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 leads holidays and retreats in different parts of the world, including the UK.
An experienced and compassionate teacher, Diana is both down-to-earth and imaginative as well as flexible in her teaching. Diana’s belief is that yoga is a spiritual practice – it’s not about achieving gymnastic-style postures, but about going deeper and developing awareness, feeling the effects on your own body and mind. Her teaching is about using the body to still the mind – the true purpose of Hatha Yoga.
She has many techniques to help you realise and experience this awareness, discover who you really are, and find inner peace. Her classes include 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 – lots of deep relaxation!
All her retreats are inclusive and fun as well as deep and powerful.
