Diana Kratz, Yoga Instructor
Diana discovered Yoga about 17 years ago and fell in love with it. Diana had the pleasure of sharing her practice with students from ages 3-80+, locally in gyms and in resorts around the world.
Besides the strength, flexibility and openness yoga has taught her, it has also showed her how to slow down, to be more in the present and to live each moment more mindfully.
Diana looks forward to you joining us at The Training Center, practicing mobility and stability, connecting Body, Mind & Breath.
Education: Diana is a certified Yoga instructor through YogaFit, ACE, Foundations of Group Exercise, Silver Sneakers, Functional Strength & Balance Solutions, Yoga for Athletes, as well as Pilates & TRX. Diana will lead you on a journey using Yoga to enhance body awareness and stable range of motion, increasing mobility and flexibility. She will flow with the breath through standing and balancing asanas, eliminating stress with final relaxation. Check the schedule for class times & location.
