YIN YOGA with a Touch of THAI MASSAGE

Yin Yoga is a quiet, simple practice focused on the body’s connective tissue, and steeped in Yogic and Taoist philosophy. This class will include breathing exercises, the Yin practice, and end with a Yoga Nidra guided meditation — all while massage therapist Diana Seiler circulates around the room giving Thai Massage to participants. Class size is limited to ensure each student receives quality hands-on time.

 

Schedule a private class in your home for yourself, your family and friends.

Diana loves feeling and being, letting thoughts go, and inspiring others to do the same.  She has been teaching body movement through yoga, dance and massage for almost two decades.  Her classes and bodywork are guided by an astute understanding of body alignment and the ways of gracefulness in gravity.

Private Massage Instruction: Diana was a senior instructor at the Finger Lakes School of Massage from 2008-2019 teaching many forms of massage, self care and body mechanics along with mindfulness and sound healing.  In addition she has been teaching Thai Yoga Massage and offering personalized tutorials for the past 12 years.

ARTFUL LIVING: Self-care tools, tips and tricks

Artful Living is a class that will encourage you to look honestly at your life, your patterns, and your commitments. Through individual and group exercises this workshop will support you in designing healthy habits that are fun, engaging and long lasting.  You will learn simple, valuable, powerful, and practical exercises for supporting a healthy lifestyle, and for nourishing your body-mind-spirit.  Don’t miss this opportunity to delve into yourself, walking away with greater direction, inspiration, and tools to fuel you on your way.

 

Bio: Diana taught Self Care classes at The Finger Lakes School of Massage among other classes. She is a licensed massage therapist, certified holistic health coach and certified yoga instructor. 

Call if interested in bringing this to your community!

DANCE TEMPLE

Dance Temple supports you as a participant, in taking time for the self-care practice of being with yourself, in your body, out of your head, and moving as you feel called to do. The space is candle lit, the music meditative and at times bumpin’, creating a mood for inner reflection adnd outright soul-body shakin’. Come get your groove on!

 

Bio: Diana believes that movement is the most powerful practice for releasing the energy and stuck emotions that limit our joy and forward movement in life. Diana offers Dance Temple as a prayer for healing, self-connection and freedom of all sorts for those who participate. She draws from her experience of 5 Rhythms, Journey Dance, Trance Dance, and Dance Mandala which she found to inspire her the most. Guinea Dance (West African Dance), yoga asana, meditation and contact improv have also fueled her on this path. Diana loves to dance, and finds great satisfaction in supporting others towards finding love and freedom within. 

YIN YOGA with a Touch of THAI MASSAGE

Yin Yoga is a quiet, simple practice focused on the body’s connective tissue, and steeped in Yogic and Taoist philosophy.

Meditation and Mindfulness Practice

Diana has a natural interest in encouraging others to see the world with a broader lens.  Through surviving her own challenges in thought and perspective she brings personal wisdom to this topic.  She began her study and use of meditation and mindfulness practices in college to support her in seeing life clearly .  In the winter of 2013 Diana co-taught a course on Mindfulness at the Millbrook School, a college preparatory boarding school for students in grades 9-12. She then taught Mindfulness Practices to students and staff at The Finger Lakes School of massage for a number of years. These simple practices feel like some of the most important offerings she has to give others, supporting them in increasing their awareness and the choices involved in their experiences in life, full of complex relationships and challenges.

Acupressure Trainings for Nurses

*Acupressure Training for Nurses:  Diana led trainings for nurses in acupressure at the VA Hospital at Castle Point in 2014 and 2015.  These trainings are designed to give the nurses hands-on techniques for treating pain and discomforts in their patients. The fact that hospitals are becoming interested in implementing alternative approaches to the standard Western medications for treating pain is a huge step in the right direction for a holistic care system to be formed; offering a greater breadth of options for patients, and in many cases treating a problem without causing more problems in the process.

*Please contact Diana if you have connections to hospital(s) in the NY Metropolitan Area, or beyond.  Together, let’s spread these healing techniques!

“Diana is a wonderful instructor.  She makes Thai massage accessible, and the sequence is an incredible experience to both give and receive.  I appreciated the detail of the manual, clear explanations, and how she tied in movement and meditation into the workshop.”  -Ashley Corsetti, LMT
