Owner, Yoga Therapist, Shihan
Diane has a genuine love for sharing Yoga and Budo having compiled in excess of 2500 teaching hours.
She believes that personal practice and study is vital to being a good teacher.
Having rehabilitated herself from 4 herniated discs, managing endometriosis since her teens and having a full term pregnancy and natural delivery of twins, she is well versed in overcoming chronic pain, nerve damage, autoimmune dysfunction and adapting to change!!
In Yoga Therapy, Diane takes great pride in her ability to deconstruct any pose to suit an individual, how to find comfort in stillness and the value of having a witness for healing.
In Budo, Diane holds the proud title of being the 1st Female 5th Degree Black Belt in KoKoDo JuJutsu in Canada.
She loves to bring her femininity to the primarily male dominated world of martial arts and is constantly inspired to teach other women the arts of personal protection and how to cultivate a 'safety state of mind'.
It is rare to find a teacher who is so accomplished in both arts of healing and self defence.
Sadohana Dojo is owned and operated by Michael and Diane Seamark. They have blended their love for arts, budo and creating a sympatico community while raising their kids together since 1997!
