Some of the lineages I follow, and my credentials and certifications are noted here.
But here’s the thing. My roots are deep.
My yoga practice began in 1978, long before selfies and the internet transformed yoga and astrology into massive industries.
I feel extremely lucky to have found yoga ~ or, it found me. Lucky to have devoted decades of my life to asana practice, which led me deep into the meditation caves and magnificent temples in India where I first noticed a connection between yoga and astrology.
Some credentials and certifications: Svaroopa®, Embodyment® Yoga Therapy, and Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy® (my practice also includes Iyengar, Kripalu, and Anusara) ~ and daily meditation and chanting. I am a Yoga Alliance YACEP; was among the first-ever RYTs and E-RYTs; and was the assistant director at Muktabodha Indological Research Institute in San Francisco Bay Area.
One of life’s biggest blessings is knowing gifted yogis and meditators, along with
- Western Astrologers and Vedic Astrologers many of whom I’ve studied with since the 1990s
- Qi Kung Masters (I studied this ancient art in China, 1994)
- Ayurvedic Healers
Reach out, say hi. I’d love to hear from you.
“Diane is an incredible teacher! I learned so much, not just about teaching yoga through the lens of astrology but also for understanding myself and my own life path. Plus, Diane is freaking awesome. You will not find a more genuine human.”
