Diana Gallegos holds a Ph.D. in neuroscience and completed a two-year post-doctoral fellowship and a research position in the Center on Aging at the University of Iowa. When she experienced the healing and therapeutic benefits of yoga in herself, she realized her purpose was not to be in the lab, her purpose was to share yoga. It is her heartfelt passion, joy, and life work to bring the gift of yoga to others, no matter their age or ability.
Come join Diana on Fridays at 9:35 a.m. for Yoga for Flexibility! This class—set to beautiful healing music—will flow through sun salutations, standing poses, seated and supine poses, and end with a soothing restorative pose. You will work your entire body, clear and calm your mind, and leave feeling more balanced and refreshed for your weekend!
New to yoga? No worries! Diana brings a compassionate and non-intimidating approach to her teaching. You can expect a transformative yoga class that moves at a pace you can truly experience, learn, and enjoy each pose. And Diana makes sure to move around the class making safe and effective adjustments, assists, and modifications when needed. This class is wonderful for beginners, but advanced yoga practitioners also love it!
