Dia was born a go-getter, with a unique ability to bask in the present moment. As a child, she would ask for extra homework from her teachers, but still twirl her way up the driveway after school, stopping to watch (and chat with) the birds in the trees. As an adult, Dia became a high-powered corporate litigator and a lover of yoga, energy, and light. While working long hours, often through the night, Dia used breathing techniques she’d learned in yoga as well as many half-pigeons and an occasional warrior pose, to keep her grounded and centered. Interestingly, the more Dia stayed grounded and centered, the more clearly she could see that this profession didn’t feed her soul. What does feed her soul is interacting with people in a meaningful way that leads to awareness, transformation, and the discovery of the love and light inside of oneself. Dia is now a coach for the spiritually curious, a meditation consultant, and a yoga teacher. She credits yoga with teaching her how to reach beyond perceived limits, how to breathe through challenges, and how to fail gracefully (and even to accept when she fails not so gracefully!). She has taken two 200-hour yoga teacher trainings, and knows she will always be a yoga student, as much as a yoga teacher. In her yoga classes, Dia brings an appreciation for the present moment to all of us who function as high speeds. By increasing awareness of perspectives, beliefs, and habitual thinking, Dia guides students to not only choose their actions, but to choose how they want to experience what already is. Dia brings playful movement and reflection, and offers deep meditation to her students. She strongly believes in offering variations and modifications to meet each student where they are that day, so that each person can play to their own edge. Dia offers a space for students to pause from the stress, get a great workout, and learn how to stay present when difficulties arise- both on the mat, and off.
