Her Journey to the mat came by chance when Diane, a life-long runner, accepted an invitation from her sister-in-law to attend a yoga class. Diane struggled through postures until she discovered the support of breath. Continued practice brought calmness and quietness; she learned patience and self-acceptance. These carry into Diane's interactions with others. She is curious about how yoga presents itself in life off the mat.
Ever a runner and avid walker, when in need of renewal Diane finds a nature trail to wander. She feels most at home "playing in the dirt" in her backyard. Home also means curling up in a blanket cuddling with her two dogs.
Diane teaches yoga to pass along to others the benefits she has gained. She shares the wish John Lennon sings of in "Imagine," that everyone would live as one.
