studied yoga for over 20 years from great masters at the Jivamukti Yoga Center,
teachers like Eddie Stern, John Scott, David Williams, Danny Paradise and
Michael Gannon. All that experience led her to become a teacher herself and
she completed yoga teacher training course at the Synergy Yoga Center in Miami,
Diana spent years in front of the computer before (her profession is web/graphic
designer, and she has an MA in philosophy) realizing she was missing the inner-looking
purpose in her career as well as just plain physical exercise.A decade in
high-powered business arenas in Salt Lake City, New York and Miami brought
her to realization that she has to make a change in her lifeand devote more
effort to practicing yoga.
She believes that if you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything
at any age. She supports the idea that yoga's transformational powers - physical,
mental and spiritual, are available to all, slowly, through a regular practice.
After living in the USA for 12 years, she returned to Ljubljana, Slovenia,
her native country with an idea to guide others from distress to "de-stress”,
from disease to "ease". She combined her knowledge of philosophy with love
for yoga and in the year 2003 opened a Suryasakti Yoga Studio in Ljubljana,
Interest in her yoga classes these days is enormous, classes are full--she
gives private lessons for individuals, dance groups, theater performers and
media people. She published 2 yoga practice DVDs (Ashtanga and Suryasakti)
and an audio CD (Suryasakti yoga practice).
She organizes yoga teacher training program, through which she has already
educated over 40 new yoga teachers in Slovenia. Her school is authorized by
the International Yoga Federation and European Yoga Alliance.
In the summer of 2004 she was awarded a grant from the European foundation
for professional training program - Leonardo da Vinci, to further her knowledge
in yoga and healthy living.
She regularly organizes workshops in Ljubljana, Slovenia, with world-renowned
Ashtanga yoga teachers such as David Williams and Michael Gannon and an Iyengar
yoga teacher Michela Franci.
She participates in the Slovenian Chamber of Commerce with new regulation
and standardization of yoga and alternative medicine and is one of the evaluators
on the exams offered through them.
After spending 6 months in Dalian, China, where she was introducing Ashtanga
and Suryasakti yoga to Chinese people, she moved to Urawa, Japan, where she
currently lives. She combines her yoga teaching with studying traditional
Asian medicine and ancient ways of healthy living.
