A Los Angeles native, Dionne loves travel and exploration. She believes developing an ability to deeply journey within is one of the most important, and fascinating, summits one can aspire to reach. She completed her 200hr training with Light on Lotus, 50hr Yin specialty with Yoga Loft, and is Reiki Level I certified (soon to be Level II)! Dionne enjoys mixing modalities in her classes, which can be a blend of pranayama, asanas, mudras, music, and journaling. She brings her affinity towards language and poetry into her classes because writing was once the only way she could give voice to her innermost feelings. Dionne loves coupling words with ways to leverage breath to calm the mind, ground the body, and invoke peace in one’s spirit.
The transformative power of yoga met Dionne during one of the most challenging times in her life. When the physical and emotional trauma of a failed relationship sent her on a journey she never intended, but one her body, mind, and spirit very much needed. Healing. A way to find center without judging the struggle to maintain balance. A way to meet life’s challenges with mindful breath, and an inner assurance that all will be well with the soul.
Yoga is her way home. To withdraw into the self and in place of criticism, find comfort… and compassion. In place of restraint, relaxation. Instead of constricting, releasing. Dionne brings these principles into her yoga classes and guided meditations. She hopes to help others find their way home. To live more mindfully… Acknowledging the divinity all-around, yet most importantly, within.
