Diana Shipp Yoga Teacher
Diana, the owner of Kailasam Yoga in Kerala, has a teaching diploma from the British Wheel of Yoga (Norfolk, England). She also studied at the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Ashram in Kerala, gaining a further teaching diploma in January 2000.
She has been teaching yoga for over 25 years, and now specializes in leading holidays and retreats in different parts of the world.
An experienced and well-qualified teacher, Diana is both down-to-earth and imaginative as well as flexible in her teaching. Although you may feel challenged during her classes, Diana’s belief is that yoga is not about achieving gymnastic-style postures, but about going deeper into postures and developing awareness, feeling the effects on your own body and mind. Her teaching is all about using the body to sill the mind – like all traditional Hatha Yoga.
She has many techniques to help you realise and experience this awareness, discover who you really are, and find inner peace. In her classes you can expect a mixture of limbering, use of breath during static and flowing posture work, prananyama (controlling the body’s energies through breathing techniques), meditation, visualization and relaxation.
