Mindfulness is simply allowing yourself to be where you are and as you are, right now, in the present moment, without judgment. We call this moment-to-moment awareness mindfulness. It is about being awake and aware - living in the present rather than dwelling in the past or anticipating the future. Mindfulness is not something that you have to "get" or acquire. It is a natural human-capacity, a power resource you can become familiar with and harness for coping, growth, and moving towards greater levels of health and well-being.
Mindful Living Studio is a private studio nestled among the sights and sounds of nature. All are invited to participate in program and service offerings.

Read Diane's bio.
"The term Yoga itself means to unite, combine, harmonize or integrate. A truly yogic approach is inherently an integrative approach, harmonizing body, prana, senses, mind and consciousness. It cannot be reduced to the body alone. A yogic approach to healing is not a specialization or a side-line technique but requires a synthesis of all levels and aspects of healing. That is why classical Yoga has an eightfold approach from life-style practices and values through asana, pranayama to samadhi. If we reduce Yoga to asana, we are not practicing Yoga or an integrative approach but falling into the same trap of mainly focusing on the outer material reality and losing track of the inner reality of prana, mind and consciousness."
~ David Frawley
"The one aim of this Yoga is an inner self-development by which each one who follows it can in time discover the One Self in all and evolve a higher consciousness than the mental, a spiritual and supramental consciousness which will transform and divinize human nature."

"Vessel Yoga" draws from my 40+ year study of yoga rooted primarily in Kripalu Yoga and the Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo. Read more...
Note: All MindBody Health and Mindful Living Studio programs including executive coaching, life style counseling, all private and group sessions are educational and do not treat pathology. Our programs help you design and live a balanced, healthy and fulfilling life. While this approach can help you get things done and achieve your goals, our programs are rooted in mindfulness practices that cultivate acceptance of what has been and what is as we move towards skillfulness without creating more imbalances. You may achieve goals; however, with Mindful Awareness you are engaged, creative and energized rather than depleted.
