Diane began to moderately practice yoga in her mid-thirties to repair injuries to body. When her third child began the long journey of health and developmental challenges, she increased her home yoga practice to six days a week. She believes that her practice was a beautiful, necessary, decade old gift from her nonverbal autistic son. She deepened beyond a physical practice by reading voraciously about yoga and studying yogic texts. She is a 500-hour RYT who is learning Sanskrit.  

She has practiced and studied a wide range of styles to include Hatha, Yin, and Ashtanga. Inversions, arm balances, and Vinyasa yoga are all favorite aspects of her steady practice.

She has spent most of her years teaching yoga to people seeking a new path to heal physical issues, helping them become more connected to their bodies in private and corporate sessions. Her personal quest/theme and sometimes anthem is tattooed on her neck which reads “What freedom looks like.” This is indicative of her playful, creative nature and deep desire to help others create more freedom on and off their mats.
