Diana ‘Dina’ Sheldon

What is your position on the “yoga as spiritual practice, yoga as body shaper” spectrum?

Yoga is what you make it. The practice is embodied in the body, mind, emotion, and spirit. It's not a forced practice but rather an absorbed practice. If you practice to shape your body, you may find less stress is a by-product, which in turns affects your spirit in living more joyfully. This infinity loops to create optimal long-term health.

In a class full of students with different goals, how do the teachers at A2 keep everyone engaged and motivated? 

Each class is taught as an individual class. Therefore, each student’s experience affects the ‘energy’ of the class. For example: tone of voice, sequence of poses, use of props, speed of class, verbal vs. manual adjustments, music or no music. We encourage students to try new things, attend different classes and types of yoga based on their needs, schedules, and abilities. It allows for a diverse practice that ebbs and flows like life. 

What is your go-to pose and why?

My go to pose (asana) is "Tree Pose" or Vrksasana. I really enjoy the challenges of this pose and the grace once in the pose. The pose is standing on one leg with the second leg bent at an angle with the foot touching the standing leg. The arms are extended with shoulders down, above the head. The strength of the pose comes from the abdominal muscles supporting the spine, attention to balancing while reaching for the sky and dropping the shoulder blades without puffing the chest like a peacock.
