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

Dear friends,

I hope you are all doing well. For many of us, it’s a year of movement and change. I don’t know how you’ve been faring, but for many, this has been a weird start to an odd year. Matthew McCaunaghey, the actor and author of Green Lights, writes that it’s easy to dream about what our lives could be, to plan for that great “someday”... it’s a lot harder to actually take action and make it happen.

I understand what he means. Once we’ve divvied up our time, energy and resources between all of our commitments, our ‘people’ and our to-do’s, we may feel like there’s not a lot of time left for self care. It’s why I feel the retreats I offer each year are a real opportunity to get off the beaten track, to resource, regroup, and renew. It’s an opportunity for you to do you.

Rest is a part of that. So is exercise, fresh air, good food, good sleep and personal growth. Learning about how to manage your nervous system, how to feel good, or better is a part of it, too.

I can help. I love this work and I have tools that you can bring into your lives back home.

Welcome to the Art of Self Care.

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.
