Wellness & Health Coaching

“I have been working with Diana for years with all she does and offers. I have made such huge strides in my health: back pain gone, energy much better, stomach issues and joint pain gone, and with the help of her newest capabilities as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner I am sleeping so much better, rashes I have been trying to figure out are gone, and for the first time in my life I know what it feels like not to be craving foods but rather I feel nourished! I have lost 13 pounds and I truly have tried everything in the past with no permanent success like this, I can not speak highly enough of all she does and I feel so much more in control of my health and understand all that I am accomplishing and why.” ~ Cindy B.  

“I love to exercise and have tried numerous diet things through the years. I have had a hard time figuring many things out as to why I could not lose weight, felt fatigued, and hurt even when I was trying to stretch and release muscle tension. Diana has helped me get rid of so much pain and I have sent many of my friends to see her with the same benefits. Now, with the her help, I have gotten to the root of many things and am seeing profound results. I have lost 29 pounds, am sleeping double the deep sleep time, and I do not feel hungry often at all. I know when I need to eat, but I do not feel “starving” and have no desires for junk things that I once did. I am so excited to be getting to the answers and, with her help, I can work on all the angles I need: body alignment, stress management, nutrition, and understanding why I am doing all I am.”

Life is on its Way Back

The days are getting longer and the horizon for warmer weather is visible! 

Life is on its way back. The trees, flowers, fruits and veggies, and the wildlife are on their way back to us and it feels so empowering! We have traveled through another season of release and rest (even though it may not have felt that way at times 😏) and the sun is starting stay with us longer and is much brighter. 

What are you awakening to this spring? What have you shed this past fall and healed/restored this winter? What are you envisioning for yourself as the light becomes brighter and the warmth wakens you back up?

This month, I am hosting a YEP workshop that has been so popular that many have joined it twice and I hope you can join me to not only prepare your body for all the warm weather activities coming, but to also work with your amazing fascia… what is now believed by even Western medicine to be the first formation of our entire body… a living shell very much like our pericardium of our heart!  As we awaken to this spring ahead, we have the ability to awaken our bodies from the cold and begin moving not only better than now but, maybe, better than ever in our entire life! I have some great, new, information to share with you all and I hope that you can join me. I would love to help you awaken your body’s full potential and begin to experience it's full ability for bio-feedback and amazing health and wellness. 

I am SO very grateful and feel so blessed to have essence receive the award for #1 Yoga Studio for a 3rd year in a row!
