In 2000, Diana walked out from her first yoga class feeling lousy about her inflexibility. That prevented her from returning to yoga until six years later, when under the tutelage of an experienced vinyasa and Iyengar teacher, she began to learn more about the techniques of the asanas and became really serious about yoga. She committed to a daily practice, and it is only with hard work and discipline that her body is what it is today.
After she was certified as a RYT-200 teacher under Vikasa Yoga Koh Samui in year 2013, Diana embarked on a journey of teaching and sharing her experience. She believes in constantly upgrading herself and continues to study with teachers from various lineages including Briony Smyth and Dice Iida-Klein (Bryce Yoga), Christina Sell, Kino Macgregor and Tim Feldmann (Mysore Ashtanga), and most recently completed her training in prenatal yoga with Jo Chan of Surya Yoga.
All the different branches of training has allowed Diana to become more versatile in her teaching, and thanks to her personal experience, she is very empathetic towards anybody who is stiff and inflexible, so leave your hesitations at the door!
Diana believe that nobody is born flexible enough for yoga, but that yoga is flexible for everybody to practise. “Yoga is 99 percent practice and one percent theory.”
