After exploring meditation with a bit of yoga since the 1990s, in 2007 Diana became a serious student of yoga to help support herself through an injury, grief, and manage the stresses of her job. Yoga has helped to build Diana’s confidence, gain strength in body and mind, enhance resilience, and provide a place to let go of the daily stresses. Yoga is a passion that she enjoy sharing with others.
Diana has been enjoying teaching yoga to a wide range of students of varying degrees of yoga experience and age since November 2015 first as a student then as a qualified teacher since July 2016. She later went on to complete her Yoga Therapy Diploma in April 2019 from Yogacampus and is now registered with the UK Complimentary and Natural Health Care Council (CNHC) as a Yoga Therapist. She has also complete her Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Teacher Training through Mindfulness UK. Diana has a gentle, non-dogmatic approach to meeting people where they are and working alongside them to enhance their physical and mental well-being.
Diana continues her learning with her primary teachers, Lisa Kaley-Isley and Graham Burns. Diana believes that she always is learning and is a student, too, taking courses to continue to evolve as a teacher and therapist to best serve her students.
For extra fun she enjoys gardening, walks in nature, a bit of travel, and cooking tasty meals and treats!
When I was five years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.
