Longtime yoga instructor here at Santosha, Dianne brings her students into this practice with a deep knowledge and understanding of alignment in their bodies and awareness in their minds of exactly what is happening within the four corners of their mat. Committed to building a solid foundation from which to grow, Dianne brings a calm patience to her classes that is ultimately the goal of the practice for each of us. She leads through example.
If you have been hesitant to move from Gentle yoga to Beginning Vinyasa, Dianne's class is a wonderful segue. If you have been practicing for years at any level, Dianne's class will help you reconnect with the building blocks that reunite you with the power of taking it slow and not rushing the process.
Beyond her group studio classes, Dianne's passion lies in the field of yoga therapy. During our anniversary week she generously offered mini private sessions to students with "burning yoga questions" to help them build a stronger practice. If you've ever considered taking a private session with a qualified teacher to help you develop your yoga skills or address health/wellness issues, Dianne is the GO-TO teacher.
"Being in Dianne's presence whether in the studio lobby or on the mat in her class, always brings me to place of inner quiet where I can truly connect with the moment. She is an extraordinary gift not only as a teacher here at Santosha, but in my life." ~dina
We believe that yoga has the power to transform lives, and our goal is to make this transformative practice available to people of all shapes, sizes, ages and abilities.
Yoga is an ancient scientific system designed to empower health, happiness and a greater sense of self. The word ‘yoga’ means ‘union’ and refers to the oneness of mind, body and spirit. Yoga is not a religion, it is a practice. It supports and enhances all cultural, racial and religious backgrounds. All classes at Santosha reflect this philosophy, where everyone is welcome to find peace and contentment just as they are.
What Students Are Saying
Located in the heart of Bethany Village, we are dedicated to helping students of all ages and abilities discover their inner strength on and off the mat. More about us.
