"All of the exercises I learned gave me a better understanding of how to engage my core muscles and move my limbs freely. Diana has a great way of using helpful imagery so that each person can understand corrections that are necessary for a healthy body alignment. She is able to teach a class as well as aid to each individual student in a way that they can understand. The Essential Motions program focuses on small details of the body that can greatly affect the whole body. The techniques that I learned from Diana propelled me forward in my dancing career and aided me in my dance teaching career." -Kelsey Jacobsen

Most importantly because of her I now live with much less pain. - Genevieve Nedder, owner of Body Fundamentals in Tucson and Pilates instructor
