Class Description: Diane's classes offer a simple yoga with modifications for special needs and an emphasis on the biomechanics of yoga and the relationship of mind, body, and spirit. She encourages students to discover how to feel the poses and the alignment in their own bodies, how to make the practice their own, and how to integrate breathe, movement, and the meditative aspects of yoga in a healing manner.
Diane Dunn began teaching yoga in Reno in 2016. My focus on the biomechanics of yoga began in 2013 prior to knee replacement due to arthritis I had taken yoga in various forms since 1980, but only really began to pay attention when I needed a knee replacement due to overuse and osteoarthritis. It was at this point that the work I was able to do with physical therapists and Angela Sullivan at Ascent therapy in Carson City , Nevada for the year prior to the surgery and the year after gave me the grounding for what I wanted to pass on. In 2016 I completed basic training in Yoga for the Special Child . This introduced me to Integral Yoga and adaptive yoga which I began teaching with Kathy Randolph at The Yoga Center in Reno, Nevada. I earned my 200 hour RYTC from Vira Bhava Yoga teaching training program under Amy Joytir and Kelly Gordon with Angela Sullivan as my mentor in 2017. Then I heard and saw Dr. Moonaz presenting online and I knew that was it. It was exactly what I needed to say and how I wanted to teach. From then I just can’t get enough I just keep wanting to learn more and go deeper and pass it on. I went on to specialize in Yoga for Arthritis under Dr. Stephanie Moonaz, completing Level I Yoga for Arthritis in 2017 in Boston, MA. Then mentored with Ann Swanson, whose book Science of Yoga had already been one of my Yoga bibles. I completed Level III training in 2020 with Dr. Moonaz. I was blessed to had the zoom teaching tutorial with Ann Swanson also in 2020 this really helped me when it became necessary to go online. In 2020 I began taking my classes onto zoom classes.
