taught about 25 classes per week!
