Diana is the founder of Twisted Roots Yoga. As a teenage ballerina and a former opera singer, yoga concepts were not foreign to her but it wasn’t until her mid 20’s where she really started to seek out the calm serenity of yoga. Her passion for yoga was born with her journey into motherhood. During her first pregnancy she started looking for something that would help her connect to her newly changing body and fell into yoga. By her second pregnancy, she knew that not only did she desire yoga in her life, but she wanted to spread the beautiful gift of yoga to the community around her. Now a mother of four, Diana can’t imagine life without the balance of yoga.
Diana completed her 200-hr YTT through Be Yoga in Marietta, GA under Laurie Searle and Julie Eubanks in 2018. She began teaching immediately throughout the community and local studios but knew that there was so much more she was searching for. With so much gratitude towards her secular training, she knew she needed more of her Christian faith involved in her teachings. In 2019, Diana completed her 300-hr teaching certification through YogaFaith under Michelle Thielen and Laura Burkhart. During her 300-hr training, Diana felt God’s call for her to dive further into Christian Yoga and has made it her mission to spread Yoga Faith to everyone God sends her way.
Diana is the Owner and CEO of UpDog Smoothies and Juices, which is a vegan juice bar located in historical Marietta Square. She combines her love of yoga and knowledge of a healthy lifestyle of food to her teachings through the community.
Diana is a YogaFaith Ambassador with a 500-RYT, R-500-YFMT, a Registered Christian Yoga Association Trainer Certifcation and an Aerial Yoga Certification via Vita-Prana Yoga. She teaches YogaFaith, Vinyasa, Yin, and Aerial classes throughout her community under her LLC, Twisted Roots Yoga. Please follow her on her Instagram handle: Twisted_Roots_Yoga.
