Yoga Therapy is the application of the ancient science of Yoga to enhance health and wellness at all levels of the individual: physical, psychological and spiritual. Yogic tools and techniques are selected, adapted, and modified appropriately for the individual or special population with respect to age, culture, and specific physical challenges to facilitate optimal health and healing of the body-mind.
At its core, Yoga Therapy is about self-knowledge. Guided by a Yoga Therapist, you can reveal a state of health that is innate by removing negative conditioning and patterns of the physical body, energy body, mind and emotions, core beliefs and perceptions, and spiritual body.
Simple explorations that facilitate a stronger connection to the physical body, strengthening your ability to read the early warning signs of stress and illness.
Simple explorations to familiarize yourself with the breath that vitalizes and integrates all aspects of your being.
Customized breathing practices chosen to increase, decrease, or balance the flow of energy or life force through all levels of being.
Appropriate warm-ups and poses chosen to maximize relief from the symptoms of stress as well as create a space for the integration of body, breath, and mind.
Imagery chosen to address your individual needs, promoting the relaxation response and facilitating a connection with your deeper self or spirit.
Techniques that encourage a state of complete rest and letting go, inspiring integration and transformation.
Practices that promote focused alertness and the ability to simply rest in the natural state of being.
Cultivating emotional self-support, encouragement, and commitment to living a life of optimal health and wellness.
"I have been a client of Diana's and feel she truly was called as a Yoga Therapist.
She has a rare gift."
"Working with Diana is one of the most rewarding and helpful experiences I have had. Diana helps individuals where they need help - physical, emotional, spiritual. Even when you don’t know what you need, Diana has the wisdom, knowledge, experience and at times it even seems like magic to guide you where you need to go. "
" Working with Diana in the Yoga for Recovery workshop series, was a blessing and helped get me through a tough winter. I became hopeful, and empowered to begin creating, "The Life of My Dreams". Her approach was compassionate, knowledgeable, and personable, which allowed for a space to share authentically. I am now sharing these tools with my own students."
