Yoga is more than connecting the body and mind, Bikram Yoga is also an open-eyed meditation. It’s about creating and sharing energy with the people around us.
In Fall 2016 I attended Bikram’s Teacher Training and taught in Thailand immediately after training was finished.
Since then, I have been teaching wherever I have traveled: Australia, Philippines, Hong Kong, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and here in California – Being Yoga, 2018.
With proper set-up and alignment, magic happens in each posture! I found clarity, headache-free and blood pressure is back to normal.
See you all @ the hot room!
My yoga journey began in 2000 when I stepped into my first Bikram class. Early on in my journey I discovered the practice brought me a feeling of peaceful exhaustion, an amazing feeling I’d lost over the years. Along the way I developed a calmness and awareness which always evaded me. As my practice deepened, I knew I wanted to share the amazing benefits with others. That day finally came, and in 2013 I graduated from Bikram’s Teacher Training in Los Angeles, Ca. Along with my background in bodybuilding & fitness, I’m also certified in Restorative and Vinyasa Yoga.
With my guidance and encouragement, students will learn to get in and out of the postures correctly; they’ll learn to trust themselves, push further, test new waters; they’ll leave class in a yoga bliss.
“Within each one of us exists a warrior and a yogi. A Warrior, who will push through and overcome, who is determined, who will achieve; and A Yogi, who is the most tenderhearted and compassionate being.” Kelli Russell
My journey started more than 25 years ago, the journey of yoga! The results I receive from a routine practice are always beneficial for mind, body and spirit. My teaching or instructional practice started 15 years ago. I do not own what happens in the yoga room, it is a gift that I so humbly receive. My appreciation and gratitude never ceases.
I never tire of watching students (beautiful people) come and do their practice. They inspire me and teach me to teach them. The energy is pure and amazing. Yes, we work the body, but the mind is being disciplined, and there is the beauty and strength of yoga! A lifestyle medicine, helps keep you even. And it is never too late to build the mind and body that you want. You are not stuck with the one you have. Come to Being Yoga and find these benefits for yourself! See you there! Blessings! Diana.

I have practiced yoga since 1988 when I took my first Yoga class at San Jose State University. Since then I have explored many different styles of yoga. I have benefited not only from improved general health in the body, but also the calming and centering of the mind.
I began to think about ways in which yoga can affect a positive change in the world. I decided to begin giving back through participation in Yoga for Hope which is a charity event raising money for cancer and AIDS research.
I decided to go further and deepen my practice in 2014 with a 200hr teacher training with Wanderlust that explored a well rounded and complete look at yoga. I was amazed with how learning so much about yoga philosophy and meditation just made me want to learn more. I continued my studies earning certification in the Hot 26 in October of 2015, and completed my 500-hour advanced yoga teacher training with the Avana school in April of 2017. I continue to study yoga, advancing my teaching toolbox to include Yin in 2018.
I am interested in sharing with the community the connection between breath, mind, and body which brings health and peace of mind.
I continue to keep yoga a dynamic influence in my life by studying Sanskrit, luminous soul and advanced asana training. I love to learn from other teachers and explore all that yoga has to offer us.
Off the mat, I am a wife, mother of three girls, full-time RRT, and student of life.
Nadia Sheibani started practicing yoga 7 years ago. Her journey began with hot yoga (Bikram yoga) when a friend took her to a free Bikram class. The heat was not bearable at first but being a fixed believer of “if there is a will, there is a way” she continued and still does. Nadia discovered other yoga disciplines later and heat and the 26 postures were the foundation of a broader yoga practice and learning. Nadia earned her RYT200 hour certificate with Yoga Source, Los Gatos and started teaching at Being Yoga in 2012.
Nadia is a firm believer that yoga is for everyone regardless of age, body structure or disability, it can be tailored to you and for you. Her teaching is based on foundation, alignment and logic with some fun. All age groups are welcome in her class.
Nadia is registered with Yoga Source, Los Gatos for the 500-hour certificate and continues to teach and learn as the journey of yoga never ends.
