Bio:

I’m Diana and I’m a Yoga instructor from Austin, Texas! 

Rooted in a lifelong love for movement and athleticism, Diana’s Journey to Yoga sparked the first time she walked into her first power vinyasa class just after her collegiate Diving career ended. Having a background in competitive dance, ice skating, and gymnastics, Diana shifted her focus and attended the University of Texas in Austin for collegiate diving where she was named 2-time All American and MVP. Yoga sparked the same fire that Diana had experienced in all of her athletics. She was inspired by the power of the breath, the connection of the mind body, and the possibilities that emerge when you let go of resistance to your own edge. 

Diana integrates exciting inversions, athletic sequencing, and playful transitions in her teaching and her practice. In her classes, you can expect that you will dance with your edge, get upside down, and expose yourself to the next level of yourself. When Diana is out of the studio you can expect to find her training for her next marathon, wake surfing on Lake Austin, or enjoying a glass of wine with her friends. Work hard, play hard, and discover new possibilities in the process.
