Hi, I’m Dianne Bondy. I’m not a superstar yoga teacher. I don’t travel the world teaching yoga. I’ve never been to India and I will most likely never be on the cover of Yoga Journal.
I do own and operate a local yoga studio, train new teachers, run retreats, and maintain a strong personal practice. I’ve spent way more on Yoga training than I would like my husband to know. .
I love yoga. But I got tired of feeling out of place in the super skinny and flexible yoga world. That’s why I created Yogasteya.com.
Now, we all know yoga has plenty of benefits.
Yes, Yoga can help improve the looks of your body, – but it’s so much more.
Yoga makes you more aware of your body, improving your posture, strengthening your back and core, adding grace and fluiditity to your movements.
Yoga is a huge immune booster. That means tipping the odds in your favor of a long HEALTHY life.
Yoga helps you deal with stress more effectively.
Yoga makes you more productive. Increased Energy + Mental Clarity = More Life
You’ll Notice the Physical Benefits First, You‘ll Feel Stronger, Your Clothes will Fit Better.
Then Your Friends will Start to Notice. They Might Ask Why You’re Smiling so Much, or Why You Seem so Much Happier.
Yoga helps you focus on the present moment. This gives you greater clarity and the allows you to focus on the important things in life. With this comes a deeper, fuller life. I have seen this in myself, my teachers and my students.
Since I’ve begun this journey of making yoga more available to differing body types, I have met many like minded teachers. You can practice with them here.

I was beyond excited when you announced that you would be launching an online studio. I started back up at school, and between school, homework, my son and general life, it doesn’t leave me much time to get to the studio, so I am absolutely ecstatic that I now can have your classes online in my living room!!!
~ I. Exaltacion, Windsor ON
I thoroughly enjoyed waking up this morning with the beautiful and bendy Amy and your sweet voice Dianne! I Missed you and now I can have you even at this crazy hour of the day! Great class to start my day with, Can’t wait to try more! Thank you
