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!

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.
