Diana Selnau

Yoga Teacher & Sound Healer

Yoga is not just a practice for me; it is a way of life that unites the body, mind, and soul to promote a healthy and happy existence. Since my training in 2005, I have been teaching Yoga with great passion and dedication. Over the years, I have gained experience in various studios, fitness centers, and retreats, working with diverse groups, including beginners, pregnant women, and seniors.

My teaching philosophy is grounded in the belief that Yoga should be accessible to everyone. I design my classes to offer both challenges and opportunities for mindfulness and self-reflection. I strive to encourage my students to discover their own practice, explore their limits, and approach themselves with compassion.

In addition to my expertise in Vinyasa, Ashtanga, and Hatha Yoga, I have also developed special skills in Pranayama, Meditation, and Sound Bowl Therapy. These techniques blend seamlessly into my classes, providing my students with a holistic Yoga experience. Diana is proficient in German, English, and Spanish.

She has also been teaching and leading meditation classes for over 15 years and practicing as an Ayurvedic Partitioner in India, Dubai and the UK since more than two decates. Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world’s oldest medical systems and remains one of India’s traditional health care systems. Ayurvedic treatment combines products (mainly derived from plants, but may also include animal, metal, and mineral), diet, exercise, and lifestyle. The concepts of universal interconnectedness, the body’s constitution (prakriti), and life forces (doshas) are the primary basis of ayurvedic medicine. Goals of treatment aid the person by eliminating impurities, reducing symptoms, increasing resistance to disease, reducing worry, and increasing harmony in life. Maya speaks, English & Hindi.

Health and Wellbeing comes from within!

Happiness is the new rich. Inner peace is the new success & health the new wealth. Kindness is the new cool.

Your mind, emotions and body are instruments and the way you align and tune them determines how well you play life.

Unvergesslich und tiefgreifend diese paar Tage in Istrien. Ich habe so viel über mich und die physikalischen & emotionalen Energien erfahren, dass ich heute meinen Alltag mit leichteren und schmunzelnden Augen betrachten kann, was mir Frieden und Gelassen-heit beschwert. Der Mix aus Leuten war köstlich amüsant und das Essen spitzenklasse – ganz zu schweigen von der traumhaften Landschaft. TOP!

Yanara Adel

Thank you for a wonderful week shared with wonderful people and for your help and support and deepening us in the beautiful mystery of Istria. We have all been so blessed by revisiting a subject we thought we knew all about. Once more a perfect place for our holistic retreat. Thank you for feeding our hearts and minds. This was our first Retreat but I’m sure we will return.

George Frey

Als Berater habe ich schon viele Coaches, Seminar & Workshop kennen gelernt – aber keines war so ausgeglichen und ausbalanciert. Das Team jonglierte die Inhalte und Programmpunkte auf einem Niveau, dass setzt Interesse und Freude einherging. Es ist für jeden was dabei, egal ob du aus der WestMedizin, oder Holistischen Medizin kommst oder du ein spiritueller Arbeiter bist oder einzig und allein um deinen persönlichen Wachstum bemüht bist. EMPFEHLENSWERT!

As soon as you honor the present moment, unhappiness and struggles dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease.
