Diane’s journey towards Pain Care Yoga has been multifaceted and built upon the experiences and stories of her students and clients. As a yoga teacher, she felt drawn towards the therapeutic aspects of yoga. Hearing the student’s stories and guiding them through these healing yoga practices cemented her direction to use compassion and understanding to support those with chronic diseases. She graduated from Inner Peace Yoga Therapy as a Certified Yoga Therapist and continued on with further studies with Pain Care Yoga including a 300 hour Professional Mentorship. Her practice reflects that the two most essential tools for healing are treating the person as whole and building a therapeutic relationship with her students and clients. Diane resides in the Philadelphia area with her two daughters and pets and loves to let her hair down with some freestyle dance moves and playing on her djembe drum.
