Y Offering New "Power Yoga" Class, Tuesdays 11:15am


diana moorePower Yoga is a fitness-based vinyasa practice. An offshoot of Ashtanga Yoga, it has many of the same qualities and benefits, including building internal heat, increased stamina, strength, and flexibility, as well as stress reduction.

The Y is now offering Power Yoga on Tuesdays, 11:15am with instructor Diana Moore.

Diana began her yoga studies as a college student in 1995 after throwing her back out carrying a heavy backpack on one should across her college campus. Her fascination with the mind-body connection and the effectiveness of holistic healing arts led her to develop a part-time practice as a holistic health consultant alongside her professional work as an academic librarian and college professor. In 2014, after completing several mentally grueling years working on her Ph.D. in educational technology, she decided to focus on teaching yoga and mind-body theory in order to foster holistic well-being in her clients/students and a balance of mind, body and spirit. Influenced by several traditions, she offers yoga classes with a balance of gratitude and joy. Her classes are a masterful, artistic blend balancing the alignment of your body, mind and spirit. She is experienced in teaching both introductory and all-levels vinyasa and power yoga classes, children’s yoga, chair yoga, as well as Ashtanga Primary and Second Series.

Diana currently is a registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance at the 500-hour level and is working toward completion of her yoga therapist certification through the Yoga Life Institute. She is also a certified Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist though the Himalayan Institute. She holds additional certifications in barre, Spinning, holistic nutrition, life coaching, hypnotherapy and as a Reiki Master.
