Diana Sophia Virissimo Owner
E-RYT 500, YACEP, Fitness Coach, & Reiki Master
My yoga journey began in 2008, after a bad neck and back injury from a car accident. At that time, I was looking for ways to help remedy the pain and learned about the benefits of yoga. After practicing yoga for 3 weeks, the pain went away and I was hooked. Yoga not only enhanced my flexibility and strength, it also nurtured my spirituality, compassion, and happiness. This experience changed my life and gave me a new sense of purpose: to become an instructor and share this healing gift with others.
I received my 200-hour certification in 2012, during which time I attended multiple trainings to learn how to teach different formats so as to broaden my knowledge and reach all types of audiences. Vinyasa, yin, sculpt, hatha, bootcamp, mommy & me yoga, restorative yoga, gentle yoga, barre, and reiki are just a few of the many formats of health and fitness that I have certifications and experience in.
Words of encouragement and inspiration are a staple in my classes. My goal is to leave you as excited and passionate about yoga as I am, while feeling motivated and challenged in your practice.
