Diana Gradstein, founder, owner, teacher and loving operator of The Mobile Mat has this to say about herself, history and practice:

I have been active all of my life.  I love to sweat work hard and yet, feel balanced and confident at the same time.  In 2007 I fell in love with yoga, inspiring me to enroll in my first 200-hour teacher training in Eugene, Oregon. In 2011, I continued my yoga training in the Bay Area, completing my second 200-hour training. I’m trained and certified in Vinyasa Flow, Hot Power Yoga and Yoga for At-Risk Youth. I have also completed numerous specialty workshops, including pre and postnatal yoga, as well as yoga for seniors.

I am grateful every time I am able to step onto my yoga mat. Yoga allows me to calm my mind, feel connected to my physical body and push myself in a healthy way. When I am on my mat, I find a presence and a calm.  I allow myself to relax and just BE. Yoga has brought so much clarity to my life, in mind, body and soul. I love knowing yoga is a continual practice, and I am always discovering something new on my mat.”
