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.

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 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.

HISTOIRES D’AMOUR POUR LE SYSTÈME NERVEUX. Chapitre 11.
Lorsque je me demande comment trouver la manière et le pouvoir de faire une différence significative dans ce monde, je trouve grande inspiration dans la bénédiction Burning Man du Dean Brian Baker.
Je ne suis jamais allée à Burning Man, mais j'ai des amis et de la famille qui l'ont fait.
Une fois par an, des dizaines de milliers de personnes se rassemblent à Black Rock City pour créer une ville éphémère dans le désert du Nevada entièrement dédiée à la créativité, à l'art, à l'expression de soi et à l’autonomie radicale.
Les brûleurs rentrent chez eux transformés, profondément changés, émerveillés comme sans doute je me sens quand je reviens d'Amazonie après avoir travaillé avec la médecine des plantes sacrées.
Burning Man est une expérience sociale incroyable et libérale où tout et n'importe quoi se passe. Soit, ce n'est pas un lieu de rencontre typique pour les prêtres. Et pourtant, c'est là que Dean Brian Baker, prêtre épiscopal, défenseur de la justice sociale, père, mari, vétéran, diplômé de West Point et ancien leader de la cathédrale Trinity de Sacramento a prononcé sa bénédiction si incroyablement puissante.
La bénédiction est une pratique. C'est souhaiter bonne chance à quelqu'un, voir l'humanité en soi et en lui. C'est honorer les morceaux brisés et la lumière brillante de chacun et le paradoxe et la complexité de nos vies incroyablement complexes et liés.
Si vous cherchez votre super pouvoir ou votre baguette magique, je vous encourage vraiment à relever le défi de cet homme. Choisir l'amour. Choisir l'amour tous les jours, le donner et le recevoir parce que nous le pouvons. Choisirl'amour plutôt que le jugement, choisir l'amour plutôt que la critique, choisir l'amour plutôt que d'avoir raison à tout prix, ou la honte ou le blâme. Votre système nerveux vous en remerciera et le monde en sera sûrement meilleur.
Commencez à pratiquer !

LOVE STORY FOR THE NERVOUS SYSTEM. Chapter 11. When wondering how to find the agency & power to make a meaningful difference in this world,
I find inspiration in Dean Brian Baker’s Burning Man blessing.
I’ve never been to Burning Man, but have had friends and family who have.
Once a year, tens of thousands of people gather in Black Rock City to create a pop-up tent city in the Nevada desert
completely dedicated to creativity, art,
self-expression & self-reliance.
Burners come home transformed, deeply changed, awed & jazzed in the way that I do when I come back
from the Amazon after working with the sacred plant medicine.
Burning Man is an incredible, liberal social experiment where anything & everything goes.
It’s not a typical hang out for men of the cloth.
And yet, this is where Dean Brian Baker,
an Episcopal priest, social justice advocate, father, husband, veteran, West Point graduate and the former cathedral dean of Sacramento’s Trinity Cathedral delivered his stupendously powerful blessing.
Blessing is a thing. It’s a practice. It’s wishing someone well, seeing the humanity in yourself
and in them.
It’s honoring the broken pieces and the shining light and the paradox and the complexity of our incredibly intricate lives.
If you’ve been looking for your super power or magic wand,
I really encourage you to take him up on the challenge.
To choose love. To keep choosing it. To choose love every damn day, to give it and to receive it because we can.
Choose love over judgement , choose love over criticism, choose love over being right, or shame or blame.
Your nervous system will thank you for it and the world will surely be a better place for it.
Start practicing !

Aqua Yoga with Diana.
Lundi-Mercredi-Vendredi
11h30- plage de St Jean Nikki Beach.
Great class for families or groups practicing together.
A series of conditioning exercises take Asana principles into water, where with the help
of floaters, water resistance and proper positioning, we strengthen core muscles,
through locomotion and static exercises,
alternate cardiovascular conditioning `
and strength training with a yogic awareness. Improve micro circulation, combat cellulite
and tone your entire body, while enjoying the outdoors.
Aqua Yoga is excellent if you are recovering from surgery, or contending with mobility restrictions that require
effective reduced impact activity. Please come in bathing suit and bring towels, water goggles (optional),
and a good supply of sun screen, water hats and sun glasses.

HISTOIRES D’AMOUR POUR LE SYSTÈME NERVEUX. Chapitre 9. En repensant à votre vie, quels sont les moments les meilleurs et les plus heureux que vous ayez vécus ?
Combien d'entre eux comprenaient d'autres êtres humains ou animaux ?
Le système nerveux autonome est équipé d’un circuit modern qui assure cet engagement social.
Le sentiment d’être juste bien, ouvre tout un monde de possibilités.
Le sentiment de sécurité est un ingrédient essentiel dans notre capacité à lâcher prise
et à être nous même de manière authentique.
En l'absence de danger ou de menace, ce nouveau circuit nous permet de vivre toute la gamme des émotions humaines agréables et d’intimité avec les autres.
Il se lit dans le regard, dans la voix, dans la respiration, dans le mouvement et la posture.
Il est palpable. Tout comme quand nous nous sentons menacé.
Je vous encourage à rechercher les lieux et les visages avec lesquels vous vous sentez en sécurité.
Ceci libère la tension et vous permet de vous détendre, de vous amuser.
Vous verrez alors fleurir tas de belles choses en vous et dans votre entourage.

LOVE STORY FOR THE NERVOUS SYSTEM. Chapter 9. Looking back on your life, what are some of the best and happiest moments you've experienced?
How many of them included other human beings or animals?
The autonomic nervous system is equipped with a modern circuit that ensures this social engagement.
Feeling just right opens up a whole world of possibilities.
A sense of security is an essential ingredient in our ability to let go and be ourselves authentically.
In the absence of danger or threat, this new circuit allows us to experience the full range
of pleasurable human emotions and intimacy with others.
It can be felt in the gaze, in the voice, in the breath, in movement and posture.
It is tangible. Feeling good is tangible. It’s fluid and easy, relaxed and fun.
Feeling threatened also has its own body language.
You will see a lot of beautiful things bloom in you and in your surroundings when you embody your sense of safety.
