About Dhyāna Yoga & Wellness
My name is Diana Byron, RYT and I'm a certified Kripalu Yoga teacher, Herbalist and founder of Dhyana Yoga & Wellness. I teach from the heart, informed by my own practice and experiences. I was first introduced to meditation in the nineties and in the years that followed, I also gravitated toward different forms of Yoga, holistic healing and women's groups.
When I started practicing Kripalu yoga, I noticed that it greatly enhanced my meditation practice. This is what inspired me to complete a 200-hour yoga teacher training at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in western MA. I enjoy showing others how asana (yoga postures) and pranayama (yogic breathing) can wonderfully prepare the body and mind for meditation.
As an Herbalist, I offer wellness consultations, workshops and apprenticeships in herbal medicine. My love for for the plants began as a child as I would often play outside in the woods collecting "specimens". As a young adult I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Biology but it wasn't until I became a mother seeking natural health alternatives that I felt inspired to study herbalism. I completed an herbal apprenticeship with herbalist Deb Galanos, and later earned a certificate in Herbalism through Rosemary Gladstar's herbal school, Sage Mountain.
Feel free to reach out to me with any questions or to schedule a consultation or class. I can't wait to show you how yoga, meditation and healing can change your life as it has changed mine!
