Diana Bourel - Yoga meditation and personal growth in St Barth
yoga meditation and personal growth with Diana Bourel

New in 2022! Art of Self Care will be running group yoga classes at Institut Venus in Gustavia. Semi-private classes (limit 2 students) can also be booked at Excellence des Sens by Christophe Marchesseau at the Cours Vendome. Private classes are booked by appointment only.

WELCOME…BIENVENUE…HOLA

The Art of Self Care is a multi-modal, broad spectrum approach to self care wrapped around a solid core of yoga, meditation, personal growth, healing sessions, life coaching, stress management, mindfulness practices, ocean work and discovery hikes . It is what I call my healing arts.

The yoga I teach and the wellness-based therapies I offer include customized 1-to-1 sessions, private and group instruction in St. Barth or on location, and wellness-purposed travel to specific destinations for exhilarating and transformative spiritual adventure and initiation.

In addition to scheduled workshops and retreats, I create, curate and lead theme-based workshops like the annual St. Barth Summer Camp Yoga Challenge, team-building modules for businesses that can scaled to your needs.
I can also create a built-to-spec wellness programs for your special events here or abroad.

I offer you over 30 years of training, and my personal "10 000" teaching and consulting hours spent improving the physical, mental and emotional registries we as humans experience.
I look forward to putting my life skills and healing arts to work practicing and growing with you.

What People Say

I met Diana 15 years ago in St. Barth where she came highly recommended as a private yoga instructor.  What is unique about Diana is that she intuitively knows exactly what your body needs. Our work together on the mat has translated nicely to our Transpersonal work off the mat.

This is where my path to personal growth really began.

I have travelled around the world to attend Diana’s wellness retreats and I can’t properly express the profound impact she has had on my life

Diana never fails to amaze. She practices a unique integration of yoga, spiritual counseling and mind-body therapy.

She is technically superb. The depth and breath of her knowledge is extraordinary. She knows physical alignment and keeps me safe. She always links the nuts and bolts of the asanas with their spiritual roots. She has brought my yoga practice to a new level.

Diana is a great teacher, both individually and in a group. She is always focused and invariably kind. I love her vibrant personality. As a psychotherapist, I admire her sensitivity and her effectiveness in showing people new ways to think. Diana has been an important influence in my life.

Cela fait maintenant six ou sept ans que mes vacances d’été s’orientent vers l’île de Saint-Barthélemy . Pour moi, l’attrait de cette île, belle et sauvage, outre les amis que je retrouve chaque année, est principalement le yoga camp de Diana Bourel …

Yoga, mais pas seulement !

Méditation, chant, marche, danse, aqua vitalité, conférences, etc.

Tout est prétexte à se connaître mieux, à progresser.

Une opportunité unique de reprendre possession de son corps et de son esprit, de se reconnecter à la nature environnante, et à sa nature propre, de se trouver ou de se retrouver…

dans un esprit de partage et d’amour.

Avec Diana Bourel, fine, intuitive, perspicace, la bienveillance et la joie côtoient les sommets d’une science qu’elle maîtrise avec une grande subtilité. Chacun de ses gestes, chacune de ses paroles, chaque sourire est un enseignement …C’est un bonheur de l’avoir rencontrée et c’est un bonheur chaque fois de la retrouver !

Diana is very committed to her work and always went way beyond her responsibilities to ensure clients satisfaction. She would work with guests even after the sessions, following up to make sure they were comfortable. She is very creative and approaches her work as a way of life, not a job.

She is an artist, ………a life style artist, and understands the importance of people, utilizing her gifts to assist them in living and appreciating life more extensively.

Diana is a professional that anyone or any wellness enterprise looking to evolve from the mundane Spas into truly a holistic and enlightening life changing experiences, would discover to be a perfect match.

I highly recommend Diana and her work.

Diana studied with me for a Kriya Yoga training at Samasati Retreat Center in the rainforest of Costa Rica. She was an attentive and serious student. Since that time we have become friends and have spent time on St. Barth discussing various aspects of healing, which she has a great understanding of. But it is her intuition that sets her apart.

Diana Bourel takes the art of yoga to new levels. She brings her knowledge of dance and music as well as the healing arts to every session.  Her incredible awareness of the emotional state of her clients allows her to create a unique experience in each session, custom-tailored to the client’s need that day. I’ve practiced yoga for many years in many countries and I have found her to be the best of all. She makes her classes into wonderfully unique, growing experiences for her students. On St Barths there is no equal.

When Diana coordinated the Mind, Body and Spirit program for Cap Juluca, Anguilla, and I handled public relations for the hotel, we worked very closely on both independent and group press visits. Understanding what the media wanted, she was always totally cooperative and flexible, giving more than 100% to both the press who participated in the program and also to other hotel guests. Diana always went out of her way to ensure that clients were totally satisfied with the program’s components. In addition, those who participated in her yoga classes almost always remarked that they were the best they’ve experienced.

I first met Diana in 1991 for my first “Coming Home” session after experiencing two traumatic events, losing my life partner and surviving an attack by two Rothweillers.

I remember to this day the depth of this first session with her.

We next met when I moved in July of 1995 to St Barth to manage St-Barth Isle de France (now Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France). The St-Barth Isle de France guests who started with Diana 24 years ago still search her out when they return to St Barth. Diana, who has taught and mentored many of the yoga teachers now giving classes on island, continues to grow as a person, a teacher, a counselor. She is gentle and fiercely loyal , full of compassion and empathy, with the talent to express herself in all the forms she uses to teach.

Love Story for the Nervous System. Chapter 19. Do you remember the childhood tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears? At its essence, it explored balance, and for the 3 bears in question, they all had different individual readings for what felt good. Think of it like the sweet spot on a tennis racket. It’s that place where the ball and the racket, the racket and the player connect. When that connection occurs, the stroke that follows is smooth, effective and satisfying. In situations where you are feeling overloaded, and you are over-stimulated, bring things down on a notch. When you feel listless, it’s time to up stimulate with curiosity, creativity and often, the presence of others . Learning to self-regulate your nervous system has an effect on your psychology and your emotions. It is a self-care tool of immeasurable and lasting value. Notice what you are feeling, when you are feeling it, or even, sometimes, that you’ve blanked out and gone numb. It will let you know what is too much, what is too little and what is just right. Find your sweet spot, Sweetie, it’s there somewhere…

Using water noodles as flotation supports, we work through a range of asana-infused movements. Water resistance & locomotion in a low-gravity
environment provides a joint
friendly cardiovascular workout in the great outdoors. The water element helps us target and improve micro
circulation, combat cellulite
and sculpt and tone muscles as stretching out the myofascial layers.
Meet up in your bathing suit & wear adequate sun protection. Safe for all levels, you can dial the resistance up or down as you need. Hats, sunglasses, goggles are all helpful additions. #aquayogaclass #aquayogatherapy #yogapractice #yogaeveryday #bodypositivemovement #outdoorclass #wellness #watertherapy #stbarth

For the American-Ecuadorian and recently naturalized French woman that I am, Thanksgiving reminds me that I have lived outside of the USA longer than I have lived in it.
Over the years, I have whittled down the holiday to this. Good food, good wine, family and friends and the time to reflect on the people, the relationships, the blessings in my life for which I am constantly grateful.
I celebrate the practice of gratitude, with or without gravy, vegan or fowled, alone or with others. The art of any good self care contains the regular and consistent practice of gratitude.
Exercising the gratitude muscle strengthens the girders of life, makes all the fascia of our life webs slide and glide, keeps us humble, keeps us holy, keeps us looking for the hundreds of miracles that appear alongside the hundreds of challenges that life brings. Sourcing miracles, blessings is more interesting than hunting for truffles. I use my inner map to trace one good act, one kind word to its genesis and marvel at how one event, one meeting connects to another and yet another....
So, when I tell you that I am grateful for you, that I appreciate you and who you are and what you do , I am only the tip of the iceberg. Gratitude doesn’t start or end with me or you. You’d have to go way back to hear the voices of my ancestors and my family tree all whispering the teachings, all flexing the muscle, all practicing the gratitude that emanates from me today. In appreciating you, I am thanking your ancestors, too. We are all related. May You all Have a Wonderfull DaY 🎈#practicegratitude #givingthanks #appreciatinglife #appreciatingaddsvalue #meditation
