Pilate’s Instructor, Certified Health Coach Photos by DanAmezcua, instagram @danamezcua Clothing provided by Lorna Jane, Malibu Lumber Yard "The focus of my practice is CARING... and helping people reach their goals." Through many years of teaching in the Malibu community, Diana's practice inside the Malibu Health Club, branded as "Malibu Beach Pilates", there's been a significant and diverse clientele that includes long time Malibu residents, top recording artists & celebrities... people from outside the community, some visiting and many from referrals, including those from local physicians who are aware of Diana's extensive, broad range of training. A true master in her body of work that stands out through a unique ability to recognize individual needs, as no two bodies are the same. Recognizing the individual is one of the elements that sets her practice apart. "People say life is short so enjoy yourself... don't let that fool you. I say life is long so we have to take care of our bodies. It's important that we feel comfortable in it, strong and healthy over time." Expanding the broad range of influence through multiple Pilate's protocols, Diana is also a graduate of "The Institute For Integrative Nutrition", which incorporates a diversity of skills associated with being a Certified Health Coach. In her classes and individual sessions there's a spirit of working together to best define and achieve goals, including a focus on nutrition. "Joseph Pilates created a body of work that is much more than a repertoire of exercise, and had he lived, the work would have evolved with him... As a Pilate's instructor I feel it is a responsibility to evolve his work, as well as my own." Diana's Pilate's training comes from many recognized masters. As well, her unique practice is strengthened through broad range of ongoing and diverse studies, including over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques and innovative coaching methods with some of the world's top health and wellness experts including, Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University's Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willet, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and authorities across a wide range of protocols. No gimmicks here; with attention to all aspects of your life, fitness, health, and dietary needs. The whole picture... A comprehensive approach to a healthier lifestyle, achieving landmarks of core strength, bio-individuality and what fuels and strengthens your body. Actress/Model Stacy Lobb, @staylopriebz
