About Diana:

Diana DeCesare is a student of life and has a deep appreciation for health, nature, and all things sacred. Her specialty is caring for the mind, body, and spirit. A Division 1 student athlete, Diana graduated from Loyola Marymount University with a BS in Pre-Physical Therapy and an autoimmune disease. Years of overtraining caught up to her, and although she looked healthy, she felt about 4 times her age. She realized health was so much more than eating healthy and exercising. If she wanted to truly feel better she would need to empower herself and learn about holistic healing. So she refused Western drugs, and did just that. Along her journey she became a Certified Holistic Health Coach, Pilates Instructor, 200hr Yoga Instructor, and Ayurvedic Health Counselor. Her current passion is teaching and counseling others in the science of Ayurveda. Ayurveda is a comprehensive healing system that nourishes the mind, body, and spirit through techniques such as mantra, yoga asana, pranayama, herbs, and diet. It is by these means that Diana healed herself naturally and no longer has any indications of autoimmune disease. Diana’s goal is to help people achieve optimal health through coming into right relationship with one’s true self and nature.
