Diane Ambrosini is a master yoga teacher and movement science specialist who has practiced yoga since 1997. Diane has worked as a coach, personal fitness trainer, hospital laboratory kinesiologist, and is currently a full-time yoga instructor. Early on, Diane Ambrosini generally taught the more rigorous and physically active styles of hatha yoga. Since teaching at A Gentle Way, she has learned to meld a deeper focus on relaxation and peacefulness in every style of yoga she teaches. Her classes allow active students to slow down a bit and appreciate inner and outer calm, while allowing less active students to lovingly explore how movement helps tap into inner and outer strength. She believes everyone can practice yoga, and that with practice, we can all rediscover our truest Self!
