About the instructor

Bio

Diana started her career as a nurse and qualified as a nurse and midwife while living in the south of England. She moved to the midlands to complete her Health Visitor training and also took her BSc in Health studies at that time.She worked for three years on the Isle of Skye in the Scottish Western Isles as a combined midwife/Health Visitor and School Nurse. While there she worked with many clients including people with chronic conditions.

 

When Diana returned to England, she returned to her home county of Yorkshire where she worked as a Health Visitor for a while and also worked in nursing homes as she was a single parent at this time.  She retrained as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner which involved completing a Masters degree. She then worked in general practice seeing patients with varied conditions and illnesses assessing treating and advising. Diana became interested in yoga and complementary therapies also at this time and completed reiki 1 and 2. She also has certificates in counselling and hypnotherapy and studied with a zen master in mindfulness and meditation.

 

When she closed a successful aesthetics business, she decided it was time to follow her passion. Diana had completed an 11 month module in yoga and needed the next step so enrolled on the 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga Hero in Leeds which is registered with Yoga Alliance where she studied vinyasa flow. Diana is also trained in yin yoga and subtle yoga.

 

Diana has a particular interest in mental health, women’s health and arthritis and chronic pain conditions. Currently she offers group classes and 1 to 1 sessions and plans to offer workshops. She offers an eclectic mix of yoga styles with a bent towards mindfulness and the benefits to the nervous system for ALL ages and fitness levels. She will be completing further training over the next few years and is excited about teaching and looking forward to sharing her knowledge over the coming years. Diana is a lifelong learner with a passion and wonder for life. She likes spending time in the countryside, walking, chilling, reading and writing.
