What if we moved through our lives full of curiosity, wanting what we already have? The word santosha is translated in Sanskrit as “contentment.” In this practice, which includes movement, meditation, and journaling, you will be invited to look at the ways desire and grasping affect our capacity for wholeness. Root your heart-mind in gratitude, and observe how your life—as it is in this very moment, is already enough.
Diana has been practicing yoga for almost three decades because of how spacious her body feels—particularly in savasana—likely due to that subtle sensation of feeling fully alive while preparing for death. Her teaching is an offering of the poetic awareness of presence in the interplay of movement and stillness. She has been teaching in Portland for 14 years. She benefits from the teachings of James Morrison and Manorama; has been greatly influenced by Dana Flynn, Jasmine Tarkeshi, and Matthew Remski, and is inspired by her dog, nature, ancient texts and mystic poets. Diana weaves mindfulness and yoga philosophy into asana classes as a reverent recognition of the fact that, as she’s apt to saying, “We’re Dying!”
