The Mind-Body Connection

And now for something completely different.

Step back for a moment and think about the level of tension you may be habitually carrying around in your body. The best presentation skills in the world won't serve you if you're feeling too tense and pressured to connect internally and to get yourself centered. And if you're not centered and connected to your own energy, it's much, much harder to connect to your audience.

From NIH (National Institute for Health) research to CDC (Centre for Disease Control) funded studies, multiple findings all show the importance of the mind/body connection in stress management.

No, you can't eliminate workplace stress. Yes, you can create opportunities to feel 100 times healthier and more alive.

How? Bring a new kind of workshop into your workplace or to your next conference or off-site and help participants...

  • Loosen up
  • Lighten up
  • De-stress
  • Laugh
  • Relax
  • Sweat
  • Move
  • Stretch
  • Energize
  • Bond
  • Create camaraderie
  • Foster teamwork

As a long-time yoga practitioner, former dancer and certified Kripalu DansKinetics teacher, I invite you to share in this unique workshop.

Developed at Kripalu in Massachusetts (the largest yoga health centre in the U.S.), DansKinetics is a facilitated series of playful and joyous moves. It is done to a background mix of customized music, reflecting your group's tastes and demographics. But the best news is, absolutely NO experience is necessary and it works for everyBODY. You just bring your tired, stress-bound, uncoordinated, out-of-shape self to the workshop and one and a half hours later you'll feel better than you have in ages...guaranteed! It's a physical wake-up, warm-up, and cool-down all rolled into one.

I specialize in facilitating a completely user-friendly experience: you are never put on the spot, you do only what you're comfortable doing, and we're all in it together.

In groups of 10 to 100 or more, we cavort and shake off the tensions that rob us of our vibrancy and authenticity. Join the growing ranks of professionals who understand that we bring "all of us" to our communications. And integrating our mind/body connection means more focus on the "body" to bring balance to our overworked minds. So clear your heads, get physical and take a leap of faith in trying something new. You may just find this is what you've been looking for!

p.s. This workshop is best experienced in loose clothing, sweats, or comfortable exercise gear. Leave the ties, belts and high heels at the office.


"I was as surprised as anyone to be one of seventy-odd financial analysts and portfolio managers boogying around the conference space at our off-site. But I can honestly say it set the tone for one of the best days of workshops. I'm glad Diane had the courage to push us out of our communication comfort zone. As a result, we left some of our analytical skepticism behind and opened up to more creative approaches."
