About Dianne Cecchett
For Dianne Cecchett yoga was a natural transition from her dance studies. Dianne began studying classical ballet when she was 15 years old and was fortunate to take classes with Nicholas Petrov, founder of the Pittsburgh Ballet Company as well as Jean Gideon, present Artistic Director for Pittsburgh Youth Ballet. In 1984 Dianne realized that her dancing was becoming too grueling for her body, and she sought a more healing modality which led her to yoga. She completed her 200 hour teacher’s yoga certification in 2010 through Kula Shala Yoga Center, Jupiter, Florida where she was taught components of both Hatha and Yin Yoga. She began teaching Silent Yin in 2014, which is a specialty yin class she learned from Norman Blair, a Yin and Ashtanga teacher in the United Kingdom. Dianne continues her studies with James Brown of American Yoga School. She sees all yoga as a refuge and vehicle for self-study. Her past teachers are Jaye Bryan, Scott Feinberg, Tasha Patterson Shirley, Gary Hirschman, and Sarah Powers. She graduated from California University, California, Pennsylvania with a BA in Social Work and continued her studies for an additional year at Heartland Community College, Normal, Illinois, with an emphasis on anatomy. Dianne’s classes are warm and inviting, fostering a calming and centering environment.

The benefits of yoga are recognized by the American Osteopathic Association. Below is an excerpt from the Association’s website.
“As an osteopathic physician, I focus a lot of my efforts on preventive medicine and practices, and in the body’s ability to heal itself,” says Dr. Nevins. “Yoga is a great tool for staying healthy because it is based on similar principles.”
“The relaxation techniques incorporated in yoga can lessen chronic pain, such as lower back pain, arthritis, headaches and carpal tunnel syndrome,” explains Dr. Nevins. “Yoga can also lower blood pressure and reduce insomnia.”
Other physical benefits of yoga include:
Increased muscle strength and tone
Improved respiration, energy and vitality
Maintaining a balanced metabolism
Cardio and circulatory health
Improved athletic performance
Protection from injury
Aside from the physical benefits, one of the best benefits of yoga is how it helps a person manage stress, which is known to have devastating effects on the body and mind. “Stress can reveal itself in many ways, including back or neck pain, sleeping problems, headaches, drug abuse, and an inability to concentrate,” says Dr. Nevins. “Yoga can be very effective in developing coping skills and reaching a more positive outlook on life.”
Yoga’s incorporation of meditation and breathing can help improve a person’s mental well-being. “Regular yoga practice creates mental clarity and calmness; increases body awareness; relieves chronic stress patterns; relaxes the mind; centers attention; and sharpens concentration,” says Dr. Nevins. Body- and self-awareness are particularly beneficial, she adds, “because they can help with early detection of physical problems and allow for early preventive action.”

One of my favorite singers is Van Morrison. This time of year I keep hearing the lyric, “I can get through February”
Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that’s related to changes in seasons — SAD begins and ends at about the same times every year. If you’re like most people with SAD, your symptoms start in the fall and continue into the winter months, sapping your energy and making you feel moody. Less often, SAD causes depression in the spring or early summer.
Don’t brush off that yearly feeling as simply a case of the “winter blues” or a seasonal funk that you have to tough out on your own. Take steps to keep your mood and motivation steady throughout the year.
I confess I struggle every February with SAD. Over the years I have developed a little formula that ensures that “I can get through February”.
If I can’t get to Florida I Get in front of as many fireplaces I can find. A tanning bed is good but age and quality of the equipment is important and remember “less is more”

This year was a little worse than most so I went to my Doctor and she did a blood test that revealed that I was vitamin deficient so she prescribed some special vitamins. Maybe you should check with your Doctor just in case. – Terry Owens
