Diana & John Vitarelli co-own and operate Dhyana Yoga out of their cozy home in the little town of Morrisville, PA, just outside of Philadelphia. Diana was born in Chester, PA and John in Camden, NJ, so they share not only an Italian heritage but also a hard working approach to life.
Diana started practicing in 1989 and teaching 7 years later, and John started practicing in the early 90′s and began teaching in 2004. They have both graduated from Tim Miller’s Ashtanga Teacher Training, and John continues to study Ashtanga with Tim, plus with his teacher David Garrigues here in Philadelphia. Diana, AKA “Dhyana,” is also certified in Kundalini Yoga, Primordial Sound Meditation, and Ayurveda. They were married on Guru Purnima in July of 2010 and welcomed their sweet daughter, Raine, into the world in April 2012. They love Yoga, travel, their dogs, hanging out together, teaching, singing along with the harmonium, and the indescribable feeling of collapsing into Savasana after a great practice! John teaches Vinyasa in the Ashtanga style and Led Primary classes and heads up DY’s renowned Teacher Certification Program. Diana teaches Vinyasa in the Ashtanga style and specialized workshops in Primordial Sound Meditation and Ayurveda, and she is also an Organic Skincare Specialist (learn more here). Their overall motto is, as the Italians say, “Tutto fa brodo!” or, “Everything makes Broth!” This resonates for John, who is also a trained chef, and reminds them both that life, family, friends, study, asana, business, relationships, food, travel, EVERYLITTLETHING, be it challenging or a breeze, goes into the quantum soup of life and when it all boils down… Va Bene! It’s all good!
