Rheannon is an experienced, registered and certified yoga instructor (E-RYT500).

She received her initial 200 hour training through Lotus Gardens Yoga School in 2017, and in 2021 she completed a 300 hour teacher training through Tibet House US & Menla’s Vajra Yoga training under the tutelage of Dr. Robert A.F. Thurman, Dr. Nida Chenagtsang, Michele Loew. Richard Freeman, & Mary Taylor.

Her classes blend classical Hatha and Ashtanga sequencing with meditation techniques to inspire the wish to deliberately create the most meaningful life possible for oneself and for others.

She has had the honor of teaching in a variety of settings from local studios and gyms to Forbes 5 Star & Relais & Chateaux resorts and spas.

Rheannon is committed to remaining a life long learner in order to better serve those around her. In 2020, she received a SEE Learning™ certification;  a K-12 education program for Social, Emotional, and Ethical  learning created by Emory University in collaboration with  His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
She is currently studying with Lama Tsultrim Allione, completing her "Wisdom Rising, Journey into the Mandala of the Empowered Feminine" course.

In creating Diamond Yoga School, Rheannon's hope is to inspire each trainee to dive deeper into their yogic practices and emerge feeling ready to share their knowledge, skill and passion with others.

Gus is an experienced, registered and certified yoga instructor (E-RYT200).

In 2017, he studied Classical Sanatan Yoga at the Nepal Yoga Academy under the guidance of Guruji Dr. Chintimani Gautam.

His classical approach is as outlined in the traditional texts of the Hatha Pradipika, Gheranda, and Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.

Gus also has a background in recording and performing arts. This helped to nurture his deep interest in mantra and chanting.

He encourages students to increase flexibility and strength – physically, emotionally, and mentally.

In creating Diamond Yoga School, Gus looks forward to sharing his experience of learning yogic tradition from the East and blending it with Western yogic practices.
