Diana McCall has taught Kundalini Yoga since 2009. She took her first Kundalini Yoga class in 1999 the week before she gave birth to her first child. Three months later she began a weekly practice, which soon evolved into a daily as practice as she began to experience relief from chronic back pain for the first time since surgery for sciatica five years earlier.
Diana has experienced the power of Kundalini yoga to uplift her mental and emotional well being while powerfully increasing her physical vitality. She continues to use the tools of Kundalini not only to heal, but also to manifest her visions. In 2004 she practiced a 40-day Sadhana with the intention of finding her birth mother. Seven days after completing the Sadhana she spoke on the phone with her mother for the first time (it’s an amazing story--feel free to ask her about it)!
Diana received her Yoga Teacher Training in Kundalini Yoga in 2009 during a month-long intensive at the Guru Ram Das Ashram in Espanola, New Mexico while her birth mother stayed to watch over Diana’s children. Kundalini Yoga uses mantra, breath, posture and mudra (hand positions) to stimulate and balance the endocrine and nervous systems, to increase strength and flexibility, and to deepen awareness. All of which leads to increased happiness, health and well-being. Diana is deeply devoted to sharing her practice with students of all levels.
Diana’s practice fuels and inspires a productive life beyond the mat. She is a mother to three children, the manager of the Dr. John Wilson Community Garden in Black Mountain, a specialty caterer, culinary and garden educator, and a facilitator and trainer of Technology of Participation™ methods.
