Yoga at the wall:


The dreaded step through:


Recording artist Anu French accompanied our Saturday evening practice with beautiful harmonium and song. Visit to purchase her CD, art, and wearable prints. You can also find some of her retail offerings at PuraVegan in the DeBaliviere area of Saint Louis at the corner of Pershing and Belt.


Many of you brought Yoga Rising, with a forward written by Dianne and with Dianne on the cover. Contact and support your locally owned bookstore first. After that, visit



For Yoga Alliance continuing education credits, Dianne asks that you please contact her directly  at [two nn's and two yy's].


We hope you enjoyed the weekend. We also hope you will keep the conversation going around body positivity and diet culture, accessibility in yoga, and social justice.


For our part, your organizers were thrilled that so many of you share our love for Dianne. We love her openness; and her willingness to share her knowledge, wisdom, and her challenges; and of course we love that she shares her practice.


Thank you Dianne!

Your first yoga workshop? We're honored that you chose this one! To help you and all participants to fondly remember everything, please check out these yoga matters:

  1. Arrive 15-20 minutes before class time to insure that class can begin on time with little disruption. Please sign in and remove shoes outside the studio.
  2. Turn off electronics prior to entering the class. Some instructors allow for photos. Put phone on mute and avoid using flash.
  3. Minimize conversation or go quiet altogether. Some use this as a time to transition from the outside world to the inner world with meditation or relaxation. It is perfectly ok, however, to speak when the teacher is engaging with you! Briefly introduce yourself to the person on the next mat. Yoga is about connection. Yoga is fun.
  4. Ask questions mindfully.
  5. Yoga is not a competition. Respect where others are in their practice.
  6. We don't recommend a meal for too close to the beginning of class as it may create bothersome digestive upset (a.k.a. yoga farts. Ok. There we said it).
  7. Please refrain from wearing cologne or any strong scent to class.
  8. Wear appropriate clothes you have worn to yoga practice before.
  9. Keep your immediate area clean; and keep the studio clean.
  10. Stay for savasana – final corpse pose.
  11. Respect the teacher. It's fine to thank them afterwards and let them know what you got out of the class.

Pennington's #iwontcompromise






Don't have props? Most bargain retail stores carry yoga supplies. Or a cotton belt or towel will work as a strap, and a thick blanket or a couple of rolled beach towels will make a bolster.  Tupperware can work as blocks. We will have a very limited number of chairs available at Dianne's workshop for those who need them. Please don’t forget to bring water and a towel.
