“I consulted Diana Zotos for some chronic aches and pains. During my sessions with her she was able to zero in on the postural and movement habits I had developed that were causing the pains, and showed me how to reorganize my habits of sitting, standing, and walking, so that with simple adjustments my pains rapidly diminished.
As followup, I started following Diana’s on-line exercise lessons. These lessons are detailed and yet easy to follow and have definitely led to increased flexibility and strength. They also served as a yoga refresher, so that I feel more confident when I occasionally go to a class, even though I don’t go regularly. This treatment program was definitely worth the effort and has given me a set of skills which will be of lifelong use to me.”

Yoga is a 2000 year-old tradition that combines asanas or postures with focused breathing and mindfulness. It has the power to connect your mind and body while balancing relaxation with physical exertion.
Physiotherapy is rehabilitation medicine used for treating physical injuries, impairments and disabilities with the goal of restoring optimal function. Physical therapists perform thorough evaluations and design customized treatment programs, which are typically comprised of therapeutic exercises, hands-on techniques and other treatment modalities.
As a trained yoga instructor and physiotherapist, I often find the best path to rehabilitation is through a combination of the two mediums.
Physiyoga is an innovative healing strategy that combines the hands-on qualities of a skilled physiotherapist with the holistic movement therapy of yoga to provide a comprehensive, integrated approach to healing and continued healthy living.
