Diana went on to continue her Ayurvedic studies at Dr. Vasant Lad’s Ayurvedic Institute and then continued her training in India to strengthen her voracious appetite for learning about Yoga and Ayurveda.
While at Dr. Lad’s institute, Diana was extremely fortunate to meet Michele Schulz, an amazingly gifted staff member, who ignited her interest in Ayurvedic cooking. Diana went on to study intensively with Michele Schulz to formalize her training in Ayurvedic cooking.
Diana believes that being an active participant in one’s own self care is vital; especially, in the kitchen! She continues to study Yoga and Ayurveda and is passionate about sharing these teachings with others. It is her intention for the outstanding, therapeutic benefits of Yoga and Ayurveda to provide empowerment to others so that they can lead happy, healthy, balanced lives.
