About Dhyāna Yoga & Wellness
My name is Diana Byron and I'm a Kripalu Yoga teacher, Meditation Coach, Herbalist and founder of Dhyāna Yoga & Wellness. I teach from the heart, informed by my own practice and experiences. I first learned to meditate in the 1990's, when I had the great fortune of studying with an enlightened Buddhist teacher, Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz. In the years that followed, I studied different forms of Yoga, holistic healing and goddess spirituality.
Today, I offer group meditations, classes and meditation coaching for individuals who wish to deepen their practice. My private Facebook group, Women Who Meditate is a space where women can support and inspire each other in their meditation practice and I welcome you to join!
In practicing Kripalu yoga regularly for several years, I noticed how it greatly enhanced my meditation practice. This inspired me to complete a 200-hour yoga teacher training at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Stockbrige, MA. I enjoy showing others how asana (yoga postures) and pranayama (yogic breathing) can help prepare the body and mind for meditation.
As an Herbalist, I offer natural wellness consultations, workshops and classes in herbal medicine. It was an early love for nature that led me to earn a Bachelor's Degree in Biology from Salem State University in Salem, MA. Later in life, I was drawn to study Herbalism and after completing an herbal apprenticeship locally, I earned a certificate in Herbalism through Rosemary Gladstar's herbal school, Sage Mountain.
For the last 17 years, I have had the pleasure of facilitating women's groups and volunteering for a women's non-profit organization, the Sisterhood of Avalon. I am also a proud member of Yoga Alliance and American Buddhist Society.
Feel free to reach out to me with any questions or to schedule a consultation. I hope you find Dhyāna Yoga & Wellness to be a true sanctuary for your body, mind and spirit.
