Went for a self defence class here and it was great. They taught useful skills that anyone can do and worked within the physical capacity of the people participating. They kept a small class size and went around the room to ensure people were doing the techniques properly so we could learn with individual direction during practice. 10/10 recommend.

Thank you- Diana, Alex and Kyle for taking the time to educate us all today. It was absolutely brilliant, thank you all, from the bottom of my heart. I am a survivor of sexual and physical assaults and as a result I pursued and achieved my black belt in Karate. Despite my own martial arts education, I still learned so much from you today. You addressed specific techniques that were used to attack me, so I know from personal experience that this class gave every participant a fighting chance. Especially for those who are inspired to keep learning, you have changed (and potentially saved) lives today. ~ Sarah McGuire
BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
Satori Wellness Studio is a warm and inviting space, and Diana is an uplifter. She is generous with her knowledge and her time and tries hard to help people have positive experiences in her classes.
I take her women's Brazilian jiu jitsu classes twice a week and like how thorough she is in her teaching. She demonstrates techniques over and over again to make sure that we understand them either before we start or while we try them. She also modifies techniques for people who come in injured so that they can still make the most of their training.
Seriously, Diana is great! Go see her! ~ Jennifer Holland
Joined women's BJJ in 2021 just as a hobby and in turn, gained a whole community! The best part of my week :) Professor Diana also offers kids' classes, self-defense courses, and opens the studio for weekly yoga. ~ S.G.
YOGA, MEDITATION CLASSES
Diana is my yoga instructor and my children's yoga/jiu-jitsu instructor. Her energy is amazing; she brings so much thoughtfulness and perspective to each class she teaches. She is very knowledgeable and articulates herself well. My children and myself, always leave feeling energized, from her classes. I highly recommend her services! ~ Nicole Rupprecht
I've taken meditation and mindfulness classes and have left feeling refocused and relaxed. Diana is so thoughtful that, after a learn-to-meditate class, she sent a follow-up email outlining the meditation steps that we went through...just so that we could practice on our own. She even brought tea for her students to drink before another session! ~ J.H.
YOGA PLAYSCHOOL / PRESCHOOL
"Miss Diana is just so darn great :) My son loves going to her yoga play school. It has been a great experience so far, and an awesome introduction to 'school' for my energetic son. It seems like they do so many ACTIVE activities from yoga in the classroom, exploring the garden, scavenger hunts around the community centre or having fun on the playground. As a teacher myself, I like seeing all the child made crafts coming home, and hearing about the Waldorf and Montessori inspired learning opportunities they are doing in their close knit little group. Communication with Miss Diana has always been great and she's been so helpful in transitioning my sensitive little guy into the time away from home. She is always so positive and warm to the children :)
The yoga play school has been a great experience for our family so far. Miss Diana has made the transition from home to school very positive and easy! Its so nice knowing my child is in such good hands :)" ~Amanda B.M.
"I cannot say enough about the Yoga Playschool. My son absolutely loves attending and talks about his new friends and Miss Diana often throughout the week. It's a wonderful outlet for my highly sensitive yet extremely energetic son. His energy is welcomed and it's always a positive experience for him." ~Taunya I.
SATORI NATURAL HAND-CRAFTED BODY PRODUCTS
"I am a kindergarten teacher and am exposed to many viruses daily. I usually get bad colds and lose my voice several times a year. Since I started using the Immuno-logical mist (2x/day) I have not had either and have not missed a day of work due to illness. It works for me!! I love that it smells great and that is probably why I used it regularly in the beginning. Now, I use it all the time because it works!" ~ Marguerite F.
"Diana made two custom scents for our studio (Hive Fit Co) and we absolutely love them. Our clients can't stop asking what is in them and where we got them from. I let her know what we had in mind and she created them better than I imagined. I would highly recommend her services." ~ Bre B.
Great experience. More relaxed than I've ever felt. Will definitely go back for more.
~ Corey Dyke
I've honestly had quite a few massages and Diana is better than all of them. Even for someone a little thicker who needs a ton of pressure like myself. Shiatsu seems to hit all the right spots! ~ C.H.
"Throughout the entire experience Diana illustrated the highest amount of professionalism while Semra worked towards delivering our precious baby boy. She was the glue that held us together during 34 hours of labor and worked with the medical staff without overstepping her boundaries. I was extremely impressed with her compassionate character and ability to help in what seemed overwhelming at times. Diana is an amazing person and I would recommend her as a Doula to anyone who is looking at having a child." ~ Colin T.
"I feel so blessed to have had Diana by my side for Brody's birth. She was my support, my friend, my rock. Whenever I was afraid, I looked for her. I knew she would have the right things to say or the right touch. She took care of Colin so he could take care of me. I will always be grateful and she'll always have a special place in my heart and with my family." ~ Semra B.
"Diana was extremely attentive and knowledgeable. She was such a helpful and calming presence in the the room." ~ Sara C.
"Diana was such a wonderful advocate for her patient; even when it came down to the tiny details of just asking for clarity on aspects of procedures, to make sure that the patient was comfortable moving forward." ~ Heather W.
