DANIEL ISLAND YOGA
DIANE ZALKA, E-RYT500
As a Yoga Instructor in Charleston, my intention is to assist your mind, body and spirit connect and develop through a personalized practice of pranayama and asana. My classes focus on Gentle Flow, Yin and Restorative practice. I also provide private sessions for those interested in focusing on their own intentions or special needs, as well as Restorative and PreNatal extended sessions. Are you ready to make a positive change in your lifestyle?
ABOUT MY PRACTICE
A Life of Balance
I have been teaching yoga since 2003. My Yoga Alliance Certified (E-RYT500) training with Asheville Yoga Center has been the foundation of my practice. This foundation combines the physical with an inner emotional and spiritual journey. By integrating body, breath, movement, and meditative awareness, I strive to promote an understanding of the interdependency of all these aspects in personal health and well-being.
Inhale. Exhale. Repeat.
BEGIN THE JOURNEY
Improving well-being is more than just a fitness decision, it’s a lifestyle commitment. My classes and private sessions provide an excellent opportunity to stretch your body and mind, but they’re also places to meet and share with other engaged and open-minded individuals. Check out my offerings of services and programs and join my community today.
"I recently took a Gentle Flow class with Diane. From the first hello, she was warm and accepting. Her demeanor and instructions during class resonated with me as soothing, supportive and nurturing. The pace of movement and insightful words she chose led me gently into a very relaxed, calm and centered state of mind. During class, the realization came to me that this is truly an hour offered to me for self love, encouraging the health and well-being of both my body and my mind. I left the class feeling more in tune with my body and myself. I recommend this class in order to enjoy the benefits of yoga both physically and emotionally." ~ Cheryl Ulissi
My Home Studio Space
Private sessions are based on the belief that mental and physical health are interrelated, and should be conditioned together. Private sessions at Daniel Island Yoga with Diane will meet your personal needs from where you are and encourage you to take the journey into your own practice. If you have any physical needs, I will assist you in modifications; if you want to extend your practice, I will encourage you. The personalized practice will coordinate breathing and physical movement, improve focus and concentration, and help participants regain control of their body and mind.
Classes for Every Body
YOGA FOR BEGINNERS
Gentle Flow offers an opportunity to renew and refresh while following simple asana flows and breathing patterns. Flow helps build an awareness between the three elements of body, mind and breath. This flow centers around control and precision, with a diversity of asanas and modifications to suit a range of levels from beginner to advanced.
Yin allows the body to open and relax within the postures enabling peace of mind and the ability to settle into the stillness.
Restorative provides a safe space with props and assistance to renew your mind and body.
Two Hours of Bolster Bliss
SEASONAL CHAKRA BALANCING
This 2-hour session focuses on Chakra Balancing with a series of supported restorative poses that calm the central nervous system. When we calm the mind and body, we give our body permission to be enriched. As we move through each of the Chakras using imagery, color therapy, readings, gentle movement, mindful breathing, we can become meditative. This session creates a feeling of peace and bliss within your body and mind. Who doesn't need that!
No experience is necessary. Groups of 4 or more at my home studio.
Each month I offer classes focusing on special areas. The monthly specialty classes rotate and include:
Hips and Shoulder Release
Pranayama and Meditation
Flow and Stretch
"Care deeply, give freely, think kindly, act gently, and be at peace with the world."

My mission is to guide students on their journey to find the benefits of yoga asana and pranayama. By encouraging them to breathe and feel as they find their physical strength and inner peace, the beauty of a yoga practice emerges. I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental environment for all to observe life in the present moment...finding the connection between their body, mind and spirit.
I look forward to hearing from you!
