Diana is an Oahu based yoga instructor whose practice is inspired by her trainings and time lived in San Francisco, New York, & Bali.
After working 15+ years in the fast paced fashion industry, Diana returns home to realign her life’s work to be of service- as a yoga instructor & Professional Herbalist.
As an Herbalist, her yoga teaching is grounded in the 3,000 year old ancient traditions in Chinese Medicine & Ayurveda with yoga, mantra, breath work, & movement, seen as holistic “whole-body” healing systems. She is passionate about incorporating movement, breath, Bhakti song & chant to release trauma, grief, & anxiety stored in our physical bodies. Yoga is medicine, and our bodies have an innate ability to heal themselves when mind & body are in union.
As a surfer, her yoga practice is grounded in devotion … to the great Universe & Divine, the constantly changing tides & moon cycles- to the notion that we are a small part of something far bigger than ourselves. Surfing & yoga have always offered this single pointed focus, Oneness, presence & meditative quality. Her classes will challenge you physically, yet soften, create openings & intuitive flow states for healing, new beginnings, & creativity. Our life can flow effortlessly when we step out of the way & surrender to that which cannot be explained in our analytical minds.
