Dianne Bondy

Hi, I am Dianne Bondy RYT 500. I have been practising yoga in a more substantial body for most of my life. I designed a course around what I have learned through 45 years of practising and 30 years of teaching. I want to share with you my work called Bridging the Divide. This course is about making yoga spaces inclusive, diverse and safe for all bodies. I have created a mini-course which is a peek into how to make your classes or your personal practice more customized to fit your body and for teachers to support their students. We are working together to create a safe and body-positive experience for all. My intention in this course is to help students and teachers customise their practice to support their abilities. Bridging the Divide is about helping you make peace with your body through the practice of yoga. I want to help you get stronger, feel comfortable and served on your yoga mat.
