Yoga, Health and Wellness Education

Claire Diab Founder and Lead Educator AYA

The Essence of Yoga is about living a balanced life. I’ve always said if you want to learn something, learn how to teach it. Over the last 30 years, my yoga teacher training has been empowering people to help others.  As a result of these training courses, students teach Health & Wellness Education and become Life Coaches.

I am so honored to be with you.  Since there are no accidents or coincidences in life, a whole series of events conspired to bring us together in this place at this time.

Our Dharma (purpose in life) is to serve, love, help and guide others.  As a yoga teacher you will have the opportunity to build your students sense of well-being and reduce stress and dis-ease.

I would be honored to be your teacher through this wonderful process.  Yoga is more than being a confident teacher of poses. You will learn how to integrate the whole philosophy of yoga, mindfulness based stress reduction, meditation and relaxation techniques. Guiding others with your teaching skills to live yoga both on and off the mat helps create a happy balanced life.

I wholeheartedly believe that you deserve the freedom to create in your own way. I integrate different styles of yoga into the curriculum. Whether it is chair yoga for corporations and seniors, restorative or vinyasa yoga you will have a firm understanding of the various styles. With variations for each pose, experience the comfort of teaching Yoga For Everyone, regardless of their age, shape, size, or physical ability.

Let me be your guide as you give yourself the gift of yoga. Knowledge, enlightenment, union – This is more than a course. It is an experience.  Welcome!
